Travel: the best education

Our family recently returned from a week-long vacation to Miami and the Florida Keys. Our school district did away with spring break this year, so I was hesitant to pull the kids from school (all that dang homework!!), but a little voice kept telling me it would be worth it.

I’m so glad I listened!

Travel is a marvelous education – one you can never possibly get sitting in a classroom.IMG_5350

There was less screen time and more hands-on time.

Lots of fresh air and slimy, fun things.

Less reading about other cultures, more tasting, touching, living it.
