Roadschool Record Keeping Made Easy

Even unschoolers might record attendance, activities and projects in case of a domicile change. Being prepared helps families stay cool under pressure! As with any system, the best one is the one you will use.

Vision for a Successful Roadschool Year

 

It’s time to look ahead to next year’s roadschool plan. The Roadschool Moms team begins a 12-part series all about planning a successful roadschool year. Up first: Your traveling homeschool needs a vision! Special guest, Mary Jane Williams joins MB this week to share her tips on developing a mission for this important piece of the fulltime RVing family puzzle.

These veteran homeschool moms are here to remind listeners that it’s never too early to plan for the next school year. Tune in to this episode to find out how to stay on track and be intentional with next year’s learning adventure.

Every family’s goals are different. This podcast message is a reminder that comparison is a thief; therefore, it’s important to develop a plan that works for your household. Questions to lead you down the right path include:

  • What does education mean to your family?
  • Do your kids have specific interests to be addressed this year?
  • What are your spiritual goals?
  • How will your travel goals factor into your plans?
  • What life skills can you introduce to your kids?
  • Are non-academic areas a focus for your family?
  • How can goals be achieved for each roadschooler individually while keeping the vision for your family unit?

Other homeschool planning advice this week’s show brings to the table include staying off social media for this important task. Instead, look to your heart for the vision needed for a successful roadschool year.

It wouldn’t be a Roadschool Moms show without the discussion of travel plans. These mamas share  great tips on how to integrate travel goals into homeschool plans. Mary Jane talks about past trips in national parks, popular destinations, and food locales to find the best learning adventures. A few nuggets of information is revealed from their family’s  priorities for future travel and where it will take them later this year.

This podcast is summed up with the thought

Children are not things to be molded, but people to be unfolded.

Roadschool moms everywhere are challenged to set a VISION for next year’s roadschool  that will intentionally unfold their children while adding wisdom to the family homeschool foundation.

Easter Message: What Do You Deserve?

This Easter Sunday, KT and MB chat a bit about the philosophy of getting what you deserve.  The philosophy in our culture teaches us that the harder we work, the more we deserve. Whether it’s a daily latte, a luxury car, that big house on the hill, or the annual fancy vacation, we believe that we are deserving of these fine things.

But, God’s Kingdom is a topsy turvy world in that we all fall short. We are all sinners and yet, we are saved by grace. While our sins earn us separation from the Lord, our Father created a way for each of us to have eternal life. Through faith, we are saved. This is not what we deserve.

This reward system is a contradiction to the everyday American idea that you work hard so you can play hard. Our culture is built on the idea that if you work hard enough, you will be rewarded with the things you so deserve. God doesn’t teach this idea. As a matter of fact, God doesn’t issue a ticket to heaven based on your work ethic. Everlasting life in His kingdom is based on one simple action. Believe.

You can’t work your way into heaven. At the end of the day, the end of your life, God does not tally up the hours you toll. He doesn’t measure your worth by anything you do at all! Instead, he gives us the opportunity to have everlasting life by believing in Him. No work involved. No merit pay. No time card needed. Your eternal vacation has already been booked! God sent his only son to pay the debt. We earn it by a following this one single command. “For whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

In this special Easter message, Kimberly and Mary Beth encourage you to do these two things:

  • Practice grace daily
  • Show love one to one another

For this is how you will receive exactly what you do not deserve. Click play now for an inspiring Easter message from your Roadschool Moms.
