My Multiverse

Are you familiar with the word “multiverse?” According to the dictionary, it refers to a hypothetical collection of identical (or diverse) universes, including our own. I wonder what my alternate universe life might look like? When homeschooling teens, your world changes lightning fast.  The coursework is increasingly hard; the questions and discussions: intense.  The emotions…

And, That’s a Wrap.

As I pinch myself, we made it through.  With our oldest in HIGH SCHOOL now (audible gasp), this past school year was a real experiment. I honestly never thought I would homeschool high school – it just seemed to be a natural point of exit, as if what we were doing was not “real school.”…

Adventure School Rocks

“Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”    –  Martin Luther King Jr.   We are often asked what model we use in our Travel School.  There are un-schoolers, classic education home-schools, and many other hybrids. We choose a semi-rigorous classification. We call ourselves Adventure School or Travel School, because that…

Out of Experience, Comes Character

Travel School for us starts each year with two solid weeks of home-schooling at home.  We use the time to get into the groove of school, discuss our goals for the year and prepare, academically, for the places we will visit. Aristotle said in his book of Poetics that “decisions define character.” Each day of our travel-school represents…

Poetry and People in Paradise

If Once You Have Slept on an Island If once you have slept on an island   You’ll never be quite the same; You may look as you looked the day before   And go by the same old name, You may bustle about in street and shop;    You may sit at home and sew, But you’ll…

Adventure School

There are many families that are doing what we are doing, or have done a similar version. We do not feel alone, nor that we are setting any records in raising/educating our kids in an alternative way. There are many types of “homeschoolers” and home-schooling families. We don’t seem to fit into most categories we have…

Homeschool at Home?

How is this school year slipping by us so quickly? Time is fleeting and our family unit has grown strong. We have all flourished with our new school setup, moving locations and most of all in that we are learning and adventuring together. In the course of the last month, Tony flew to the Caribbean for three weeks…

2015 Here we come!

The Reys have started 2015 in a place we never thought we would be. Doing something we never imagined we would do. And yet, here we are!  We are feeling blessed and grateful for all we have and all we are doing together.  2014 finished with a quiet, peaceful and happy crescendo.  At this point,…

Amigos y Aventuras en Valencia.

   Amigos y Aventuras… the very best part of traveling, is seeing old friends. We awoke early on the 22nd to take a short flight to Valencia, our old home. Valencia is a place we already love and know so well. It was a week of exploring the city with the kids and re-connecting them…
