I will be really interested to hear about this "roamschooling," which is a great word that I never heard before but that I wish I had thought of. Every once in a while, the possibility flutters to the surface that Mark may get sent to a plant start-up in some interesting place for many weeks in a row, and we muse about swooping the whole family off to Australia or France. Then it flutters away again. One of these days we may catch it.
The nature of co-schooling, such as I do it, is that it pins us down a little more than I might otherwise like. We have created ties to other families in our area, and so I turn down field trips and such if they happen on the wrong days of the week, etcetera, because I'm committed to teaching Latin and history to some kids who aren't mine. But we are getting better at weaving in and out of our different family vacations and things, what with e-mail and Skype and the History Backup Plan, which can be summed up as: "Uh -- sorry we can't get together. I was going to do Louis XIV today. Google something for them."
Anyway, head over to Charlotte Was Both and be encouraging! There are times when I think it would be so horribly hard to be a single parent homeschooler, and other times when I think -- if I was a single parent, it would be soooo much easier to homeschool than to send the children away, if I could possibly manage to make it happen. I cannot wait to hear how the story unfolds in her own family. I hope she writes a book about it.
