An epic roadschool adventure by the Extremely Good Parenting team using books and travel to make learning come to life.
We're the Carrero Family! We have a family of [almost] 6:
Grandma is flying into Boston to help Kara and the 3 kids drive for approximately a week across the country. We'll then visit family in the heart of the USA for a month. Then Chris is flying in and we're spending two weeks driving home on a completely different route!
But because we live on the East Coast, we're also taking advantage of the rich history that surrounds us both in terms of museums and historic landmarks.
While we're accepting sponsorships, we do pay out of pocket for tickets, gasoline, and more. But we have done a lot to minimize our cost. For instance, we're using points for hotels when possible, bringing an instant pot with us, and of course taking advantage of as many free locations as possible.
We've tried to maximize our space by taking out one of the seats in our Honda Odyssey and pack minimally in terms of clothes in duffel bags. Of course we have homeschool materials with us including books and activities, but we also have snacks, an ice chest, games, and a beloved 3 quart instant pot to be able to save money by cooking meals along the way. We only have one single stroller and it's a GB Pockit that folds into a super compact rectangle
We'll share more details soon!
