This week our family will be living a homeschooling dream of mine. We are embarking on a one week RV Field Trip throughout Florida as part of our studies inspired from the book, The Young Naturalist’s Guide to Florida.
You can follow our journey over the next week on this blog. Because thanks to modern conveniences we will be able to do school, laundry, surf the net and watch TV—all while driving down the highway and exploring Florida!
I’ve also decided to spin off some of our studies onto another blog, The Florida Naturalist’s Guide. If you live in Florida you may want to do the study along with us, or tell your Floridian homeschooling friends about it. I will post my resources, lesson plans and field trip information to the blog as we complete them. You should feel free to use Mr. Linky and link to any blog posts of activities you do related to the study.
To truly experience the RV lifestyle we are not going to be eating out. Oh no, all of our meals will be prepared by Chef Mom on the RV. So I’ve begun working on recipes and pack lists as we have to bring all of our own bedding, supplies and cookware. This should be interesting since I have picky little eaters!
Your prayers (RV tips and recipes) will be appreciated!
AWESOME! We want to do this too!
AWESOME! I am so happy for you guys. We just went to Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center in Stuart and fed the stingrays. Absolutely a MUST if you come this way http://www.floridaoceanographic.org/
There’s also the Manatee Observation and Education Center in Fort Pierce. We are going tomorrow for movie night!
We would love to meet you if you are in the area!

I’m still so jealous! Looking forward to the new posts as you travel. Prayers for you and your family for a safe, educational, and fun trip!!!
Oh please tell me you're going to Marineland & the alligator farm in St. Augustine (& the light house in St. Augustine)…I have family there 🙂
How exciting – I love the very humble tips on RVing!
