At one point on our trip a fellow parent teased me and Kristina by saying something along the lines of “the Belfiore kids aren’t allowed to use iPads, are they. :)” I should have said “sure– but since we’re homeschooling, we want them to be doing creative work … writing, presenting, etc. … and there’s a better choice!”
I was sitting in the airport in Dubrovnik and looked up at our family and noticed the scene above. It’s our three homeschoolers writing their travel journals, creating powerpoints (seriously! more on this to come), drawing or editing pictures. We didn’t MAKE them do this.. we just give them reading lists, pre-port assignments.. and the best tools in the world for the job. 🙂
What’s more.. beyond the 2-in-1s on their lap, I love the fact that there’s a Kindle, ukelele (thank you David Hornik) and stuffed dog all at-the-ready… and tha tthe two girls are both wearing Star Wars shirts! Be still my beating heart!
