The outdoor classroom. It is true that travelling by bike is the slow way - but it is also the way that you get to use your senses, catch things out the corner of your eye, stop, look, feel, discover, uncover. When we packed up our house 2 months ago, we packed up the toys, the tv, the books, the stuff, the kids stuff, the mountain of kids stuff. For Christmas, just before we left they got some more stuff (lovely stuff), but we had to leave it behind as 2 tandem bikes and a trailer can only fit so much! But you know what - the kids are surviving, thriving in fact. When they are outdoors, exploring, discovering, using their imaginations, they are at their best. They are happy, they are independent, and they are definitely not hanging off their parents. Truth be told we haven’t done a lot of ‘school work’ yet... but the questions we get at the end of each day make me think there’s plenty of educating happening.
