Each year (until high school when everything is online), Tanner got a box of learning delivered to our front door from Connections Academy, a virtual school available in most states. All the books, art supplies and resources needed to work concurrently with his online lessons.
It was such a fun exploration of possibilities for the coming year.
Combined with the teachers, live lessons, field trips and support from the school, we’ve had such a great experience with virtual school.

Years ago, we decided we wanted to be the primary influence in our kids’ upbringing.
That takes two steps …
1) Bring your kids home from public school (or start them in virtual school if young enough). We recommend http://ConnectionsAcademy.com
2) Bring yourself home from the dreadful job http://MomAndDadWorkFromHome.com
Then … start LIVING!!
Imagine the true freedom of your kids doing their school work from around the world while you travel as a family, and you’re generating $100 – $1,000+ a day from your laptop.
Tanner is now in 10th grade doing Florida Virtual School (FLVS) in partnership with Connections Academy. As I write this, we’re sitting on our back patio. Kevin and I working on some projects for our home business… Tanner working on a science lesson and our rescue puppy, Sashi asleep in her bed next to us.
We got up when our eyes opened… ate a great breakfast and connected with each other before moving on to getting some work done in a relaxed manner. Listening to the sound of cicadas and some distant birds as we peacefully live our dreams of being a true family from home and out of the box. We are so blessed!
