My family love to traveling. One week ago was the longest traveling that we ever had. We moved from Java island to Sumatera island. It took two days. We left Java last Friday by airplane, arrived at Batam at the same day, and the next day we used ferry to go from Batam to Kuala Enok - Sumatera, our new place. We spent 2 hours in airplane, and 8 hours in ferry, and arrived at Kuala Enok at Saturday night.


31 Days Traveling & Frugal Homeschooling in Remote Area

Welcome to 31 Days Traveling & Frugal Homeschooling in Remote Area. The series will begin at July 1-31st, 2015. 
Since May 8th, 2015, our family moved from Java island to Sumatera island, in a remote area. The nature is great here! We are living nearby the river, which is a very new place for us to live. Here we can see the eagles fly! Clean water, salty air, and much more.
But we have to learn so many things here to make sure we will save and sound, because there is no supermarket, no hospital, no mall, and only one church!

1. Your neighbour and family will continue asking about your child socialization
Even if you already told them, they won’t believe in you, until your child have his good friends playing at your house.
2. You should have your own library, most of all libraries will ask about your child’s school student ID when apply membership.
And as a homeschool child, they do not have school ID, and therefore can’t apply for library membership.


Thomas Jefferson's Principles In Educational Leadership

Yesterday I was not feeling well, so we are decide to learn on our own. My son chose to learn by reading science books from the We Give Books. I chose to learn about the educational principles of Thomas Jefferson.
Why I chose those topics? A couple days ago I read a review, writing by a homeschool mom that applies the principles of Thomas Jefferson on education her three children, and was pleased with its success. As usual, I was smitten, so would like to know about it. Then I browsed the internet. I met the official link of his book at store, also links the counter principal of his theories.
