Learning is multi-dimensional. I imagine (and hope) some lessons are permeating subconsciously. Experiential learning is quite different than following a curriculum in a classroom. We have ideas about what we want to accomplish this sabbatical year, but there are not definitive objectives, besides learning Spanish. Unlike a normal school year where every learning objective is designed and outlined to the nth degree, the lessons achieved through travel are unanticipated and quite organic. There is plenty of self-discovery and global perspective awakening. At the moment, our boys are spending 4-5 hours per day on their homeschool subjects (geometry, algebra, US history, and earth science.) This is becoming laborious, knowing that American students at home are getting out of school for summer break. Nevertheless, we’ll press on and continue to thrive on the non-structured hours which offer other opportunities for learning. Spending time with new friends, (travelers from different parts of the world and Peruvians) is a valuable part of our learning. Interests in global perspectives, different languages and accents, and people from all walks of life, are common ground for sojourners – and quite fertile ground for rapid friendships. In all honesty, being out of the workforce is at times awkward and worrisome for me and Bob. But we truly value this opportunity we have taken to “worldschool.” We trust that each new day holds an opportunity to Go, Give, and Learn.
