Second half of the trip will be in Villarica at my father in law's house. Very much looking forward to this part of the trip to show the kids the lake district! So in love with this region from what I've seen (limited!) a few years ago for only 8 days!
We will have clients come from the States at times to dirt bike with my husband so he will be working then. He might have to put together a tour or two for dual sports - anyone have advice on where to go and stay as they ride from point to point in the lake district? Thinking to start them in Pucon and go???
During the tours and classes, while he is working/away, I will be on my own without a car in Villarica. How hard/easy is it to navigate the bus in this area??? With little ones?!
Regarding homeschooling... First of all, you are going to do just fine! You know your child better than anybody, so you will be THE perfect teacher.
I would say don't worry about a formal curriculum for your 6 year old, yet. Just read a lot of non-fiction books, and work on basic reading, writing and math. I have a lot of websites that I can suggest to help you with your home school, but I don't have rights to post links here. So, you can either PM me to get those or just google it . The internet is full of resources for homeschooling. You could also join your local home school support group in Colorado to get ideas on what they are using for school and see if there are any online schools there to enroll your child in and work with their curriculum while you are in Chile.
I have homeschooled my children for 6 years and plan to continue to do so when we are in Chile, so please, let me know how it goes for you.
Thank you so much for the encouragement! I need it - I will pm you for the websites!
