Our Story

Welcome to our site! We are Joanne & Steve. After 20+ years working for a city school department and police department, we sold almost everything, bought an RV, and started living on the road with our three children. Joanne homeschools and works online.
What we have chosen is to live life as unencumbered as we possibly can and to spend time with our family, for our family, and as a family.
This website is a record of our travels. But, we also hope to educate, entertain, and inform others about RVing, roadschooling, and the great places we visit in this country.

iPad App Review: Stack the States

We purchased the iPad over 2 years ago now.  We originally bought it so Ian could use it to help us plan this adventure and feel a part of the planning.  It has turned into an awesome piece of technology that we use daily.

The kids use it for schoolwork wherever we may happen to be.  Before they can play a game (Minecraft is the biggie) they have to do schoolwork.  Some of the apps we have purchased, or downloaded for free, I'd like to share here.

One of our absolute favorites is Stack the States...  

It costs .99 to download...low-risk cost I'd say.  All three kids use it, not to mention the adults at times.  Chloe can beat any adult in recognizing the shape of any US state, and is fast becoming an expert at each state's capital and flag. Ian is right there as well, and Brendan is coming along swimmingly.

It is a fun, cute, fast-paced, reward-based game with multiple levels that need to be unlocked through acquiring states by answering questions correctly. Your kids are learning and don't even know it!

Check it out!  And you may like Stack the Countries as well.
