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.

Since beginning our homeschool Odyssey, I have spent many hours online researching ideas, materials, curricula, programs, websites, and activities to do with the kids.  There are many great free and for-charge websites out there.  I discussed one a while back:


I have recently, in my search for Lego-related school resources, discovered CurrClick.com.  CurrClick is a website that offers some free and some for-charge classes...LIVE classes where your children can interact with the instructor. One of which is Lego Club.  Membership is free.  There are 3 - 4 classes each month (same class repeated) which follow a monthly theme.  If you miss the live class one week, you can attend that live class the following week.  Or, you can watch the recording at your own time.  The past years' meetings are also archived to be viewed.

I have just started checking this website out, but it looks to be a great place where many publishers sell or give away their content and materials, and which offers other choices for home schooling lessons.

Today's lesson was about snow and snowflakes.  It included a video about Ken Libbrecht who collects snowflakes and creates snowflakes.  The class discussed the different types of structures snowflakes form and then created a multi-step Lego snowflake.  Roni Bergerson is the instructor and does a wonderful job.  She is live as she teaches and all the participants chat through a text chat room.  
The class lasted about an hour and was engaging.

Looking forward to seeing what else CurrClick.com.

Did you know SNOT is an official, or maybe unofficial yet to be confirmed, LEGO term?
