The best piece of advice I can offer to students and parents for surviving the school year with ease is to go with the flow. It's so easy to get stressed out about schedules and academics. But, we need to remember to have fun too. Sometimes, my family likes to take a weekend day-trip in the middle of winter just to get away from our normal routine and change it up a bit. These little field trips give us a chance to chill out and continue the learning while we're on the road. Travel can be a great tool to keep your kids educated about different people and places, and you're spending time as a family too!
