EDUCATION

Hola friends. Homeschooling, worldschooling, unschooling, radical unschooling and the list goes on. These are just a handful of the titles given to alternative education paths. How does one make sense of all the terminology? I struggled for some time as to what we should be calling our schooling style. You would be surprised how often […]

Largo’s thoughts on his French School

EDUCATION

Hola friends. Wow, did that Spanish class kick my a$@, but it felt good to be making an attempt at learning the language. Baby steps! I already knew approximately 50% of what we learned today, committing the rest to memory was the real struggle. Plus, it did not help my confidence any having a 23-year-old sitting beside […]

It was a pretty low-key weekend with local adventures and family time. Where are you? Are you in snowed in? Hanging by the pool? Eating beignets […]

Early World-schooling Challenges: Our Experience

We found out today that he is recovering from Mononucleosis and a bacterial infection. The doctors are not sure when he […]

EDUCATION: An Int’l School for Largo

Costa Rica, EDUCATION

Hola friends. I am sure by now you are wondering what we have done with Largo and his education. He is being educated out in the wild by the parrots and howler monkeys. It is amazing how much he has learned about swinging from the vines and eating banana’s (wink, wink). Ok, let’s get serious. If you read this post […]

The Sueiro family had to skip our adventures for the weekend because we needed to work, although I do consider the Feria (farmer’s market) and grocery shopping quite an adventure here in Costa Rica. We are still adjusting to our new environment and all the changes in our life regarding career and […]
