Always Going Somewhere
We are a family of four. We travel everywhere together and enjoy building family memories. Our family manages to travel a little bit every year due to the fact that my sister and I are both teachers and have summers off each year. Since we enjoy our parents' company so much, we ALWAYS travel together and make many happy memories.
On some occasions, our family takes along a large group of some of our students. My sister and I both teach music classes to home-schooled students via piano lessons, but most of our students are our handbell choir ringers! We teach 4 choirs in levels of beginner, intermediate, advanced, and TRAVELING advanced. Our students come from varied distances to our classes - some driving as far as just around the corner to the seminary where we hold our (independent) classes once a week, and some driving 45 - 60 minutes one-way! If you've never heard handbells or a handbell choir before, click on our external web page link above to hear a little of this handbell music that is so much a part of our lives!
When planning our trips, we always visit VT. Thanks to good, helpful advice from some of you VT members, we are able to build a truly fabulous, unforgettable trips! Our trouble seems to be that we're so busy traveling and planning trips, that getting our own tips on our pages just doesn't seem to happen. Does anybody else have the same trouble?
All of us were brought up on traveling. Beginning with our own home-state in the United States, we eventually decided to see the whole of our beautiful country. Also a home-schooling family, we decided to make that a part of our educational curriculum and took a 5-week trip from the east coast to the west and back again in our camper. We so enjoyed that experience, that we did it again 4 years later. The result is that we've visited every state in the US. We meandered into bordering countries, Mexico and Canada. Once we covered the majority of our home country, including Hawaii, it was time to begin seeing the rest of the world!
It is the most happy thing to be able to travel together as a family. We hope to be able to eventually share our family's travel journal which may help you plan your own happy times.
