One of the most frequent questions I get asked when people find out we’re traveling indefinitely is: ”So what do you do about schooling?” I always am tempted to respond, “Who needs a stinkin edumacation!

I am very happy to report that beginning this month we will have a new weekly feature! Tigger has decided that he will begin posting a weekly photo or drawing, and once a month will write a post. Wednesdays will now be Tigger days on 1Dad1Kid.com.
I am so excited that he’s going to be taking a more active role in the blog and hope that progresses even further as time goes on. I plan not to edit his posts so that you get to really read them in his voice.
Thanks so much for giving him so much support on his 1st photo installment. I really believe that helped give him the confidence and encouragement to take the next step.

While interviewing all these kids and young adults who have done long-term traveling, I figured it was only fair, and might be interesting, to interview Tigger. He is 9 years old and has never been out of the country, although he has visited several states within America so isn’t a complete newbie when it comes …
