The Mothership

Hello readers. This blog is dedicated to my homeschooling adventures, an extension of TRANSIT ANTENNA: a mobile living experiment and educational resource founded in 2005. In short we are total of 4 creatures - myself, my husband Tom, and our two children, Mateo and baby Harper - who plan on traveling the roads of North America in a waste vegetable oil powered 1981 MCI bus equipped with a micro-farm comprised of chickens, mushrooms, sprouts and herbs.

I have been homeschooling since the birth of my second child, a little under year. To date it has been the most fulfilling (and sometime frustrating) choice I have ever made - much like getting the bus! Basically it came down to a decision to either do or not do what I actually believe in.

Since I made the leap from unfulfilled arts professional to full-time parent and teacher extraordinaire, I am inspired again. My everyday no longer drags on with things I aught to and would rather not do, but instead is driven by the momentum of mine and my children’s curiosities. Ultimately we are FREE…and it feels very, very right.

I hope you will join us as we embark on our journey of living on the road, from start to finish, through our triumphs and failures.
