Thank you for checking out my blog and getting to know me a little better! My name is Emily Jones and I am originally from middle Tennessee. My husband and I have two beautiful children with one more on the way. We work remotely so we are able to give our children an amazing worldschooling experience.
When I was in college I joined the Disney College Program and worked at Walt Disney World as a lifeguard at Typhoon Lagoon. It was so much fun! One of the most interesting parts about it was getting to know the interns that were there from other countries. I loved listening to them speak to each other in their native languages and tell stories about their lives back in their home countries. I loved it so much that I decided to move to France after my internship with Disney World ended.
I lived in Nice on a visa and attended an international school that was full of students from all around the world. Although I went to learn French, I ended up learning a little bit of several different languages. It was such an amazing experience and I ended up completely falling in love with all things Europe.
While I was there I traveled to several different countries and spent time with friends from the international school in their home countries. I gained a whole new perspective of the world in just a few short years.
In what now seems like a somewhat random turn of events, I came home and joined the Marine Corps. At the time, I thought it would allow me to keep traveling the world and seeing new things. However, I quickly realized that wasn’t what I wanted to do with my life. So I completed my enlistment as a diesel mechanic and then got out.
I moved back to middle Tennessee after getting out of the Marine Corps and shortly thereafter met the man who would become my husband just a few years later.
After we got married and started having children, we decided it was in their best interest if I quit my job so I could stay home and homeschool them. I absolutely love homeschooling. It has been the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. Not to mention my children are learning so much each and every day.
While I’m truly enjoying everything we have going on in our life, I still think we could be doing more for our children. They are, after all, only young once.
I’ll admit I was nervous about telling my husband that I wanted to sell everything we own so we could travel around the world for a few years while our children are still young. Initially, I’m quite sure he thought I might be a little crazy. But he’s very supportive and agreed that we should do everything we can to teach our children about the world and show them that there is SO much more out there than just where you come from.
And that’s it! That’s really all that went into the ultimate decision to become worldschoolers. I created this blog so I can share everything we learn along the way about worldschooling, traveling full time, exploring new places, and more! I hope you enjoy. 🙂
Worldschooling is possible. Traveling full time is possible. I want to share my story with others so they can see that while it may seem intimidating at first, it’s definitely worth trying.
