Do you have bright kids at home?
Are you thinking about homeschooling a gifted kid?
Would you like to homeschool and travel?

Welcome to "Bright Kids at Home" a place for families who are looking for ideas about homeschooling gifted kids.

"Finally, a practical website geared towards homeschooling and traveling with gifted and talented students."

Homeschooling is exciting and challenging at the same time. Homeschooling a gifted kid is an even more exciting and challenging proposition! We are eclectic homeshoolers who have over a decade of experience. We are homeschooling for academic reasons and while other places on the Internet may say they have information about homeschooling a gifted student, I share what we are actually doing at home for my highly gifted student.

Over the years I have discovered a lot of things sharing my every day with a gifted kid and this website has become a journal of what we have learned as a mentor, as a gifted student, as a gifted kid, as a gifted teen, as travelers, as homeschoolers.

On these pages you will find our stories about how we've traveled the education road at home, you'll find the ideas and resources that worked for my gifted student. I have journaled here the real world traveling that has become part of our homeschooling. You will also find what I have learned and what I am continuing to learn about homeschooling a gifted teen. You'll meet Daphne the Science Guinea Pig! We love Math & Science!

I have put our ideas and experiences online so that your homeschool journey can be great too! Maybe you will find ideas about how you might homeschool your gifted student. Maybe you will take away ideas about how to take your homeschool on the road. Stay a while and look around! We hope you find something here that may be of use to you. If you have questions or comments you can contact us.
