We decided early on that the kids needed to follow a more formal program as we felt this is what would work best for our family. The kids are enrolled at FLVS-Florida Virtual School, which is free for Florida residents, and need to complete set assignments every week as well as check in with their teachers. So far the experience has been very positive and both kids are doing very well in keeping up with the work.
Aside from the emergency kit I am carrying, we also have international medical coverage for the 4 of us through International Medical Group.
