Our progress is slow...mostly in the "vision for the future" state. My question is, for those in the US (bonus if you're in NYC!), when is the best time to take kids away from school? I know there will be tremendous benefits to schooling on the road, but I also want to be smart about setting my 2nd grader/7 year old up well for future school placement. I've been thinking that either 3rd or 5th grade would be ideal as I think 4th grade matters more for middle school choices. How does one be smart about being "untraditional?"

We've only just started thinking about this as a possibility. I did tell a mom-friend recently and after telling her I said, "I don't know...maybe it won't happen." Her response was great -- she said, "don't say that! You can make it happen!"
That was just the kind of response I needed.
