DH and I retire at the end of this year from the military.  We are set so that we can take 2-3 years and not work but are looking at only a year for travel.  We are thinking of pulling the kids out of school, renting out our home for a year, and hitting the road.  Either that or sell the house and buy one when we get back. 

They will be in grades 4, 5,and 7.

No, not on your life.  I would travel after the kids are gone.

I would talk to the kids and see how they feel about it first. That isn't something I would decide without their input.

If you are organized enough to maintain their schoolwork while traveling, then yes. Do it. They will learn so much and traveling is almost always beneficial to everyone involved.

If they've no learning disabilites I might.  My problem is that I'm literally not capable of teaching ds14 his alegbra; he's ahead of what I know.  And ds12 always needed tutoring for his reading.  Now if you feel capable of teaching then sure go for it.  Just check with your schools what the plan is because in Florida I think they have to have testing and plans submitted.  I'm not sure how traveling would work.

I know someone who did this.  I think they enjoyed the year they took to travel, but in the end felt it wasn't the best choice they could have made.
