The Palsson family leaves Germany this week and discovers France. As they journey through Europe, they’re inspiring all of us to take on new adventures, try new things, and find time to have fun as a family. Read what’s happening in the Discover the World section of the Homer app and see where you’re inspired to go.
The days are getting longer. And with the absence of school comes freedom from our humdrum routines. Most of us greet the summer months with a mixture of relief (Ahh, no more lunches to pack at 6 a.m.) and anxiety (Will my daughter’s brain turn to mush?).

As the founders of the Homer learning program for kids ages 2-8, we’re often asked for tips on how parents can fill the summer months with valuable learning experiences for their children.
