The Barefoot Nomad Kids – Cole and Jordan
- Cole: The kind of animals that you see.
- Jordan: Turtles. We get to see turtles.
- Cole: One thing is you can never really judge something until you really try it.
- Jordan: I learned how to sleep on an overnight train.
- Cole: When we travel, the way that I do school is my mom and dad are my teachers but there’s also another teacher back in Canada. I go to a normal school when we’re back in Canada.
- Jordan: I started kindergarten this year and just started school for the first time.
- Cole: Hola. One. Hello. Two. Aloha. Three. Bonjour. Four.
English 100%. Spanish 10%. Hawaiian five words. French 30 words.
- Jordan: English, and a little bit of Spanish. Hola!
- Cole: OK. Brett, Jojo, Zach, Kailey, Ella, Hailey, Olivia, Lars and Anya. I have tons of friends back from my old Kamloops school, too many to remember. Ken, Colton, Cooner Y, Conner S, Tristan, Maddy, Ken, Lainie. Let’s see, there’s Michael and a lot more.
- Jordan: Ella, Maddie and Sophie, Lars and Anya and Ken. Oh and Hailey and Olivia!
- Jordan: The camel ride. But it hurt our bums.
- Cole: I liked riding in a hot air balloon and riding a camel, but I don’t consider anything we did a real adventure. Walking around in forests or places where there are not paths would be an adventure for me. Or walking around in the desert. Anywhere we can make a path behind us, but still able to get lost.
- Cole: Usually there are three games we play. Skylanders, Pokemon and MinoMonsters.
- Jordan: PBS Kids.
- Cole: Cosmo, our cat. Grandma and Papoo, Grandma, Ken my best friend. All my friends.
- Jordan: Ella and Cosmo, Grandma and Papoo (her word for her Grandpa) and my other Grandma. Lila (Grandma’s cat).
- Cole: Kitty, a stuffed cat who we pretend can fly and who loves water and can talk.
- Jordan: Turtley. My stuffed turtle who wears a hat and can talk.
- Cole: On an adventure in the forest.
- Jordan: To Hawaii.
If you would like your child/children to be a part of “Through the Eyes of the Traveling Child” series, please contact us.
We often are asked about what the kids think of their experience as a traveling child and how things are going. Do they have friends, how are they being educated and are they social? We thought these are likely questions for all types of families, so we decided to start a family travel interview series “Through the Eyes of the Traveling Child”.
We don’t often get exposed to the opinion of the kids and perhaps think we should. We all know the Wagoner kids are full of their two cents worth and are loving travel. If you would like to read other interviews in our Traveling Child Series, just click the image below.
Thanks for following along! Do you have a traveling child who would like to be part of our series? Just let us know.
