We had our first field trip of the year last week. We visited the California State Railroad Museum. It was also Emma’s 8th birthday, so the timing was rather fantastic. We spent a couple of hours there and had a great morning. The principal even got to join us. Greyson ran. Greyson said “ohhhhh” about 4,567,873 times. Greyson sorta stole the show, as he often does.
In other exciting news, I managed to get myself in a picture. See if you can find our family shot. It’s a little Where’s Waldo-esque.
Last year I preplanned all of our field trips and I think we did one of them. Field trips can not be planned in advance, I decided. Too many things come up. Free opportunities and new opportunities. One of the greatest things about homeschooling is the flexibility and I want to be able to take advantage of that.
Have you ever wondered how many people’s photos you are in as a background person? Just think, it is possible you could be in hundreds of people’s photo album’s all across America. Something to consider.
I think if finances allowed I would road trip USA it, straight across our nation and hands on learning our way to the completion of the school year. It is simply the best.
There is some pretty cool stuff here in Sacramento and surrounding areas. Touring the USS Hornet is next on my agenda. Now that I am not pregnant and can fit on the “small winding staircases” that they warn you about. Nobody wants a pregnant chick stuck on an aircraft carrier. Nobody at all.
Happy Tuesday, friends!
