Homeschool field trips. Discover your backyard, your community, your state. Historical sites, science museums, zoos, caves, and parks. Places of interest for homeschoolers, home educators, unschoolers and independent learners who desire to move beyond the "cookie-cutter" box mentality.
Experience learning and education as it should be!
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
~ Mark Twain
This section requires more time than I currently have! Unfortunately, right now, there are no field trips listed. Eventually, maybe, hopefully .... someday I'll find time to develop this section.
Travel sparks curiosity as nothing else can. If you are in the doldrums, hit the road. Even a day trip or a few hours exploring somewhere unknown can be very mind expanding.
Occasionally the children and I will head out the driveway for places unknown. Someone just tells the driver "go right" and "turn left up ahead" and we see where we end up! Other times I'll hand one child the road map and tell them "We're going to ___ and it's your job to get us there. I don't care what route we take."
This section will be a continual work in progress, as I locate picture of past explorations and wrote about the many places we have traveled, both here in Alabama and further afield.
I also plan to include articles on Alabama's counties. These articles may be helpful in finding a local place of interest to visit or in just learning more about a particular county, both it's present attractions and it's history.
