Road Trip

Our 2010 road trip will soon be coming to an end.  It's been both fun and educational.  We have visited so many states and learned so many things!  We visited places that none of us have ever been before and were able to learn together - as a family.  Isn't that the best way to do anything?

We will soon start "classroom type" school.  Although we've done some school on the trip and surely learned a lot - there is a lot to be done yet.  We must be diligent over the next few weeks to get caught up on the subjects we didn't focus on while we were gone.  I'd say we're caught up with History for a while, though!  =)

The kids got to see things such as The White House, The Capital Building, many different monuments and walls, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, a very old apply orchard (and got to pick their own apples), the mountains, birthplaces of many people in America's History, also many fun places - Graceland (yes, even some learning there!), and Branson, MO.  What fun!

As we end our journey soon - we'll all be happy to be home again.  We've been gone since Sept. 5 - and will return tomorrow - Sept. 17.  Pretty long trip!  Home sounds good.  It's always nice to be in your own bed!
