Yes, I’m a homeschool mom, but that doesn’t mean that my children are confined to our home. I want to make learning fun. This is an excellent opportunity to use this time to expose my children to real-world experiences and be intentional about their education. This means I’m busy scheduling field trips and serving the community.
Because I’ve already done the research, I wanted to make it easy for you and list everything here. I’ve compiled a list and will update the site as I find out about other trips. Unfortunately, some of the field trips are not free, but they do offer discounts.
