2013/14 Field Trips

One of the (many) beautiful things about homeschooling, is the possibility to take field trips whenever and wherever we can.

How many field trips annually do public schools take? I don’t know. I’ve been told it depends on the school district, maybe the school. Some say our local area only get 1 or 2 per year.  I believe some schools can afford more, for whatever reason.

Us? We always seem to fill up our school years with all sorts of trips and activities and revel in the ability to visit places during a time when most families are busy in school and work.

Below is a list of some of the places we visited during the 2013/14 school year.
I count 16!!

These are only the things we’ve done that I would consider a field trip. There are still many more activities that we did, away from home, that were a blast as well, but weren’t what I would consider a “field trip.”
