Thankfully, Primus has never resisted our homeschool plans. But she does know what "regular school" is. And sometimes (like when we walk past the backpack aisle at Walmart) she will say things like, "When I go to regular school..."
Whenever I can, I point out all the benefits of doing school at home. One of those benefits is the freedom to do field trips whenever we want.
Last night Primus brought it up and said she wanted to do a family field trip before school started. But every suggestion she came up with (zoo, science museum, river, etc) all cost money. And there is precisely zero extra money floating around our house these days. It just breaks my heart every time I have to explain that to my kids.
So my point here is, please help me think of free field trip ideas. They need to 100% free, as in, I can't even pay for parking. And I can't travel too far because gas is expensive.
At the moment, I'm drawing a total blank. Thanks in advance!
