We are part of a homeschool group of about 20 families. The purpose of this group to get our kids together for field trips and parties. It is really nice because there are so many great places to take our kids on field trips – but it is usually easier and more fun to go with friends! Last year we went on some field trips that I never would have thought to do on my own. Each mom in our group is responsible for planning at least one field trip and helping on one party committee.
I planned a field trip to our local police station. We had almost 20 kids of all different ages. The officer in charge of the tour did a great job and he was very patient with all the kids and their questions.
We have quite a few field trips scheduled for the next couple of months! If you are a homeschooling family, I highly encourage you to find a group of homeschoolers with whom you can connect. It is great for the kids and for moms, too!!
