WE THERE YET?
by benjamin bennett
I can't wait to hear all
the stories! Reading the funny, bizarre, wondrous, even scary stories
of families traveling around, is one of my great pleasures. National Lampoon's
movie, Vacation is
still one of my favorites!
Why? Been there. Done that.
Got the T-shirt. (Well... all except the part about tying dead grandma
to the roof of the car. But it COULD have happened!)
Right after the holidays,
the IndianaHomeschoolers list all but burst with chat about field trips!
Where do we go? How much? Will the kids like it? Where are the odd and
quirky places to go in Indiana?
Ahh-Ha! That last one just
reminded me! Check out the book in the next column. If you get it, and
if you start making plans to end your cabin fever by, say, visiting every
fiberglass statue over 50 feet tall in the state -- let us know! We LOVE
a good travel story! Plus... there's two of those statues right in Muncie.
Give me a call and I'll hold your camera and take your picture for you!

FIELD TRIP SUGGESTIONS
FROM HOOSIER HOMESCHOOLERS:
is homeschooled, and while studying about the electoral process we took
advantage of visiting the 26th President Benjamin Harrison's home in Indianapolis.
It's three stories high an 10,000 sq. ft. Our co-op went and found it
a great place to visit! It also has a section dedicated to the Women's
right to vote movement in the carriage house. Magnificent home and wonderful
information. Call ahead to get a scheduled tour! Happy field tripping!
