That is what hubby and I refer to when we speak of our plans for a Cross Country Field Trip.

We started discussing this as a possibility several weeks ago and were waiting for some things to be finalized before we said anything to the girls.  Last night, we were able to tell them of our plans and are they ever excited!

The trip is still several weeks away, but we are making our plans which, at this moment, will include stops in Colorado, California and Arizona.  It will be at least 16 days of travel and along the way we’ll visit various National Parks and spend some time with Mickey Mouse and friends at Disneyland.  There are just so many possibilities along the way that 16 days most certainly isn’t enough time, but we’ll make due and learn as much as we can.

Once we have confirmed our stops, the girls and I will begin our study of each site in our homeschool lessons.  It will be a wonderful opportunity for all of us and it’s something I had dreamed of doing as part of our homeschool program.  To me, there is no better way to learn than to experience.  This summer, we will experience!

Here is a little preview of some of the sites we hope to visit.  Let me know if you recognize any of these sights.



  1. What a very fun (and educational) time! We leaving in a about a week for a week and a half trip to CO, NM, and TX. I cannot wait! We will experience the mountains, the sand dunes, and a volcano along the way.

  2. WOW!!! No beach vacation? Or are you driving down to southern Texas for some beach time? 🙂

    Your trip sounds wonderful though!! Can’t wait to read all about it on the blog.

  3. I definitely recognize Cliff Palace at Mesa Verde NP, then it looks like maybe the Redwoods, Grand Canyon, and Highway 101 in California. How did I do? We recently were down in the Southwest and enjoyed several of the National Parks in the area. You won’t be disappointed. Looks like a great trip!
