An excerpt from Jeanne's next post:
"Almost exactly two years before our colonial field trip back East, we took a family trip to Ohio, New York and Washington D.C. We saw many historical sites like our colonial field trip, but with one great exception--we hadn't studied and lived the history behind those places the way we did for our colonial trip.
These two trips were like night and day--one was a nice trip, and one was an exciting adventure that we will always remember.
That was also the difference between our first and second years of homeschooling--night and day.
This year changed our homeschool lives forever."
