Will They Go to "Regular" High School?

 

Will they go to regular high school?

Before I talk about the one homeschool question that drives me nuts (well, there are many, but this week I have ONE), I have exciting news: Collage Friday is BACK!

The Best Homeschool Field trip - Seeing Winter the Dolphin

 

Visiting Winter at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium

Our family makes many trips to Florida. I am a native Floridian and still have family in the Sunshine State.

Each time we travel to Florida we plan an educational "side trip". This summer I wanted it to be something super special for Anna because we were traveling on her 13th birthday.

Our trip to see Winter the dolphin at The Clearwater Marine Aquarium will go down as the best field trip ever!
