and FREE educational activities?
Someone from homeschool park day arranged a school tour for us, and we had a lovely day filled with military vehicles, animals, giant bubbles, and more.
Here's our $1 purchase. The kids got flavored honey sticks, 4 for a buck.
We brought a picnic lunch and ate in a quiet corner in the shade.
Then it was more fun, including the "boot camp" obstacle course the army sponsored.
We watched more than one kid go down in the tires, but Eli did great.
Jack just happened to be wearing his Air Force shirt from Lackland AFB.
A quiet moment while the brothers were in line for something.
Jack doing the Army crawl section.
Some other large, khaki armored vehicle. They all started to run together at this point, but the "army guys" running the stations were mostly all very nice and interacted with the kids well. This one was ready for a break. ;)

You know how the end of the school year has some "fun days" where nothing much happens in the way of book work? This was one of those. But I think learning happened anyway, so we're counting it as school.
In other news, we don't have exact travel dates yet, but it looks like I may leave a couple days earlier than we thought! It seems Luke's province may allow us to receive him on 6/13, instead of waiting until the following Monday. I hope to have dates finalized tomorrow or the next day so we can book tickets and such. Brianna made me a paper chain yesterday, and I'm holding my breath to see if I'll get to take a few extra links off soon!
