Homeschool Day at the Texas History Museum

I've never been to the Texas History Museum.

They apparantly have a great display of Texas History as well as several movies about the birth of Texas. They will be hosting a homeschool day on Feb. 26, 2007 from 10am-3pm. There will be docent led activities, demonstrations and role playing. Sounds like a big time for Texas homeschooled kids.

That I'd like to see!

I've never been to Avebury.

It is apparantly a tourist-friendly version of Stonehenge. You have the large grassy area. You have the mind boggling circle of stones. You have the never ending question of how the stones got there. You have kids running over the knolls. You have tourists picnicing in the area. You get all the enchantment of Stonehenge, in a hands on environment.

That I'd like to see.

Across the Border

I've never been to Mexico.

Although it is just a few hours south to cross the border, we have never crossed over. Although I've heard Spanish all my life and have picked up a few words and phrases here and there, I really cannot speak it. If we do go to Mexico, it would be nice to be able to converse, rather than relying on high school Spanish from twenty years ago.

Now there is a digital course available for only $29.95-for the entire course! This is the same course used in educating diplomats! These courses normally cost a good deal of money-I've looked at it in the past. But now to get the whole course for less than half of what it normally costs?!

That I'd like to see!

I've never been to Australia.

The land is just filled with a large amount of animals found nowhere else. There are koala, and kangaroos. There are wallaby, and wombats and echidna. And how about the quoll, the numbat, the marsupial mole? And last but not least, the infamous platypus.

That I'd like to see.

New Orleans

I've never been to New Orleans.

Neither before the hurricane or since have I visited this historic city. It is rich in history and heritage. Good food and music abound in the Big Easy. I hear they are getting tourists back in town for big events like the Mardi Gras parade. I wonder how long it will take to rebuild this city to restore it to its former brillance.

That I'd like to see.
