The Henry Ford Museum had a Target family fun day giving us free admission last week (plus bonus cousin time!); so we pulled Big out of school for a learning field trip, packed a lunch, and headed out. We don't let him "skip" very often, and made sure he learned something while he was there by quizzing him after the fact. We've visited before, but didn't make him learning something the top priority of that visit as he wasn't quite old enough yet. He seemed most interested in Rosa Parks, the Ku Klux Klan, and the large farming machines. I love that we're able to do these trips every once in a while. It almost makes me wish I had the funds and patience to homeschool.
