30 Days of Gratitude - Day 13 Explore your City!

Today I am thankful for all the opportunities that my city provides us for free.  Today we are off to explore our art museum which is absolutely free.  We take advantage of our parks for walks and exploration, our museums, seasonal activities, and the many other places that offer free admission.  Our area is so rich in history that it is a shame that many of the residents never take the opportunity to explore their own city.  I have made it a goal to explore our city as if we were tourists so we get the most of it.

Do you live in a big, medium, small city?  Do you have a town museum?  Have you been there?  Just last week we went to our county museum.  We have lived here for over 30 years and neither my husband or I had been to our county museum.  There were some great things in there.  We also learned that the very neighborhood that we live in used to be a train stop up until probably right before these houses were built. We also saw many items that we have been talking about recently with the kids.

So much can be just in your own backyard for learning and homeschooling.  Try to take advantage of the free and inexpensive things to do in your own town/city.
