Field Trips

Experience History in North Carolina!

Smoke drifts from a campfire, mingling with the smells emanating from a black kettle suspended above it. A group of children of diverse ages draws near to what appears to be a vision from the past—someone dressed as a Civil War soldier or maybe an eighteenth century longhunter. "Are you going to eat that?" one young scholar inquires. "Did you really sleep out here last night?" "Is that gun real?" The questions often come as quickly as they can be answered, and one answer can generate another host of questions.

Homeschool Field Trip

Following a parting prayer, we are off! It has begun—another family vacation, or, as my wife, the teacher, refers to it, another homeschool field trip.
