Thank goodness the weather is getting warmer. My kids are going stir crazy... and taking me with them!

We have found some alternatives to the cold, wet outside, however. Playplaces - at McDonalds and Burger King, going o the mall, visiting museums. These are some ways for the kids to get some exercise. I suppose we should join the YMCA.

Today we are in the middle of exploring from home. We're studying Marco Polo, and the kids will be creating their own "imaginary travel" journal, which will take them to places they've never seen, but will like to see!

I collected some travelers magazines when we drove through several states, and they will be cutting out pictures from those as well - with places they HAVE visited!

I do recommend that when you drive across state lines, to stop at the first rest stop inside the state - where you can pick up maps, discount books, and wonderful flyers and magazines - for free!
