Besides all of our adventures on vacation we have also visited a local Maple Sugar House and the local newspaper. Both were great! It is sugaring season where we live and the sap is running. Many of our friends are in the sap making business. We toured the sugar farm of a local home school family and then had a sugar party with consists of sugar on snow (syrup poured on snow and twirled on a fork like taffy), a donut (for fun), and a pickle (take a bite every now and then to cut down on the sweetness so you can eat more syrup). We still had snow, so then the kids played. There was a hint of spring in the air which was nice. But I also had my cup of tea to cut down on the chill in my toes.
We visited the local paper with a different home school group. I have always wanted to take the kids there. I used to want to work for the paper. When I was in high school I was on the newspaper staff and I also wrote and worked for a couple of local area papers. So, it brought back memories of those days.
