I was just going to suggest seeing things in your "own back yard" so to speak, but you beat me to it!

I am a "must travel" Momma too …. Oftentimes, we travel to pick up a child we've adopted overseas (smile) but, lately, we've been traveling for educational and mind-broadening reasons alone.

I was in India in January (with 2 of my sons) and right now am in Florida.

I think traveling is SUCH an important aspect of learning to "love learning". It is impossible to travel without learning…

Even if it is mucking around Disney World for the last few weeks!

Last summer, we were in the same $$$ predicament as you (as we were saving for the India trip) so we did local, long weekend excursions that'd we'd never done before.

I have been raised in Indiana and the excursions we embarked on taught me SO much about the place I have lived for 36 years!

It reminded me that one mustn't cross oceans to 'travel'. :)

I'm going to follow your blog!

Andrea

LOVE IT! And they're mixing them with purple pansies, I believe? Enjoy digging into the parts of town that you haven't yet ventured through. Can't wait to read about it!

We're always amazed by what we unearth. Often, we live near VERY cool places!

So we make a special emphasis on what I call "Backyard Adventures," and we end up really enjoying ourselves. Hope you find the same to be true!
