What I Learned on Vacation

We are not planning on doing very heavy school this week, as we just got back from vacation. However, because school is such a part of our lifestyle, we seemed to just naturally steer that direction. IMG_0081_bw I had put together a State Journal Book for our trip – with three pages for each state. There was a state symbol page, a “My Favorite Thing I did Here was:” page, and a blank state map for each state we traveled through. Treyton really got a lot from these pages, and I think he learned a lot. IMG_0038 IMG_0034 IMG_0035 IMG_0036 IMG_0037 We were able to complete most of the pages along the way, but there were some that didn’t get finished so today, we decided to finish our journal.


After completing the journal I asked Treyton what he learned on this trip.

At first he said “Nothing, I don’t know.”

But then I said “What about when you played football with dad, did you learn anything about football?”

To which he replied “Ohhhh, I didn’t know you meant that stuff.” He then went on to give me a list of things he learned while on the trip. Here was some of what he said:

~ I learned how to play ski-ball in the game room, and new game with 1, 2 and pushing your hands.

~ In the caverns it can be really dark, a little tiny wet and a little cold.

~ I learned how to kick a football in the air and not just on the ground IMG_0073 ~ Mountain :) Vernon was where George Washington lived (he did need a little help with “George” though he knows the Washington part).

~ He was the first President. Thomas tried to poison him, but the little girl, or boy, saved him.

~ Jesus is so powerful He made the whole world. He even made really big waterfalls which are so awesome.

I love how you made a vacation journal and tied so much schooling into your vacation.

I invite you to link this to my Geography/History Meme at

They always think they learned less than they really did.
