In August we found out that 2 replicas of Christopher Columbus’ first voyage to the New World were nearby in Lake Michigan. So, off for a field trip! It was neat that we went as a family and also met our church family there. We had a pretty good tour guide, a man who actually sails with the ships around the U.S. I learned quite a bit about ships. It was great timing, too, since we are starting our study of Columbus and the other explorers this month.
