|Hogwarts Castle, Universal Islands of Adventure (Under Construction - February 2010)|
So, I’m planning a field trip to Universal Islands of Adventure. We’re making a trip to go visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. (I love Harry.) We’ve waited until the weather cooled off, and the lines died down a little bit. And with the release of the new movie on November 19th, we figured late November/early December would be a perfect time.
Now, if you’ve never planned a field trip for a bunch of homeschoolers, well, you’ve never really lived.
Homeschoolers are a special breed. I’ve always said, there’s a REASON why we homeschool.
A lot of us like to do things our own way. And in our own time.
Now, that’s not to say that homeschoolers are disorganized. Or too relaxed. I know plenty of homeschool families that have strict regimens.
It’s not about that.
But I will tell you, that organizing homeschoolers is like, well, herding cats.
(No, not “hurting” cats. HERDING cats.)
You ever try to herd cats? Can’t be done.
Now, I’m sure I’m exaggerating, just a bit. But it is interesting trying to organize something for a homeschool group.
But that’s part of what makes us such a unique bunch.
So, back to planning. Wish me luck!!!
