The Most Epic Field Trip
Yes, it's true. If all goes according to plan, our family will be heading to France in six months for the most epic field trip ever! We have a l-o-n-g way to go until we get there, but getting these guide books is one of the first steps in making this trip real.
One of the focuses of the trip is to spend a day or two in Normandy. My Uncle Max flew three missions on D-Day, and we want to honor him by visiting the beaches. Of course, this fits in perfectly with our year studying WWII as well as Laurel's year of American history.
We'll also spend a few days in Paris, and I'd like my kids to see Chartres and Versailles. I would also love to visit Monet's garden in Giverny, a trip we didn't make when I was in France as a high schooler.
We have 3 out of 5 passports still to get and lots of planning to do, but this trip is starting to seem more real!
