Something that we always try to do with our kids, particularly since we are worldschooling, them is visiting historical sites. We visit Atlanta Georgia quite frequently and I've gotten the chance to go to Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site a couple of times. Oliver, our oldest is starting to understand why we visit MLK National Historic Site as

It’s been two years since we first fell in love with the Golden Isles of Georgia.  Our first experience was on St Simons Island when we visited the King and Prince Resort.  From the food to the Spanish moss, we were hooked. And now we’ve gotten to explore another of the Golden Isles:  Jekyll Island.  Again, wow. Jekyll Island is actually

Christmas is such a hoot.  We love getting to do Christmassy, holidayish things and especially love traveling during the holidays.  We just returned from Atlanta where we were visiting family and did a few fun, special holiday activities there.  In addition to visiting the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, we also got to do some exploring in downtown Atlanta and its

The southeastern United States is a really fascinating area.  It’s got the colonial and Civil War history; it’s full of tidelands, swamps and interesting wildlife; and its own past is a varied collection of maritime lore and people.  As you stroll through the village area of St Simons Island, it’s got that quasi-Caribbean feel with the Spanish moss dripping everywhere

And our lighthouse obsession continues… On St Simons Island, the largest of Georgia’s Golden Isles, there stands a picturesque beacon just off the boardwalk.  It’s surrounded by palm trees, oaks and green grass.  It’s not too tall, but clearly breaks the skyline:  the St Simons Island Lighthouse.  You know we love to visit lighthouses for many reasons, but the attraction of
