Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
Out of all of the things that I’d like to do with my kids this summer, I can’t think of a better one than sightseeing. It would get them out of the house, and it would be a much better alternative than some of the other things that kids commonly do during the summer months. And since both of my sons happen to be fairly visual learners, I feel that they will get a lot out of this. And although these tours, the Old Town Trolley tours, are only offered in Boston, Savannah and Washington, DC at the moment, that doesn’t make them any less enriching of an experience. It just means that whenever we use the nearest old town trolley coupon and go on one of these, the boys will get the added experience of being able to travel out of their home state while they get the educational experience of a lifetime. It can’t get much better than that.
It would then just be a matter of deciding which location to go to, and whether we should use the old town trolley tour dc coupon code or the boston trolley coupon code. Personally, I’m all for going to the nearest one geographically. It gets extra points if the area in question is incredibly easy to navigate upon us getting there, because I am not the best in the world at reading a map or “gauging” things aside from the bare bone basics. It’s just not a specialty or talent of mine, and I strongly suspect that it will never be, even as I continue to get older and have more life experiences of my own. Those are the breaks.
There are also museums that can be gone to over the summer! Once I get my two-year-old son to be quiet enough to be tolerable in a museum for the length of time that all of us are in there, that’s something else that I would like to do each subsequent summer. I can already see my oldest son enjoying the experience. Then again, he’s just that kind of kid to begin with, I think.
That post has succeeded in making me feel old… at the age of twenty-seven.
And there is this incredibly insightful post and video, which I couldn’t resist sharing here as well. It’s surprisingly true. Every single bit is. And isn’t that the sad thing? Even though I’m nowhere near as economically minded as I am scientifically minded, not being the best in the world at higher mathematics, I can see that. With any luck, the general direction that we as Americans are fiscally going in will change in the coming years, especially as the economy continues to turn itself around, slowly but surely. Then again, as stated towards the beginning of this paragraph, I make absolutely no claims about the economy or being economically savvy. Those two things will never happen.
