In May we were so happy to go on a family vacation to Omaha, Nebraska. It’s been years since we’ve been on vacation! It was such a busy time with our 20th wedding anniversary and graduation for Chocolate Taffy, but it all worked out really well.
One significant thing we did while in Nebraska was visit one of the college’s that Chocolate is interested in going to: University of Nebraska, Lincoln. It was fascinating to get a tour of the school and talk over things with the head of the Engineering Department. One of the things we learned is that not many of the college credits Chocolate earned during high school were needed for his Engineering Degree. That didn’t discourage Chocolate and I too much. He still needed foreign language and English Comp. for high school and he did get a good two years of learning how to deal with a college level work load.
Another fun thing we did while in Nebraska was visit their world famous Henry Doorly Zoo. I had heard plenty of testimony's of the awesomeness of this zoo, we had to check it out. It was INCREDIBLE!
It was incredibly hand’s on. There weren’t little computer everywhere to play with. We got to experience the habitats and in some exhibits experience the animals.
There were so many hidden treasures in this zoo. Bats were flying around freely. Birds too. There were rivers to cross and rocks to balance on.
The kids could buy food to feed the Koi. There were hundreds if not thousands of them. Amazing sight to behold!
Besides all the wonderful encouragement of going to a Homeschool Conference we also learned about something very exciting. But I’ll save that for another post. (Gotta love a cliff hanger…)
