If only the walls could talk

If only the walls could talk

We have been inspired by a few things this summer and encouraged to do a tour of local museums with our family.  We are a military family who have been posted all over the country and we are learning so much about our country as we travel.  This year we are learning more about our history from the locals!  We wanted to let you all know about it too in case you would like to take part.

This is our schedule that suits us for the summer, feel free to join in with us on all or some of the visits, or just take the list and go on an adventure of your own!  Happy exploring!

Also, we found out while we were planning that there is an event happening over the next 2.5 years that goes along side this perfectly.  Check it out, there are also prizes to be won.
