Gas prices are high. Restaurant prices are ridiculous. Let’s not even talk about planes, hotels, and most “vacation” attractions. Most homeschool families are surviving on one income. Couple that with the crazy cost of everything just mentioned and many families are choosing to stay closer to home during vacation season.
But, does that mean you can’t have a vacation at all? We think not! This year, why not take a few days and enjoy a staycation! A few of members of the Schoolhouse Review Crew are here to share some ideas with you about how you can stay close to home and still enjoy some family vacation time!
