Beyond outings with my kids, I’ve never set up a field trip before but in our local homeschool group the moms take turns finding interesting places to visit so I nabbed a September spot and set about looking for someplace …. well, interesting. A local metal recycling facility seemed to fit the bill. Every time we travel into the city my kids point to their big cranes as we pass, “Look, Mom, look!” So I called just to see. The worst they could do was say “no”, right? But they didn’t instead they were very enthusiastic about our coming.
