The "50/12 Project" for the children
This summer we are planning to start "The 50/12 Project"? What is this? Glad you asked. We are planning to take the children to see all fifty states in the next twelve years, hence the 50/12 project.
As a child I did not get to go many places outside of the DMV (DC Maryland Virgina) area, as an adult I did not either. So the way I see it, it would be a great idea to let the children see America. As a homeschooling mom, I think it would be pretty cool to see some of the places we talk about in history and geography.
Our plan is to hit the states closest to us (northeast)first, this summer. This will include Maryland, Pennsylvania and New York. Every summer and Christmas vacation we will visit different states for the next twelve years, this should ensure that when our little ones turn eighteen years old they will have visited all 50 states. Hopefully we will be able to visit a main attraction, take plenty of pictures and bring back information to share.
We are very excited about this endeavor and plan to keep you posted on the progress. Now we just have to wait to get our RV out of the shop and back on the road. We have borrowed dvd's about all of the northeast states, this will be a warm-up before the real thing. Also I'm starting to point out the eastern states on our pin up map, they really like this!
So join us on our journey as we visit all 50 states in 12 years! The 50/12 Project.
