But there were always some educational elements thrown in that made us kids whine and complain. “Why can’t we just go to Disney World like a normal family and leave it at that?” We’d lament. “Why do we have to stop at every historical landmark and tour every museums?” We spent days driving around the battlegrounds of Gettysburg, touring Kennedy Space Center, watching Cheese being made in Vermont, and studying animal life at Yellowstone. As much as we complained, we liked it. My parents had a love for history, and we were homeschoolers, so that’s what we did!
