Our Story

Welcome to our site! We are Joanne & Steve. After 20+ years working for a city school department and police department, we sold almost everything, bought an RV, and started living on the road with our three children. Joanne homeschools and works online.
What we have chosen is to live life as unencumbered as we possibly can and to spend time with our family, for our family, and as a family.
This website is a record of our travels. But, we also hope to educate, entertain, and inform others about RVing, roadschooling, and the great places we visit in this country.

In early December, we visited LegoLand Florida.  I have to say, awesome place!  We originally were going to head there in late November but realized they had Homeschool Days at a fraction of the price...$8 for each student and $25 per adult.   We saved over $90 for the 6 people that went.  They do require home school verification of some sort.

Now, if you do not homeschool, you still will enjoy a LegoLand visit and there are plenty of coupons out there to save money.  Life Cereal as well as Lego Magazine, and sources online, give coupons for one free child per adult.  Adults are $64, children are $59 (online).  So, if you have the coupons, which you WILL find, you are really only paying for the adults and any extra children.

It's a great park.  Very clean.  And, here's a tip...get there at least 20 minutes or so before the park opens.  Get right in line.  Have your kid(s) charm the turnstile-ladies and maybe, just maybe, your children will get chosen to open the park.  A thrill for them, free lunch for 4 and a free picture for you.

At the very least, there are some fun rides, and some really awesome Lego sculptures.

But, one thing you HAVE to plan for, that we didn't save enough time for, is the Lego Imagination Center, most importantly the Lego Build & Test.  Here, kids play with Legos to create wheeled structures and then test them on various types of ramps.  This activity coincides with STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

Besides this activity, you can also sign your children up for a science lesson with Legos. Right there at the Imagination Center.  Worth it.  Look into it.
