Upper Peninsula Adventures

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer thus far.  It seems to be going by pretty quickly.  It’s bittersweet on our end as we love summer fun, yet I always look forward to schedules and routines by the beginning of August.

This week my hubby and I are taking our girls on a Michigan homeschool adventure through the upper peninsula.  We would like for them to see the Tahquamenon Falls (upper and lower).  I need to dig up their Michigan Kids Passports so they can begin filling in all of the places they have visited in Michigan.

We will be exploring and relaxing at our up-north stomping grounds at the cabin.  Then heading up to Mackinac.  We are not sure if we will do the island this time around.  We are taking the girls over the bridge.  For two of the girls, it will be the very first time.  They are so excited.  We plan on staying the night in Mackinac City and then whatever other adventures pop up.  We are so excited as we just love exploring our state.

I was hoping to take them over to Sleeping Bear Dunes maybe on the way home.  I remember my parents taking my brother and I and we would do those dune buggy tours.  Those were so fun.  I would love my girls to experience that as well.  They haven’t played in Lake Michigan, so that will be another event to add to their Michigan Kids Passports.

When they get older we will be taking them to the Mackinac Fort and all of those more detailed historical places.

Sweet Pea (10) loves history so this will be an exciting time for her.  Cup Cake (6.5) and Jelly Bean (4) will enjoy the sights and the activity.  Can’t wait to take pictures of their adventures.  I will post them as soon as we return from our trip.

What adventures are you taking with your family this summer?

Happy Homeschooling!
