Well, we managed to make our Spring break trip an educational one by making a side trip to the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site in La Porte, Texas. Of course, our Social Studies lover 5th grader was ecstatic!

The monument is awesome, the museum is definitely very historic for us who are new to Texas, and the battleship was mesmerizing. It was worth the side trip definitely as my daughter had a lot to tell in her class when school resumed after a week of break.

I love family travels for pleasure and for educational purposes as well. As learners, there is always something to discover and enjoy at the same time learn all with the expense of time and money. But like I have said, it is worth it in the end.
