The $150 Vacation

So, it's Spring Break around here, for those who have something to take a break from. As unschoolers, living life without school, what that means for us is that loads of our friends are out of town and we don't have art class or Ballet or Karate this week. We couldn't really afford to take a vacation, and we're going out of town in few weeks anyway, so I proposed an "in-town" vacation.

I figured out we had $150 bucks to spend and we brainstormed a whole bunch of fun stuff we could do within walking, biking, or bus-riding distance. Here's what our week looks like:

Monday: Bowling and lunch out. Movie night at home.
Tuesday: A swim at the Hotsprings and a night housesitting for a neighbor in her big, fancy house complete with sauna, hot tub, fireplace, and very large comfy couches perfect for reading on. Had pizza delivered for dinner...yum!
Wednesday: Went out for breakfast, splurged on hot cocoas with extra whipped cream.
Thursday: A trip to our favorite ice cream parlor and a shopping spree at Goodwill (everybody gets $6 to spend, whoo-hoo).
Friday: A trip to ScienceWorks, our local hands-on science museum.

Not bad, huh?
