A Note To My Happy Trails Visitors:

Welcome to my Happy Trails website. These stories, mostly about fun and educational adventures with kids, were written as a way to share field trip ideas with the homeschooling (and larger!) community. They were originally written for two Charlottesville area homeschool support group newsletters and one statewide organization, The Organization of Virginia Homeschoolers. I homeschooled my three children between 1990 and 2006. That means these articles are dated. Please understand that I keep the website available for visitors looking for inspiration and you should always check the facts as you plan your own journeys!

Happy Trails,
Mary Alissa Wilson
