11 Spectacular Things to Do in Page AZ

If you are like most people, you probably have no clue what or where Page, AZ is. As I recount our recent road trip through Arizona and Utah all I see are blank stares when I get to our time in Page. Turns out most people have never heard of this adorable little town in Northern Arizona. It’s not too surprising considering Page is a small town (Pop. less than 8,000) sitting on the edge of Navajo Nation and Lake Powell a few miles from the border of Utah. The few travelers who have heard of it, know it as only the place they drive through on their way to/from the Grand Canyon and/or as quick stop over point to view Horseshoe Bend.

Adventures in Homeschooling

Since the inception of this blog, I really haven’t written much here except for travel or local adventures. However, as we venture into homeschooling (again), I want to share my frustrations, triumphs and finds with others who might be considering this or who find themselves in this situation due to the current environment. I find that often travel and homeschool go hand in hand. Those of us who love travel, tend to also want to know if homeschool is an option for our children too.
