I've seen this article going around, and I am so tempted to re-share it on Facebook. But since I am still semi- in the closet regarding my heathen status there, and this is my space to say and share whatever I want... it's going here. It's a great article about a study on how secular family values compare to those in religious families. Maybe I will yet get up the nerve to share it elsewhere...

The same day that we visited the Lake County History Center, we spent the afternoon at a second field trip - at the Fairport Harbor Marine Museum and Lighthouse. Until I saw both of these field trips posted by Kim of Kim's Ohio Homeschooling Events, I had no idea there were any local lighthouses available for touring. I knew the kids would dig it.
First, we stopped for lunch and to play a bit at the beach, before walking up to the lighthouse.
