Where shall we go?

Chug along, Sing a Song, and make some NOISE !   GO on a REAL train ride pulled by a REAL Steam Engine in Central Florida.   The Our Time classes are having so much fun with TRAINS in class and at home.  I just thought I’d share some opportunties for REAL EXPERIENCES in our area.  If you know of more, please SHARE with us through your comments.
