On Sunday, September 11th, we headed up to our hometown of Pittsburgh with our Australian Flat Friend. We camped at Raccoon Creek State Park and visited family, the Children's Museum and the Carnegie Science Center.
It is always fun to visit home! Check out the Australia link for more pictures. I will be adding picture books, non-fiction books and movie choices to the page when we begin to study the Australian continent. Our Australian flat friend will be departing from Maryland soon to head back to South Australia. We wish him a good journey home and hope the kids like the postcards and things we included in our letter.
PS: When we arrived home from Pittsburgh, we found two new Flat Friends had found their way to our mailbox. While they don't come from as far as Australia, they do come from the other side of our own country - California. We will be adding pictures of them soon and will post our adventures to the North America page.

Visiting the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal with our Australian Flat Friend! On Friday, September 2nd, we visited the C&O Canal National Park in Williamsport. The kids had fun pointing out the number of turtles we saw while walking along the canal towpath. We also completed some of the activities for the Junior Ranger Program, though it will take more than one visit to finish it. This part of the C&O Canal is about 20 minutes east of us, but the Canal is less than a mile from where we live.
