If you are noticing your inbox is cluttered with a few more “Odyssey Through Nebraska” posts, you just might be right. For one thing, school is out. Our homeschool does take a bit of a break for the summer. (Although plenty of learning is still taking place, but please don’t tell my kids that!) The other main reason: there is SO much going on around this state for the next several months. (Look for a “Tuesday Travel Tips” post next week addressing how our family decides which activities we should complete and where we should go).
I want to do my best to keep you informed and aware of all of the many options across the fair state of Nebraska. And here is my plan, although I will need your help to be successful. More on that shortly!
THE ODYSSEY THROUGH NEBRASKA BLOG: Yep, what you are reading right now. I plan on continuing to have Wordless Wednesdays features, along with explanations on Thursdays. I am sure that I will be sharing some more “Tuesday Travel Tips” and “Friday Photography” posts again. Having put aside my blog “history lessons” for a few months due to teaching history at home, I also hope to do several “Flashback Fridays.” While occasionally I feature upcoming events (such as the The Lincoln Children’s Museum “Shining Stars” event or upcoming children’s theater events), for the most part I share where we have been. Our previous locations that I hope will become your upcoming destinations.
ODYSSEY THROUGH NEBRASKA FACEBOOK PAGE This is the best way that I can inform you as to what is happening across the state. Being able to post upcoming events of fun things happening across the state is the one way that I can keep in touch with many events. I could not possibly blog about them all. Nor could I attend them all. But hopefully if you are close enough, you will be able to enjoy a Nebraska family outing. THIS IS WHERE I NEED YOUR HELP: have an event that is happening near you? Please post it on the Facebook page. I will miss many fun opportunities that I am hoping you will help me catch. Please share the fun with your fellow Nebraskans.
NEBRASKA ODYSSEY ON TWITTER After being a bit skeptical at first, I did come around to being a “Tweeter.” And I almost like it. Brevity is a good challenge. So, here is where I share bits when we are out and about. Or I retweet really cool Nebraska pictures. Or even better, thoughts from really cool Nebraskans.
Tweeted picture – the view of the storms near our house. (That is White Hall in the background, not our house 🙂 )
Follow me. Peek in on me. Hopefully I will eventually create buttons to make it easier for you to do that, but for now you can simply click on any of these links to become an official follower of the blog, Facebook or Twitter . We will often be out and about this summer. Although sometimes I hope to be enjoying the moment and not glued to my phone. After all, I am traveling to experience and to make memories with my family. Hope to see you along the way!
P.S. Speaking of memories … we are just a few weeks away from my one year “blogiversary.” (I am just beginning to work on organizing some fun give-aways!) In honor of this, tomorrow’s “Wordless Wednesday” will be a fun collaboration. A scavenger hunt full of pictures from many places that we have been. Your challenge is to find the connection between the places! On Thursday, I will tell you how the pictures work together. This is partially inspired by a recent creative post over at Family Fun in Omaha. If you have ever been to Omaha, I highly suggest that you “visit” the 20 places in her Omaha Scavenger Hunt and see how many you can identify!
