Hi, we’re the Tabatt family and we’re going our our first Homeschool Road Trip. Now before I get too far ahead of myself, let me take a minute to introduce the family. My wife and I are the blessed parents of seven wonderful children. Here’s a recent picture of the family all dressed in our Sunday best.
As you might have guessed from the title of this blog post and the stereotypical big white van in the logo, we educate our children at home. One of the joys of homeschooling is taking advantage of the opportunities you have to take your kids on new and exciting adventures that will not only advance their education, but also grow their faith. Museums are a favorite destination of ours, but we are often quickly frustrated by the evolution-centric views touted by so many of the exhibits. One museum that we have been eager to visit that takes a very different approach is the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY.
The Creation Museum is the brainchild of Ken Ham, President / CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis. Spread out over an astounding 70 acres, this 75,000 square foot museum offers numerous exhibits, a zoo, gardens, a planetarium, and multiple video presentations. Here’s one of the original promotional videos that was put out when the museum first opened back in 2007:
There’s a lot to see at the Creation Museum, so we want to do our best to equip the entire family to make the most of this experience. In that regard, our family will be working through several resources from Master Books in the days leading up to our visit to the Museum. The resources are:
As we finish each of these resources, we will share a review here at the Bible Geek Gone Wild blog. We hope you’ll stop back often during the next couple of weeks to follow our progress as we prepare for our trip and to share in the many videos and pictures we’ll be posting from our time at the Creation Museum.
