Once upon a time, there was a homeschool mom who wished to take her two kids to a local museum. Despite the museum admission being free, it was only open to tour groups. Since mom and her two kids only totaled three, access to the museum was temporarily unavailable. Since no personal friends were able to help assist by tagging along, an idea was born. Build a free, public resource that advertised field trips to other interested parties and tour together as a group. Field Trips R Us Homeschooling officially launched on Facebook on Feb 12, 2013 and was geared to be a resource that traveled as a group instead of a group with membership.
