Homeschool Skate

Orbit Fun Center in Lebanon, OH ( is hosting a homeschool skate the 2nd Friday of every month (November -May) from 1 PM to 3 PM. The price was right ($3 a person including skates), so we decided to check it out!

Despite the fact that I left the directions at home, we managed to find the place. If coming from 1-71 northbound, you get off at exit #28, make a right at the end of the exit ramp and follow Rt 48 until you reach the light at Monroe (the 3rd light I believe). Make a left on Monroe and follow it to the first traffic light (Columbus). Turn left on Columbus and Orbit will be on your left hand side.

Anyhow....we got there and the parking lot hadn't been plowed and the place looked deserted. Grant got out and went and knocked on all the doors and finally someone came and opened them. The heat wasn't working, but skating was ON! Only 5 families showed up so there was absolutely no crowd, the place a clean and the kids had a great time and managed to skate off some of their energy! We plan to give it another try come March (we will miss February because we will be at the Unschoolers Winter Waterpark Gathering at Kalahari the 2nd Friday in February).

Orbit also offers bowling. They have a small 12 lane alley. I am working with the owner to set up homeschool bowling the 4th Friday in February. Hopefully we can work out a reasonable rate. I know the kids would enjoy it, we haven't bowled since Will's birthday last summer!
