If its a scheduled day of errands, we only bring school with us if we will be sitting in waiting rooms. But for those unscheduled trips to hospital or clinic, I have my back up plans... Lapbooks I keep in my van specifically for this. Its often "bonus" work, stuff they want to do, and can do independently. We recently did one on space where the kids could "build" the solar system in the van. I also have educational CDs i keep in my van that they love. Plus we keep chalk, chalkboard, sponge pieces, and water in the van for writing and drawing practice. If we will be going to a doctor in LA, i plan field trips instead... Art museums, zoo, science.center, etc... That way they have somrthing to look forward to. Our next LA trip will bring us to the La Brea Tar Pits.
