In the fourth grade students are required to put together a state notebook, and since we live so close to the state's capital - we take opportunity to hop down there and take pictures and have a type of field trip. We have made this same trip before with Isaac. It never gets old. That place is beautiful and breathtaking. All of the inside is marble, and simply amazing. To walk through the senate chamber and see where important state decisions are made - is awesome. It reminds me of the importance of participating in the simple act of voting - there is such a responsibility in participating in even the simple ways, when so much affects us. There is also a very old piano located within the capitol that both boys have been able to play hymns on. That brought tears to my eyes. This particular day we also took opportunity to apostille our adoption dossier and have lunch on the capitol grounds. It was a fun day. There are two more random pics on the bottom. Ellie and Chloe's birthdays are coming up, and we allowed each to have a bunny. So adorable! Then I also included a sweet picture of Justus. He is doing well, and we are looking forward in participating in the Buddy Walk this weekend.
Have a beautiful day!
Squirrel and her pet lady. This is a "wild" squirrel that lives on the grounds. Ummmm ... I don't care HOW tame it is - I watched "Old Yeller" and won't come close to petting that critter!
