Surrounded

One of my very favorite things about living in Virginia is the beautiful historical places all around.  There's an endless amount of learning to be done. One of the most special and amazing places in my opinion is Mt. Vernon.  It was the home of George and Martha Washington for some time and its just beautiful. The setting is gorgeous. A week ago I took the kids there for a field trip. We're studying US History and we're reading the entire Little House series. It was a really good decision to go visit Mt. Vernon last week.

It was windy!!! The kids are about 150 yards away from the house.
