These first pics are from “Legislative Day” when homeschoolers from Illinois travel to the capital to visit their legislators and take them homemade cherry pies, encourage them to vote in favor of homeschooling, and gather to sing on the steps in front of Abe Lincoln, etc. It was so much fun! I used to go back when I was a homeschool kid, but this was the first time I had taken the next generation.
And we made it to visit my other Grandma Jean and Grandpa Albert as well. I interviewed Grandma Jean, as I had done last year with Grandma Nita and Grandpa Howard, and was able to video tape it as well. I just loved hearing her tell about the “olden days” and other aspects of family history.
This is only a tiny percentage of all that we have been up to lately, which is why it’s been so hard to find time to blog about it! I will try to keep up better now. 🙂
