Capitol Visit....

We went to the capitol for a field trip. It was also the Annual Home Educators' Day at the Capitol. So there were lots of other homeschoolers there also.

This is before we went into the Capitol!!!!

Everyone brought pies for the legislators. My mom wanted me to take a pic of them. I took lots but all of them turned out blurry! Sorry!!!!

Uncle Paul asked Mom and Aunty Charity if they wanted a picture and they wanted one. Here it is. We were in the Rotunda waiting for some legislators to talk to us.

Different people did different things. This is one of the guys that spoke.

After the guy was done speaking, they said a little prayer for him. We were surprised that many of the legislators that spoke to us really believed in God.

This lady sang "America the beautiful".

Some other homeschooler lady asked us if we wanted a pic. We didn't say yes but the moms did.

Some of us girls.

These are the fancy fancy fancy doors.

Mom got this some time. She got it out the back doors of the capitol.

This is the really big light. It holds 200 light bulbs. They change the light bulbs every 10 years. A full size VW bug can fit inside this chandelier.

I think this is inside the Senate.

This one is too.

This was in Rep Ed Orcut's room after we were done meeting with him.

It was a very fun day! And we were all glad to go! ~Alexa
