Field trips are fun.

Today I got toIt was my first time there. I sure am glad I got to spend it with 9 13 year olds!

They were more interested in their worksheets than actually seeing the sites. I finally forced them out of the visitors center and we headed to the Mansion.Don't worry. They continued working on their worksheets while we waited in line.
And their highlight was standing on the path's brick ledge.
I thoroughly enjoyed the back porch with the fabulous view! One day...And this really cool looking tree...A trip to Mount Vernon wouldn't be complete without playing
Corn on the Cob Toss with the locals...and a trip to the gift shop for a magnet to add to my collection.I will have to go back again someday as that is pretty much all I got to see.
But it was a great day.

That looks like so much fun! I'm jealous you get to experience all of this stuff. I can't remember the last time I left the state, oh, except for an occassional trip to North Idaho! I need to get out!
