Homeschool Field Trip
Or: Why I Need to Take Someone’s Photos at Monticello
So, yesterday we went on another homeschool field trip. I love going places as a big group of homeschoolers, because we get the funniest stares/questions. It must be weird for others to see so many kids of different ages and sizes and backgrounds, roaming around the grounds of a historic houses and getting dangerously close to wreaking havoc. 🙂 Actually, it’s kind of fun and a really neat experience. All of the little kids and teenagers mingling together… It’s a lot like adulthood, in a way. Everyone is different ages and backgrounds but they all get along together just fine.
Anyway, yesterday we went to Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. It was probably one of the most gorgeous places I’ve ever been. (Yes, counting Bermuda!) The trees were all bright and beautiful, and the air was crisp and cool.
Which leads me to the conclusion that I simply MUST take someone’s family portraits at Monticello. Not that I can convince anyone to take the long car ride and pay the entrance fee, but I simply have to try. 🙂
This last one is of Chelsea. Doesn’t really quite fit with the rest, but it was by far my favorite photo of the day. Just goes to prove how perfect Monticello would be for portraits…
