Just we girls visited a local site. I had not been there in a while, but we enjoyed the scenery and pleasant weather.
Since Jack and I just wrapped up learning about the Civil War this month, Appomattox was a great place to visit. It was incredible just to be in the same place, the same house, the same road, as all those soldiers, Lee, and Grant. I stepped inside the McLean House where the surrender was signed and walked the same halls as they. It was kind of surreal. These were my Iphone photos, so the quality is a little less.
The grounds were breathtaking. I could live there. The big kids had fun exploring, and the little ones stayed close by.
On another day, the older kids headed out on a hike. We did not take our girls, so Leanna took all of the following pictures. As much as I would like to take credit for her creative work, I won't.
