Thankful Moments ~ Through Their Eyes
Thankful Moments ~ Day 6
Favorite Moment: Spending the day at the State Capitol with the fourth grade class was quite an experience. Aside from the generalized feeling of herding cats, I was impressed at how interested they all were. This is the first field trip where camera devices were encouraged, and I was struck at how different their experiences in this digital age were than mine as a kid. They all had smart devices, dsi's or cameras and were taking pictures non-stop through the tour.
Our State Capital is truly a gorgeous building, it reminds me of some palaces that I went through in Europe. As a transplant to Wisconsin, I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing a state history lesson with Charles on this election day.
Food for Thought: "Most of us are creatures so comforted by habit, in can take something on the order of religion to invoke new, more conscious behaviors---however glad that we may be afterward that we went to the trouble." Barbara Kingsolver--Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
Sidney's Slant: "My boredom is building up in me like a fiery chasm of doom." Yep, not at all a writer in training!
Song of the Day: Hard Headed Woman ~ Cat Stevens
