American Village

Today we went on a field trip with our homeschool group to a place called American Village. E enjoyed it so much! She has been studying US History this year so this experience helped bring some of those things to life! They were able to see a replica of the Liberty Bell, visit the Oval Office, tour Mount Vernon, see the Ford Theater, and much, much more.

Although I did not go on the tour with E, I did walk around the grounds. The buildings were absolutely beautiful!

Mount Vernon

Our group took the Liberty tour - those who went on the tour said it was well worth the $8 fee and the several hour trip to get there!

Don't they look so cute hiding under the Liberty Bell???

When the kids were much younger we made a trip to Washington DC and saw some of the places your children went to. I think it was one of their favorite trips. I know it was one of mine!
