Most public school kids visit the State Capitol in the 4th grade. I never had an actual tour of the building, but our band played on the steps outside. I found the building beautiful and the history surrounding it very interesting.
This trip was organized thanks to my friend, Krista the blond on the left of me.
|A visit to the governors office. He was not in that day.|
|A majority of these kids are homeschoolers. Elliot's friend Royce in the yellow, is Krista's son. Jane was very glad her friends, twins Emma and Sophia (the older girls to her left) were there that day. They are friends from AHG.|
|Future Governor of Michigan?|
|One of these kids is doing his own thing. I didn't catch him in time and this is the best photo I have.|
|Getting the best view of the dome.|
|This floor is original 1878. When you are walking around on the floor below, you can see the feet above.|
|Our photo with Dick Posthumus. He was a senator many years before becoming Lieutenant Governor. He now serves as an advisor to the current Michigan Governor, Rick Snyder. He is also Lisa's dad.|
|The silly picture: The twins trying to eat Jane's head. Elliot making a nice face during the silly picture time. |
There are other museums to visit in Lansing and I hope we get a chance to visit them another day and to visit the Capitol again.
