A Child's Perspective

I decided to invite a special guest to post on my blog today.  I may have a guest posting from time to time but I am especially proud of this one.  
Nathan recently spent a day with Peter at the Arizona State Capitol learning what his dad really does all day.  Here is his report:

My Day at the Arizona
State Capitol

First, Dad and I drove to the capitol.  We listened to music while we were driving.  
When I got there, I met the security guard.  Next, we had a meeting with Mr. Court.  We saw things that his dad carved like an elephant cane.  After that, we had some coffee and I did some school work.  

Then, we had a meeting with the Speaker at 11:00. 

 Then, I had a good lunch with Dad at a Vietnamese restaurant.  
 After lunch, Dad made some calls and I did more school work.  
Then, we watched the caucus on a little TV in his office.  Then, I met Mr. Victor, Dad's boss.  After this, I added some papers to my book that the Speaker gave me.  The last thing we did was another meeting.  I had fun.

Who knew that being Counsel for the Majority could be so easy..haha.  I really love the child's viewpoint.  He was way more interested in the carved items in an office than the conversation that took place.

Writing an article is a great follow-up to any field-trip.  They really love to pretend to be reporters, jot down notes and take pictures, and then write a news story about their day...or what really goes on in the capitol...haha.


  1. Hi Allison, I found your blog through Peter's facebook. We were in the same homeschool group in the early 80's! It's fun to see where life has taken everyone...your family is beautiful! I've enjoyed your blog...adding it to my reader. :)
