Impromptu Civics Lesson

This year the kids are memorizing all of the states and capitols. I have talked to them about how a capitol is the center of government for the state and it is where all of the state's laws are debated and enacted. After having lunch with Kevin on Friday--something we try to do at least once a month--we walked over to the State House to show them around.

Meredith, at the Court of Appeals. While I think that Meredith will be a businesswoman/artist (my prediction at this point!), she also is intrigued by law.

Clara takes in the beautiful interior of the capitol building.

Checking out the state assembly. The kids enjoying seeing the buttons on the desks and hearing about how the laws are debated and voted on.

A good day!

This is precisely why we homeschool, isn't it? Less time on useless repetition and keeping order, and more on actually learning stuff.
