The trip began with a meeting
with Rep. Raymond Walker in Nashville.
Rep. Walker escorted us to the
House of Representatives.
Some of the parents and students
sat in the balcony above the House Floor.
While some were getting their seats
others were getting their instructions for 'paging'.
As Representatives began to fill the house floor
the 'pages' were getting their final instructions on how to serve the legislators.
After a long hard day at the Capitol
the parents rest and talk while the kids...
have fun and play in the pool.
Even the little ones
joined in on the fun.
Some of the group even demonstrated a few
unique ways to enter the pool simultaneously!
After a great time at the pool
some of us decided to check out the gym.
After a good nights rest
it was time for our big day at the Capitol.
We always take plenty of dads on the trip
to keep the little boys in line...
and the big boys too!
Time to visit Sen. Jerry Cooper and find out
how busy the life of a legislator can be if you want to be a servant of the people.
Our final stop was to visit Rep. Bill Harmon
to promote Home Education in Tennessee!
Two of the younger kids get their picture taken
while they wait on the rest of the group!
Some of us had our picture taken
outside the Capitol after our big day was complete!
A few kids discovered a Korean War Memorial
Dylan even decided he was a
fallen soldier from the war.
Families enjoyed their time together.
Students read the many names
on the memorial bricks!
