I'll be honest. I went to Arlington because I wanted to see where General Lee had lived prior to the Civil War. I've always been a Civil War buff... and visiting Virginia has been high on my list as far back as I can remember. Of course, we ended up going through the area when Lee's entire home was going through some remodeling and all his furnishings were in storage, but I was thrilled to be there. The view from his front porch was astounding. His land was like heaven on earth - and it must have been hard for him to never be able to return there. Virginia was a lovely state. I'm so glad we got to drive through and linger - instead of fly right over it - when we took our trip to Relevant in Pennsylvania last October.
Hang in there and I'll be posting more about the Relevant trip once I get my photos in order (there were many days that I didn't feel like carrying my heavy camera, so my son took point-and-shoot pictures)... and once I get my groove back.

Join up for the Homeschool Post has A B See Meme (an alphabetical photo meme) for a chance to win a prize each month. Each week they put FIVE of the best alphabet pictures on their blog each week to showcase them and once a month, a random winner is selected from the best photos of the month. All you do is upload your photos to their Flickr Group - so you don't even technically have to be a blogger to join... you just have to have an alphabetical themed photo and a flickr account! By the way, flickr is free!
The meme is posted on Fridays each week and you don't necessarily have to start on the letter A or go in any particular order or at any particular speed... and you can skip weeks or not - up to you entirely.
Here are the links to the past few 'A B See' posts I have done here:
A is for antique.
B is for bugging big-sis.
C is for computer.
D is for digger.
E is for eat... and Elmers.
F is for fried rice.
G is for goofy girl.
H is for Heather.
I is for insect.
J is for joy.
K is for Kreative Spelling and Killer Homeschool Deals.
L is for live music.
M is for matryoshka.
Tip: Use the dictionary to get ideas if you are stumped on a letter. No excuses! Get clicking!
You have until Friday morning (early) to load your picture on the Flickr group and be considered for the top five that will be displayed next week. A prize goes out each month to one random participant!
