I do, all the time, and you’ll see why I asked this question, as you read on, but I’m going to interrupt that story for another. Our family is currently on the ultimate homeschool history field trip ever, and one of my favorite places to be. Can you guess where it is?
If you guessed Colonial Williamsburg, you’d be right. We’re having a blast learning about all sorts of things. As I looked over my pictures from the first two days, I’ve noticed a large number of pictures of Princess, which makes sense, because I’m pushing her around in a wheelchair because of her broken leg. So, she’s always right there as I take pictures.
Several more of Batman, because he’s been super excited and getting involved, and very few of Superman. But, we haven’t hit the particular areas he’s been super excited by.
I also noticed I have exactly two pictures of myself on this trip so far. Oh wait three, but one of those was an “Oops, I took the picture before you’re ready” picture, so it doesn’t really count. I must remedy that soon.
My poor kids have also gotten to listen to me oooohhhhh, and ahhhhhhh over the pretty fabrics, and an amazing museum display where I got to see inside the usually locked drawers. It’s super cool. I’ve also taken tons of reference pictures for a few projects I’m working on that are somewhat on the back burner right now.
But, I’m mainly writing this because I had this big theory of writing a few things and posting from the hotel at night. However, I’ve discovered the internet here is HORRIBLE, and I mainly spend my time complaining to my husband about it, and quite honestly, I’d rather spend it doing fun stuff, like talking to the interpreters about their characters, and do my best not to argue with a horribly misinformed women who kept insisting 1 in3 households owned a sewing machine in 1860s.
If you’d like to see what we’re up to, I highly encourage you to go check out my Instagram feed. I had to refrain from posting too much of the cool stuff because I didn’t want to overwhelm people’s feed with the cool stuff.
Back to that opening question, I have been struggling with that particular question these last several weeks because I yet again tried to do too many things. So, the thing falling by the wayside for this week is blogging. I have one post scheduled for Friday, I think, or maybe it’s Thursday. Well, it’s coming soon. Hopefully my next hotel will have better internet because I have two posts I want to write on this trip. You’ll have to wait with bated breath** to find out if I get that internet.
** I wonder where that phrase came from.
