4-H Day at the State Capitol

I had the honor to take my children to Richmond, Virginia (the capitol of our fabulous state) on Tuesday, February 8th. It was 4-H day at the capitol and to say we learned a lot about the history of our great state would be a gross understatement! Not only did we learn a lot, it would not have been possible without 4-H.

Reservations were made in advance for us to tour the governor's mansion, the state capitol building and visit the state legislators in their offices! It was incredible! We even had the opportunity to sit in on the sessions! It is a day I will never forget!
