I’ve been going to bed at like 6 o’clock, so there hasn’t been much time for blogging.
Wednesday we went on our 4th grade field trip to the state capitol building in Austin, TX!
I don’t know why I chose a night shot, but it is a lovely picture.
It was a truly fun experience! My class was great (we left the difficult one at school…) and the weather was beautiful.
I had a group of 6 boys to keep up with. Here is one of my favorite quotes from the day.
Boy 1: Wow, look at all that paperwork! (They were looking in an office window)
Boy 2: Yeah, I never want to work at a place like this. I’d always have lots of work to do.
Me: Umm, no matter where you work you’ll probably always have lots of work to do.
Boy 2: Oh
One interesting part of our capitol tour included a joke about an early Texas governor named Jim Hogg who named his daughter….wait for it
Poor Ima. She looks quite lovely actually…A bit sad though. I’d be sad too if every 45 minutes, Monday-Friday some 20 year old Austin political wanna be gave a tour and made a joke about my name.
What the tour guide failed to mention was that Ima was quite the philanthropist and art collector and did many wonderful things in Texas (I had to google her of course). She also failed to mention that legend formed she had a sister named Ura and that a Kansas City newspaper added a 3rd fictional sister named Hoosa. LOL Apparently she only had 3 brothers.
So my friends, let this be a lesson to you when naming your children or choosing a spouse. Names do matter.
