George Washington’s Mount Vernon

I went along as a chaperone on Bear’s fifth grade field trip to Washington D.C. One of the stops was at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon and this photo brings all those memories back. The endless hours on a tour bus. A surprising bitter cold snap when we reached Virginia. The sight of a gaggle of girls circling up to compare notes on cute boys.

I’m sure we heard some facts about George Washington during this tour but my favorite memories from that trip are of watching Bear be Bear.
