Welcome back to another week of Creative Learning on Friday. We had a wonderful day trip to Mount Vernon. The interpretive center is very well done with interactive exhibits as well as artifacts. And the estate itself is very well preserved with helpful, knowledgable guides and volunteers throughout the area. Of course the children especially connected well with the first-person interpreters. We look forward to many more field trips of this kind.

Washington's carriage was very similar.
Can you imagine him riding through the streets of Philadelphia?
