We sleep over night at the Freedom Foundation. We are up early for breakfast and on the bus to Philadelphia by 8:00. We have the students in line to see the Liberty Bell before it opens at 9:00.
Then we get them back to the Constitute Museum for the production of We the People. I love that presentation. I have yet to see it without getting chills. It ends by the guy asking, "What will you do with the freedom you have been given." When you watch the news you always wonder if we are on a crash coarse to losing that freedom. I really enjoy that museum. It has so many great interactive things. They also have an original Bill of Rights. From there we go to Constitution Hall where the signers of the Constitution battled out our Constitution which governs us today.
After this we allow the student to break up and go see what they want to see. Some like to go to the steps where the Rocky show has him running up the stairs. The new Philadelphia temple is there as well as Benjamin Franklin's grave, Christ's Church, and other great historic sites. But you can't start until you go to Jim's and get a steak Philly sandwich.
|The trees are amazing. These are some of the flowers we saw yesterday.|
This morning I got up early and baked small loaves of banana bread for our neighbors for Easter. We got those delivered before going to Church. After we took a treat over to our interns for Easter. We came home and made our Easter dinner of ham and aspargus. I baked bread for lunch tomorrow when we teach. We will have peanut butter sandwiches. I hadn't even started on my lesson for Monday so I tried to pull that together. The best part of the day was talking to most of our grandchildren. We couldn't get Justin's family.
|The trees looked so beautiful around the ward house today.|
|Our little banana breads.|
|Bread for class tomorrow and hopefully Tuesday.|
