I’m forever being asked questions about homeschooling, but recently I was asked one of the toughest questions anyone has asked me:
What has been your favorite field trip?
This is tough question, because we have been blessed to take many, many field trips over the past few years.
But when I asked Ben, he knew immediately which field trip I should tell you about. Because my husband is a federal employee, we have been able to travel to Washington DC on multiple occasions. Every time we go, there are 2 places we always visit: The Museum of Air and Space and Arlington National Cemetery.
Truth be told, Air and Space is probably Ben’s favorite, but since the question was asked of me, not him, I’m going to take you on a tour of my favorite place, Arlington National Cemetery. These particular pictures were taken nearly 2 years ago.
Our first stop was at the Kennedy gravesite and the Eternal Flame….buried here are JFK, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and 2 of their children who died in childhood. Not far from the Eternal Flame are the simple gravesites of Robert Kennedy and Ted Kennedy, both marked with plain white gravestones and white wooden crosses.
