Grace and Lydia are spending the week at the capital with TeenPact.

TeenPact is designed to help students understand the political process, value their liberty, and engage the culture. Through our hands-on and practical teaching, TeenPact students learn how to embrace their call as the next generation of leaders, find encouragement among like-minded peers, and develop the skills to engage the culture.

It will be fun to hear all their stories.

Because I couldn’t trust these two hooligans to stay out of trouble while I was gone, they came with us. Chipotle is not a bad way to spend lunch.

We then went to our favorite store Midwest Mountaineering, I could buy all my clothes there, but it would cost me an arm and a leg. We did score three Patagonia swimsuits for the boys for $10 each. They got to boulder and spin the wheel for a prize. win-win

I got an amazing report form Carl that Titus and Adie were rockstars today.

On the way down to the cities, I told Jack that if he took a nap, I’d take a short cut.

“Mom, I know the ways of you adults!”
