Homeschool Mom Field Trip

What's a homeschool mom to do when she gets a day away from her darling students? 

Hang out at the spa?

Shop at the mall?

Look at men in kilts?

Nope, She visits a museum!

Last week I got to visit the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, CA. 

With some gal pals---some brand-new and some old and dear.

Your cute baby could one day grow up to be the President of the United States of the America!

I knew I was saving all those swim team ribbons for something!  Perhaps, one day they will be behind glass in a museum.

What ever one thinks about Reagan's politics, one must admit he was a master of rhetoric.

My friend, Polly, fielding some of those hard questions from the press with her usual humor.

Mrs. Reagan's famous red dress.

I thought this picture was just so sweet.   It just speaks volumes of their affection for each other.

Wise words which sat on Ronald Reagan's desk.

One of my favorite pieces of art--composed entirely of jellybellies.

One of the highlights of our visit was a tour of Air Force I.

It was amazing how much was fit inside the plane. 

And Ronald Reagan made sure never to travel without cake--

I think that if I'm ever in charge of Air Force I I'll follow his example.

After touring the musem and enjoying a yummy lunch,

we enjoyed the beautiful grounds.

We were also able to see a portion of the famous Berlin Wall

The East Side

The West Side.

And that my dear readers is what a homeschool mom does on her day off.
