Catchin' a little shut-eye
Last week I posted The Great College Tour 2010, in which I wrote about the first stop on our tour, Grove City College in Grove City, PA. We spent the following day in Harper's Ferry, WV, and then drove to Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, VA. Soren, Gpa and Gma found acorns to gather while Anna and Dad took the tour of the college.
General Longstreet's in-laws were from Lynchburg, just in case anyone wanted to know. I talked to one of our daughters by phone while traveling through the mountains of Virginia and told her that Virginia's slogan shouldn't be 'Virginia is for lovers,' but 'Virginia is for Photographers.' She said it lacked a ring to it. Besides, Virginia doesn't have any place to pull off the road to actually take a photo on those mountain views, so you just have to take my word for it.
no pun intended.

(which I will never ever stay in again!) And just for Soren, I'm posting here the pic of 'The Ghost Train,' as he called it, from Harper's Ferry, which I neglected to include in my Harper's Ferry blog post.
Anna came home with impressions of four colleges to ponder, and Soren came home with the story of John Brown ('He's at Hoppa Fehwee but he's dead. I kiwd him.') firmly entrenched in his mind along with Georgie Porgie, Little Boy Blue, and She'll be Comin' Roun' the Mountain When She Comes - Yee-Haw!
I wish you could have heard his daddy's rendition of The Three Little Pigs. I tried to talk him into video-recording it for YouTube with his little sons helping him. It was hilarious!
It was a great week! We will have very fond memories of the Great College Tour of 2010 :-)
