Capitol Days 2007

During the spring we went to four Capitol Days once a month hosted by THSC. They describe the experience like this: "THSC representatives, legislators, and legislative staff members will educate attendees about the legislative process and train them to lobby. Each month there will be different speakers and topics, depending on the current issue of concern for Texas home educators. In the afternoon, students, parents, and chaperones will head to the Capitol to meet and lobby legislators; then finally reconvene for a debriefing."

Rattlesnakes in the outdoor rotunda of the Capitol annex.

"Ain't she a beaut'! "

The fangs. Yes, the REAL fangs.

It's not every day you get a picture with a rattlesnake in the Capitol.

April - We have no pictures from April because Paul had the camera while visiting Sequim, Washington.



This time there was no homeschooling bill that THSC thought needed lobbying so we delivered cookies instead.

"Would you like some cookies?"

Grace and I in the underground Capitol annex. Our families had been put together on a team.

More cookies.

Debriefing afterwards.

Discovering A New Word

The joy which comes from God is inexpressible.
The extent of God's peace is incomprehensible.
The majesty of God is indescribable.
God's holiness is unutterable.
God is ineffable.

Ineffable: Incapable of being expressed or described in words; inexpressible.
