January ~ Governor's Mansion Tour

On January 5, 2017, my family went to the Louisiana Governor's Mansion on a field trip with Bayou Cajun Homeschoolers.  Ms. Sue was our tour guide, and she did not disappoint.  She seemed to know everything about the home and much about its past inhabitants.  She was extremely interesting and humorous, and the group we went with seemed to enjoy her tour very much.  Towards the end of the tour, we had a surprise visitor.  The First Lady of our state, Mrs. Donna Edwards came down to greet us, and even posed for pictures with us.  This made our trip that much more special.  She was gracious, and kind, and very accommodating to our picture taking and small talk.  On our way out of the mansion, I must mention, we were treated to one of the Mansion's chocolate chip cookies.  These are some really good cookies, y'all!  Another successful field trip with Bayou Cajun Homeschoolers.  We learned quite a lot about the Mansion, and about our state, ate cookies, and met our First Lady.  Definitely a good way to spend a school morning.
