Mt. Vernon and Memorials

So yesterday morning, we went to Mt. Vernon. That was really exciting, it was fancier than Monticello. It was really hot though. Then we went to our meeting :roll eyes:. First we talked about some current bills, then we talked about the farm bill. That is going to be our main focus. The problem is, that only one person in the room really knows what it's about. (Not me:)) Then we went to our Committee Workshops. Mine is called Healthy Living. We give our state the weather report and a healthy tip. Then the committee worked on the derby. The derby is not for horses! We are going to play water games, volleyball, capture the flag, and then were going to play tug-of-war, state vs. state. We are going to have a maximum of 10 people per team, since Nebraska has like 70 people and we only have about 30. You can have as many teams as you want though. Then we went to the war memorials, I can't remember them all, but one of them was the Lincoln memorial. That was interesting, except we were out until 11:30 at night. We were so tired. Then my friends and I decided to meet for breakfast at 7:00. That didn't work too well. My alarm was set for 6:30, but I didn't even realize it was going off until 6:38! I felt really bad, since my roommates didn't want to get up that early. Only one of the guys woke up in time to eat with me. Anyway that's what I've been doing. I'll post again later probably tonight.
