Back in March I wrote about how geeky my family is, after we visited Parson Weems' house. For teachinghistory.org I thought more about what it means as a teacher to visit historical location such as this one.
The best part of this story is that I sent off the post along with a few pictures I had taken during our visit. The wonderful folks at teachinghistory.org did a bit of searching for better pictures of Parson Weems' house. They found some fabulous ones on flickr and contacted the photographer. As it turns out, those pictures were taken by my husband. He was quite amused to receive an email explaining who they were and why they wanted the pictures. Fortunately, he gave permission.
