Last post before we hit the road!

One of the most historic buildings in Old town Alexandria is the United Church of Christ which was built in 1765. It is where George Washington worshipped.  Here is what it looks like from the outside as well as inside.

Surrounding the Church are an array of original gravestones. This one I am looking at dates back to 1792 and it was the wife of a minister of the Church at the time. 

And this photo is especially for Paul Whiteman! As we walked out from the Church this beautiful Harley Davison was sitting by the entrance and it seemed such a interesting contrast so Leisa took a shot.

Following our historic tour we went back to the apartment where Leisa was meeting Arayah to give her a reading session. Arayah is an adorable 9-year-old who Leisa mentors as part of a city mentoring program. She reads with her every Friday using LRH study tech. She reads very well  now.  This week it was my turn while Leisa did art work.  Leisa had a new book for Arayah that was really neat as it showed children from around the world. And of course one of the children featured was a 9-year-old girl from New Zealand … as you can see below. 

 

My next posts will be sent once we are on the road for Michigan! Nice chatting to you. Love Melva xxx
