This is an apolitical blog, so I will not talk about the presidential election yesterday. Not because I am an apolitical person—far from it actually. Will will probably laugh hysterically at the thought of me suppressing any of my rational, logical and 100% correct viewpoints for any extended period of time. But I know that my favorite reads (other than political reads of course) are those that do not divide their audience. So in an effort to do the same, I bring you a very different kind of election today. And, I think you’ll agree, a much more adorable one at that:
George’s preschool participated in a scarecrow contest fundraiser at the local historical home, Agecroft Hall.
In a cold but beautiful fall morning last weekend, we visited the exhibit located on the grounds of Agecroft.
With a view of the James River, a maze, and beautiful gardens is it any wonder that Frances assumed this was an actual castle where an actual princess must have lived.
|The garden maze was suspiciously lacking in wall height, but what a time saver.|
|Lemon trees? In Virginia? In November?|
|I loved these beehives, especially since they contained no actual bees.|
|Frances rolling, George watching.|
|I could get used to that view.|
The scarecrows did not disappoint (although I didn’t take nearly as many pictures of them as I should have):
|I loved this one - so clever!|
|Will's old stomping ground.|
|The Headless Horseman was pretty neat.|
But our votes went to George’s school’s scarecrow.
In all honesty, I really did think it was the best. Not that we’re biased or anything.
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
