a capitol tree

One of the great things about having your child enrolled in a preschool directly across from the state capitol is we get to have class picnics on the lawn (which the school also uses as playground on occasion). Another perk is that, odds are, one of your child's classmates has a parent who works at the capitol, so during the holidays she can get you up close and personal to view the Christmas tree in the House of Representatives chamber (otherwise roped off to the public). Tillie and I accompanied Scout and her class on a field trip, which means a short walk, there on Friday afternoon where we partook in carols in the rotunda and a Texas-sized tree in the chamber. It turns out that getting a decent shot of a class of four year-olds in front of the giant tree isn't as easy as gaining access to said tree.
