Capital Experience

Whitney and her best friend Natalie had the opportunity to be interns for the Legislative session at the Capital for the last several weeks. I'm so glad she had such a great opportunity to see our government in action. It meant LOTS of extra driving for mom, but it was worth it.

"I just finished my internship with the conservative watchdog group Eagle Forum. I went up to capitol hill twice a week to help track bills and shadow professional lobbyists. It was awesome being at the capitol all the time because of all the different people you would meet, from open carry gun men with an opinion, to professional falconers, to gay/animal rights activists to Taiwan ambassadors. It was also pretty cool to be in a committee meeting and then later that afternoon hear the local new station reporting on it. :)"
