TeenPact '09

Here is Nicholas in is committee on a field experience. They are downstairs near the mailroom, and outside the doors to the Senate and House Floors. 
Next is Emily playing "Do you love your neighbor?" after the evening Bible study. 
Nicholas looking sharp in his suit.

TeenPact '09

We went to Santa Fe for a week, and Nicholas participated in something called TeenPact. It is a hands-on leadership and government class from a Christian world view. The pictures below show Daniel in bed (yes he got sick on the trip), Nicholas with friends during one of the Bible studies at night, and Daniel and Emily outside the Round House "playing with the other kids".
