As a blogger, I may be compensated in some way (either pay, product, or experience) for sharing the post below All opinions are my own. ~Heidi
I’ve been going through some of the older posts on my blog (the oldest of which were transferred here from another blog). It’s funny how blogging has evolved over the years. Many of my old posts contain no pictures; and now a blog post without pictures is virtually unheard of. When blogging first came to be, it was literally an online journal. Pictures were a plus, but certainly not necessary.
Anyway, I came across some posts from the Spring of 2007 that I thought would be fun to repost. Maybe it will encourage you to look into a similar opportunity for your child.
Ashley as a Guest Page
(Originally posted on April 24, 2007)
Today Ashley had the opportunity of spending the day at our State Capitol building~ serving as a Guest Page to our State Representative Adam Harris. PA’s capitol building is one of the most beautiful capitol buildings in all of the US.
This morning, Ashley and her friend actually got to sit in on Session~ she brought home a video showing them being introduced as Representative Harris’ guests. They also got to attend a few meetings with him this morning. A photographer took their picture with him~ they will be putting it in the mail tomorrow~ so I will share that when it arrives.
It was a great opportunity for these homeschooled girls!
A Career in Politics? No Way

A few weeks ago, I blogged about Ashley’s day at our state capitol, serving as a guest page for our state representative. Finally, we got the picture back, and I wanted to share it here. Ashley’s on the right, her friend Hannah is on the left, and in the center is Representative Harris.
Ashley said that she’d love to do it again sometime; but she’s pretty much decided that she does NOT want a career in politics!
