The east coast trip with my dad sadly ended today. On the final day we toured Colonial Williamsburg. It was a great education in 18th century Virginia.
Our forefathers were wonderful men and women who believed in a better way to live. The courageously fought for those freedoms and beliefs. They were politicians, presidents, scholars, slave owners, educated and above all farmers.
Children unlike today were required to be part of the running household.
In my heart I know this was a better way to be a family - strong, united and needed - loved, cared for and guided.
Today I used Autopainter as my painterly effect filter.
