A few weeks ago, I took my class on a field trip to see our Capitol building in Lansing. This is the fourth time I've taken this field trip, and every year I learn something new. I don't remember ever hearing in past years that the stars at the top of the dome are made with gold and platinum paint in order to make them more visible from the ground level. It's an absolutely beautiful building. If you're ever in Michigan, I highly recommend taking a tour!
Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy.
My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
