A Little History Lesson

When my husband took the day off and my mom was in town we found ourselves with some free time. We decided to take Stinky to one of the 21 missions unique to California. We went to Mission San Jose which is right in our back yard. While not one of the most impressive missions it was Stinky's first Mission experience. I hope to take her to every Mission by the time she graduates from high school. It is an important part of our history and there are so many interesting items to see and stories to hear. She was able to experience the vibrant colors in the church, really old tombstones and the images of important people who helped develop the area in which we live. Just the beginning of what I hope will be a love for history.
