Or at least that is how I imagine my report on the capital of Vermont should start. Between Senate Agriculture Committee hearings and town meeting we’ve been doing a lot of government for homeschooling the past week. All of this coupled with NAIS has led to many discussions about government.
So seriously, above is a winter photo of our state capital building. It is made with granite, which is rather appropriate given that rocks are rather common around here. They grow well in our fields as well as being quarried in many of the towns in these parts.
Montpelier is just half an hour from our house so although we may be way out in the sticks and not come down off of our mountain for weeks some times it is not far to the city. Barre and Montpelier, twin cities, have a population of around 9,000 each. I realize to some of you those are barely small towns but in these parts they are each good sized cities from our perspective.
