Helen's View of Williamsburg

We just got back from our first home exchange! We went to Williamsburg for the weekend while a couple from Williamsburg came to DC for the big Science Fair. At one point today, Helen said

Helen: "Didn't George Washington die a long time ago?"
Ed: "Yes"
Helen: "Well people should just forget about him!"

This took place after touring the Governor's Palace, when Helen believed she had been invited to a ball that evening and was a little disappointed when I explained to her the tour guide was just pretending.


  1. Hope you had a great trip and that the home exchange worked well.

    1. It was really fun! We're doing another one at the end of summer. Hopefully it'll work out as well!

  2. Hope the experience was fun and that you're getting ready for the upcoming international one.
    Sometimes I would be inclined to think like Helen but Yossi would remind me that you need to know the past to understand the present
