Today was Capitol Day in Oklahoma! We traveled to Oklahoma City to the Capitol building. More than 2,000 homeschoolers attend this really cool event. It is a day for homeschooling families to meet their representatives, tour the capitol and participate/watch several neat things. Here is a little look into our day.
