Flashback: “Statute of Liver-Tea”
I’m still on vacation this week! Fortunately, I have an oldie-but-goodie for you. This is one of my favorite photos of all time just because it kind of encompasses my girls and the way they play completely.
This photo was taken back in January 2010. I had been teaching my oldest, Zoë, about the Statue of Liberty. Once school was over, the two older girls went off and played in their room and the twins went and played in their room. I walked by the twins’ room, and lo-and-behold, Briar was portraying the “Statute of Liver-Tea” complete with robe, crown, and torch. It was pretty cool to see that she had picked-up on what Zoë had been learning in school.
The Statue of Liberty has a wonderful history. There is a documentary (I showed it to the girls back in 2010) by Ken Burns that is a fascinating look at the making of the statue. I highly recommond watching it. It is currently available for streaming on Netflix, though streaming ends July 1, 2013.
As of now, the Statue of Liberty is closed down due to damages at Ellis and Liberty Islands which were caused by Hurricane Sandy, but it will re-open July 4, 2013. Yay!
I promise a brand new photo session bursting with skepticism for you next week! I already know what I am going to do. I hope to see you then.
