The Hills are Allive....

Helen went on my dream field trip today with her German class.....

She met Rosemarie and Johannes von Trapp and heard the story of their lives --how the family fled Austria, life in Vermont, all about their music.

Rosemarie von Trapp

Then they hiked up to the chapel Werner built in thanksgiving for coming back from WW II safely.

Finally, they sat down to an Austrian meal with some of the *very* handsome Swiss kitchen staff who conversed with them in German :)

Now that's a field trip.

Wow! I have been meaning to put their books on our read aloud list. I hear they are quite inspirational.
