Adventures in Academia: 2nd Grade!

My Little Brat started 2nd grade today....this quote best describes her mindset:
"I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught." -Winston Churchill

Seems like just yesterday I was sending her off on her first day of 1st grade......and not so long ago Kindergarten was the big hooplah! It won't be long till Sophie and CJ follow in her steps and head down the education highway as well...sigh.
Happy Trails,

Westwood is one of the original Plantations located on Guinea Station Road, as seen on the Virginia Civil War Trails Map and Guide, Antebellum Homes (Stonewall Jackson Shrine).

Westwood is situated on 65 acres of lush Spotsylvania countryside. It is one of the original Historic Plantations located on Guinea Station Road, and the second oldest in the county. The original home was built in 1818, with a small office and kitchen added in the early 1900's. This home has been witness to many decades of war, prosperity and family. This home was restored about 30 years ago. Additionally, the home and facilities have been lovingly restored over the past 2 years to include a new kitchen, master bathroom, office, and more!

Westwood is located on historic Guinea Station Road. During a night reconnaissance at Chancellorsville on May 2nd, 1863, Stonewall Jackson was wounded by his own men. While being carried from the field, he was dropped on his wounded arm, and he lost around half of his blood as a result. His left arm was amputated, and Jackson was sent by ambulance down Guinea Station Road to the Chandler House, where he spent his final days. Gaze from the front stoop out to what must have only been a dusty country lane and you can almost see the dust cloud left trailing behind Stonewall’s ambulance. If you close your eyes, and listen to the distant whistle of the passing train, you can imagine yourself back in that time, where Westwood stood witness to this historic event.

Westwood is ready to offer you many years of quality country living without sacrificing the comfort of modern conveniences and location. Simplify your life, and build your own history with this endearing Spotsylvania gem.

Westwood has undergone caring continuous improvements from 2007 to date. The land has been cleared and cultivated, the home has been remodeled, and the facilities have been upgraded. New roofing, support structures, septic system, and weather proofing will help ensure Westwood stands for another 100 years!

Beyond the standard conveyances (i.e. appliances, ceiling fans, washer/dryer, etc.), Westwood offers all the equipment and supplies you need to either run your very own equestrian business, or pamper your own ponies in private!
