Fun facts on my new home state of VA:

In VA you can get your learners permit when you are fifteen and nine months.

65%  of VA is covered by forests

 Virginia is known as "the birthplace of a nation".

Eight United States Presidents were born in Virginia: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, William Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor, and Woodrow Wilson.

The State nickname is "Old Dominion".

The first peanuts grown in the United States were grown in Virginia.

The states of Kentucky & West Virginia were formed from sections of the state of Virginia

The first Thanksgiving in North America was held in Virginia in 1619.

So now you know a little about VA, and so do I! 
I'm happy in my new home state and now call it home.
