We arrived in our nation’s capital very late last evening, but we were still able to visit the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials (along with a gazillion school children). We also spent some time in Union Station for a late dinner and a look see.
Today we ventured out to Arlington National Cemetary and the U.S. Capitol building. Tomorrow we will motor over to the Naval Academy in Annapolis to witness a special young lady marry a recent graduate (today) of the academy in the chapel on the Naval Academy grounds. Tonight we are having dinner with the young lady’s two brothers. Both young men are currently serving their country. I’ve written about them before.
Pictures? Oh my, do I have pictures! Unfortunately, the connection in my hotel isn’t cooperating with my computer as well as I would like for it to, so we might just have to wait until next week for visuals….but why am I saying this? You already know I’m going to tell you all about all of the interesting things I’ve done and seen. That’s how I roll around here, isn’t it?
In the meantime until I get to post more visit the education carnival to see what is going on in the education blogosphere. The carnival is currently posted over at Teacher in a Strange Land.
Also…..many, many thanks to all of the folks who voted for History Is Elementary in the category of education/homeschooling for Best of the Blogs. If you haven’t voted or would like to vote again you can vote once each day between now and the 26th. You can vote here.
