Thank you Columbus!
We got all the way to DCA on a half empty plane doing math, reading and copywork to find an old friend. We said the Pledge of Allegiance to a flag surrounding the Washington Monument. Daddy and #1 brother caught up with us only after we visited the national Mall and Natural History museum. The carousel was a bonus I had to surprise them with after the compliant walk all the way down to Lincoln then back up to the Smithsonian. We actually arrived home on the first plane out of IAD we tried with all the library books I had packed for the trip. Each has their own library card now and I can't imagine started a bad record already...
Today was a vacation day to visit with Kansas friends at the Morton Arboretum, but here is 0ne more picture of my adventurers from the spot where MLK Jr made his speech in the '60s.
