We are in Washington, DC. I've been at the National Archives gathering primary sources for some classes I'm teaching. The kids have been hanging out with friends at the museums.
Tomorrow we all go to Mount Vernon, home of George Washington, after which I'm taking H to Evensong at Washington Cathedral. We popped into the cathedral Tuesday afternoon and it just took her breath away. She wants to go back, so I figured what better way to see a Cathedral than to actually attend a service. She's had to draw several cathedrals for French class and her chorus teacher keeps asking them to imagine singing in a cathedral when they sing a particular song. It's an instance of perfect timing--Lou appreciated the building, but H soaked it all in.
It's been chilly, but warmer than Vermont. Of course, there's a wintry mix coming in tonight. I swear, I'm haunted by these storms this year.
