I have pictures from a few weeks ago when we did work in the homeschool room, but I’ll post them in a few days. Last week, we were in Washington DC (my husband was doing some training for work, and we decided to tag along). We had a lot of things lined up for the week, so I have quite a few posts coming with pictures.
Day 1 was very interesting. We are pretty rural kind of people so being smack in the middle of a big city and needing to navigate it is pretty interesting. Add in the fact that the GPS on my phone wasn’t working well, so I was going at it old fashioned (walking without a GPS! LOL!), and we’re going to call it an adventure!
So, before I get to the pictures…a little riddle. Take 2 kids with autism and plop them in the middle of Washington DC right where all the fun is. Now, tell me what they thought was the most interesting part…..the part the couldn’t stop talking about….the part they OBSESSED about, begging our tour guide to let them see it one more time….. Wait for it…..
The escalators. Yep. The older two were absolutely obsessed with escalators (so lucky for them, we encountered them a lot–on the metro, in the Capitol building, etc.). Goofy kids!
Anyhow…. Day 1, we went to the National Botanic Gardens, the Supreme Court building, and then our state representative had one of his staffers, Abby, give us a tour of the Capitol building (we even got to sit in the Representatives’ Gallery…we weren’t allowed to take pictures in it, and there were no Representatives in it, but it was still very very awesome. This is the room that is on CSPAN a lot, and it is the one where the State of the Union address is given each year.)
