Now that school is almost done for the year, I’m beginning to feel quite restless. I need to head out of town for a few days and soon! A change of scenery refreshes me. Fortunately, Bela and I are heading to DC in a couple of weeks for the film exhibit for the American History Film Project (AHFP). Bela is a great sidekick—easy to get along with and loves to travel.
I hope Bela takes advantage of the chance to see the war memorials and soak up some history in the short time we will be there. I look forward to visiting friends I made last year. Stay tuned—I’ll post all about it when we get home!
If you’ve been keeping up, you already know I spent the weekend in the Annandale (VA) area. My student and I were there on school business, but Martha (founder of American History Film Project) informed us that Saturday morning was for sight seeing in the D. C. area!
Kim and Stephen picked us up around nine in a convertible! We felt like royalty! Stephen even gave us some spending money! I jokingly asked him if he had nothing better to do on a Saturday morning, and he said that God told him to drive us around. I appreciate that. 🙂
Lexi and I loved the car!
Stephen and Kim took us to so many places that there is no way I can remember them all (in order!). I have to say that the war memorials were quite moving. The combat patrol was especially intriguing for me for some reason. Kim really knows her stuff, and she was chock full of information. Our brains were full in no time!
The combat patrol is behind Lexi and Kim.
This fine officer attended a Nebraska university! Small world, eh?
Lexi and I both spent some money here. The white shirts were $4!
I will post more pictures in the next day or two, so come back soon! There’s more to tell!
