The roller coaster that will be Graduation Week starts today. My parents arrive midday to BWI and we couldn’t be more thrilled! So excited that we will have a few days with them to show them our DC before the rest of the family arrives this weekend. We haven’t seen them practically all year! Caleb’s spring classes began on January 2nd so we had to leave Georgia on January 1st. It feels like I’ve been waiting forever for this day to come.
We have been preparing for their arrival and are basically finished with the bulk of packing, but the apartment is kind of a wreak– remnants of boxes and packing material everywhere. Even though we can’t show them our best “home” I still want it to be clean so I’ll have to make this post short. Insert classic photo dump blog post here. [smile] Fortunately I have the perfect set of pictures to share.
Last Friday, we joined some seminary friends for “DC Day.” We’d planned this day as a way to wish this fair city we’d called home over the last 3 years a fond farewell. We had a perfect day: weather was lovely; crowds were relatively low for a Friday in tourist season; we ate at some of the most fun restaurants; and even got to visit a Senator’s office. We looked like tourists and it was so fun! Photos are courtesy of the wonderful Jana Hogg, seminary cohort and actually the person who introduced us to each other. Hope you enjoy following along with our adventure.
