Washington DC

Hattie's birthday festivities continue, and pictures will follow soon. I CAN'T believe how grown up this special girl is becoming! We are so excited to have all "the cousins" this weekend to celebrate as well as some friends!

And as if its dull enough around here...

We are getting ready for a really fun trip...to Washington DC. Jody is taking a small group of students from NGU to work with a church, and we decided that we would all go. The kids' teachers are all excited for us too. Silas will be keeping a journal of the trip. Hattie will have a chance to share a little with her class and Luke is just plain excited. He told his preschool teacher this: One day I'm gonna wake up and I should be coming to preschool but I'm not going to come because I will be in Washington DC.

We will visit some friends and family, go to the zoo, visit a few museums and monuments, and help with some of the projects. I bought the 3 older kids their own disposable camera so they can take their own pictures. (We'll see how THAT goes!!) I'm trying to plan out our agenda somewhat. I have to work out some naps and decent bedtimes, because if you know me you know how cranky I get when my kids are not well rested. But I'm sure it will be fun! Im sure I'll have a LOT to say when we get back!

I welcome any little tips you may have!!

Sometimes I think you get crankier than they do when they don't nap :)

They will LOVE the Smithsonian museums-make sure you hit natural history and the air and space museums...oh, and take the White House tour, it's cool! We will miss you around here :o)

With how cheap digital cameras are now, I got my kids a "Kidizoom" (about $20) so they can take pics and download them later (or erase them as they go) - the thing is INDESTRUCTIBLE! Silas might even be ready for a "grownup" digital - over the long term WAY cheaper than a disposable considering the cost of developing the pics!
Have a fun trip!
