I just got back from four days in Washington, D.C., for a national educators’ conference that drew about 15,000 educators to the city. We had jam-packed days with some really worthwhile workshops, presentations, time in the exhibit halls, and I’ve brought back all kinds of great ideas for my students, colleagues, and myself.
We also had to take advantage of such a vibrant, historic city. I soon ditched my heels for sneakers as we logged 12-15 miles on foot each day, back and forth to the convention center, exhibits, hotels . . . but also to the wonderful historic and cultural sights around the city. I even got a glimpse of the first pooch at the White House. If you missed my earlier post on Bo Obama, click here.
As far as flora goes, the cherry blossoms were over, but the dogwood was in full bloom, as well as azaleas and a plethora of other wonderful flowers.
The Botanical Garden was also incredible. . .
This is short and sweet and I promise more later . . . it’s just that I’ve got unpacking to do and a family to take care of who’s feeling a bit neglected . . .
To see who else is strolling on this gorgeous weekend, visit the Quiet Country House.
