… 9 days to go.
This past week we took our students to Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington. It is a wonderful place to visit with the mansion, outbuildings, view of the Potomac River, gardens, grounds, museum and inn.
My photo doesn’t do the mansion justice.
Like the rest of society while impressed with the above mentioned sights, our students were most interested in when they would have a chance to visit the gift shop. Of course, we didn’t let them down.
Mount Vernon has three fabulous gift shops.
A little something for the teacher.
Another gem or tweleve that grabbed my attention.
Our students were also impressed with the fact that we travelled I-95 in two luxury busses on the 90 minute ride to Mount Vernon. Most had never been on this type of transportation so it is quite a treat. In truth it is a treat for the teacher also because we watch a movie to pass the time in both directions…of course as luck would have it the DVD players were not working and….
…on the ride home we were fortunate to experience a little thing called a check engine light.
We all lived to tell about it and they have a very special memory…one that I hope you get to enjoy someday.
It really is worth the trip.
You know the countdown and hooray …it’s the weekend.
