As of tomorrow morning, my kids will be together in Washington D.C. Jessica and her fiance Matt are working there this summer as interns (for different organizations). She bravely and kindly invited her younger brother Paul to fly from California to visit her for ten days. This is Paul’s first time traveling by himself, so he is being brave too.
We visited the capitol as a family two years ago when Jessica was singing in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, so Paul knows something about the place. He has been researching what he wants to see and adding his ideas to our family calendar: the National Museum of the American Indian, the National Air and Space Museum, the mall, the National Zoo, Colonial Williamsburg (near where his to-be-brother-in-law Matt goes to college), and other sites.
I am pleased that my kids have such a good relationship and I hope that their adventure will go well.
