Today many spellers were able to leisurely enjoy the sights of Washington D.C. In past years, my family has gone to the National Archives, the National Air and Space Museum, the National Portrait Gallery and the Natural History Museum. Last year, thanks to Congressman John Yarmuth of KY, we visited the White House and enjoyed a private tour of the Capitol Building.
This year, we decided to take the water taxi from National Harbor to the National Mall. We enjoyed the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial. It was a good day to relax and reflect on the past year and plan for the year ahead – there is yet so much more to learn and I’m excited to begin the journey again but first I’m going to take a much needed break!
Tonight I look forward to the Awards Banquet and the party afterwards!
