Cooling Down in DC
The weekend was filled with rain and cooler temperatures. Bittersweet, in some ways, since I love summer, but I wasn't sad to see the temperatures fall below 90 degrees. Summer in DC is a different animal than summer in Portland. I'm readjusting to east coast weather. For example, here's what the weather looked like this morning:
So instead of outdoor activities, we did a lot of inside stuff. We put together our bed and end tables, ran errands, and made our place look more like home. The cat approves:
Finally, today we visited the African American History Museum. It was moving and a reminder of why education is so important. We need to know the history of our country--all of it. I loved the design of the museum. Starting underground and rising to the surface was a pivotal part of the whole experience. The reflection room was a welcome way to reconnect to the world after the emotional journey through the history section. We didn't get to any of the above-ground floors, but I hope to return soon.
