In Part 1, Gloria and Tim visited the Lincoln Memorial.
President Lincoln believed in equality for all.
Tim and his parents thought Gloria would like that lesson.
Hey Aqua Room,
Gloria had a very busy day yesterday! First she went and saw the White House. That is where the President of the United States of America lives! Her favorite part was when a VIP left the White House, and lots and lots of cars with lights went by.
Then we went to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. Gloria wanted to take a picture with this mummy from Egypt. Spooky!
Finally we had lunch. Gloria was adamant we get bar b q. She had the brisket, with a side of mac and cheese of course.
Tim says I miss you! Enjoy all your vacation weeks next week.
Tim and Gloria
My goodness! We talked about the White House, and then mummies. That was a long and fascinating conversation. Finally I stood up and poked all over my body, saying “There is a skeleton, all your bones connected, inside everybody. The outside is right here, skin and muscle. It covers the bones, the skeleton. Tim and Gloria saw a skeleton from Egypt, thousands of years old. That is so cool!”
Stay tuned for Part 3, with a major work of art AND a big surprise. Oh, my!
Love how it all leads to more organic learning!
It looks to me like Gloria had an amazing trip, and enjoyed that tasty food too! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
She did.🙂 One more to go. Best to you, Pete.
gloria loves learning, just like her companions, and it happens quite naturally –
Thumbs up to Gloria for her travels – but even more for her culinary choices!
Yes, indeed! Thank you, Frank.
It looks like Gloria had fun! Now I am looking forward to part 3 and the big surprise!
She did. Thank you.
Thank you for letting us see Gloria’s adventures in Washington:)). And brisket with mac and cheese – oh my goodness. Never a combination you’d see this side of the Pond:). It was a learning moment for me!
Yes, that’s interesting and popular here. Thank you, Sarah. One more Gloria in Washington to come.🙂
Looking forward to reading it:)).
…and look how naturally Tim & Gloria have donned their masks when appropriate…no big deal, just life right now. A subtle ‘learning’ thing, too!
You noticed! It is much easier for children than for us.
Wow! I didn’t learn about mummification until I was an adult.
Whoa. How fun to talk about skeletons and all the pieces that make up our bodies. Looks like Tim and Gloria are enjoying Washington! Fun post, Jennie.
The skeleton part was the most fun for learning. They had a blast!
I can imagine!
This trip just keeps getting better and better. So much to see and do, and learn!
Hear, hear! I’m still in a slight state of wonderful shock. 🙂
That Dad is pretty terrific for sharing the adventures.
Yes!! Boy, does he ever ‘get it’. And to take the time to email the class with photos…wow!
This is such a cool trip!
It really is! Thanks, FR.
What a glorious Day.. ❤
What a field trip! Gloria and Tim will have a lot to talk about for many years.
Yes, they will!
Great adventure in learning… Tim and Gloria are awesome teachers and the lessons are sure to go on and on!
What fun, and how special it was to want to share that experience with his class.
Hats off to the dad who took the time to send photos and emails to the class!
Supporting your children’s goals means so much to them.
Gloria is sharing quite an education!
She really is!
What a great trip it has been so far!!
I agree, and one more to go! 😀
I envy Gloria actually getting to go on a vacation!!
