I was lucky enough to by-pass the lottery of chaperones and be selected to accompany Curtis on his 4-day 8th grade field trip to Washington D.C. We saw lots of museums, memorials and monuments.
I was glad Curtis got to see all these things in Washington D.C. so he would know they are not just characters from the movie "Night at the Museum."
We also visited the American History Museum (has one of the three remaining sun stones from the Nauvoo temple and a cool U.S. coin collection), Natural History Museum, Aerospace Museum, Arlington Cemetery, and ALL the War Memorials.
Curtis did great on this trip--he had a great attitude and enough energy for all the walking around. He shared a hotel room with 3 other boys. I think the highlight for him was the yummy all-you-can eat buffet meals and of course soda.
