The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

Tour in DC

Can I just say that today was the greatest. You name it, we saw it in Washington DC. We took a tour of the city (6 hours). It was a tour that let you get on and off the bus. It was also nice because we only had like 15 people on the bus. The greatest part of the day was when we went to the WWII memorial. There were veterans all over the place. There was one only gentleman in particular that was in a wheelchair sitting there. He had the biggest smile on his face and his family all around him was crying.
After seeing all of the other war memorials, you just understand more what these men went through to keep this country free. I saw one lady there with her grandad, and she had a shirt on that said, "If you can read this thank at teacher. If you can read this in english, thank a soldier. I had never seen that before.
All in all, it was a great day. We even saw the Capitol and the White House. Tomorrow after church we plan on going to Arlington National Cemetery and then to the National Air and Space Museum. We will see if our plans work out!......
Oh, and I can't get our camera to sync up with the computer, so I will post the pictures when we get back.
