…after serving as an adult chaperone for our church’s youth group trip to the DCLA conference. We had a bit of a Spartan existence for the past several days, including no Internet access, which is why the blog has been quiet for a bit. Interestingly enough, daily traffic levels were pretty typical, so the reports I use indicate most visitors are coming here for the depth of older posts/comments and not so much for the latest ones.
There’s no better place to be on the Fourth of July than Washington, D.C. This was my second time there for the Fourth in the past three years. Our group was fortunate enough to catch the fireworks while sitting at the base of the Washington Monument. Awesome! If anybody ever tells you not to go to D.C. for the Fourth (because “it’s too hot and too crowded”), ignore them – it’s the best!
