Washington DC Field Trip With Brandon

20150530 washingtondcfieldtripI chaperoned a field trip with Brandon’s 8th grade class from St Pats this last week. We had an awesome 4 FULL days of touring that left everyone exhausted. I made this trip once before with Nate so I suppose I’ll let Jean go next year with Aly seeing as she’s never been to DC before!

It’s pretty amazing how much we got to see. I logged 23 miles of walking over the 4 days! My highlight was watching some fool jump a fence at the Whitehouse and get put to the ground.

Here’s a photo gallery of the field trip.
