We had to check out of our hotel first thing this morning and load the bus we will be traveling home in. Then we boarded another bus for a full day of touring before we start heading home. Everyone is very tired at this point. It’s been a tough but fun week. Most of us are also eager to get home and see our loved ones. There are just a few more things we need to do before we head home such as touring the Ford’s Theatre and the Peterson House. Unfortunately, the Peterson House was under renovation. Ford’s Theatre is where President Lincoln was assassinated, and then they took him across the street to the Peterson House where he died. During lunch we finished up some last minute souvenir purchases at the Hard Rock Café and other souvenir stores. Our final museum was the Crime and Punishment Museum. We had an awesome time touring the museum learning about famous crimes, but the best part was the forensic exercises. We were able to cast Kayla’s shoe print and each person got to dust for finger prints.
We wrapped up our site seeing with a final tour of the FDR memorial.
We returned to our hotel to board our bus we are coming home in. Now it is time to get settled for a long night of riding on the bus. Tonight we will not stop at a hotel; hopefully we will get some rest on the bus.
Here’s what today’s bloggers had to say:
Caroline is Claiborne’s delegate:
Her favorite part of the day was the Crime and Punishment Museum. It was absolutely great. It was probably the most fun museum we have been to.
Her least favorite part of the day was rushing to get ready this morning and loading the bus to come home. Even though I woke up two hours early I was running late.
Today’s activities taught Caroline that investigations of crimes are nothing like what they show on TV (surprise surprise). The mimage I had in my head was completely wrong.
Caroline would like to say to her loved ones back home…I miss all of you very much. I can’t wait to see you and tell you all about this trip. It has been amazing!!
Josh is Jeff Davis’s delegate:
His favorite part of the day was the FDR memorial.
His least favorite part of the day was nothing really.
Today’s activities taught Josh to put his own problems out of the way to help everyone enjoy the trip.
Josh would like to say to his loved ones back home…thank you for allowing me to come on this trip.
Kayla is NRG’s delegate:
Her favorite part of the day was enjoying the Crime and Punishment Museum. It was very hands on.
Her least favorite part of the day was…today was fairly easy, so I can’t say I had a hard part or a least favorite.
Today’s activities taught Kayla the Crime and Punishment Museum has enhanced my knowledge of crime, punishment, and law enforcement.
Kayla would like to say to her loved ones back home..I love you and I’m on my way home.
Kalya would also like to say thanks for being genuinely caring chaperones.
