A gentle reminder ...

The goal of this blog initially was for Mr. Mc to show his students and friends what he doing while in Pennsylvania and DC in 2011. Now it's being used as a place for him, travelling colleagues and former students to discuss edumacation and history related "stuff" as well as ... well, anything which pops into his head. Mr. Mc would never knowingly embarrass either the school he loves or the family he is devoted to. By joining in the discussion, he expects the same of you.

Ford's Theater Retreat--Day One

We left cold, snowy Wichita at 6 a.m. and arrived at temperate spring Washington D.C.  by lunchtime. An absolutely gorgeous day and we took advantage. The Wichita delegation grabbed lunch and headed to the Capitol Building for a tour set up by Representative Pompeo's office. Our tour guide, a fellow Wichitan was excellent. After the tour we wandered back toward Ford's for a meet and greet for the kids. While they gorged themselves on pizza and ice breakers, the adults met and chatted. This is an impressive group of teachers and parents. Impressive. A final walk to the White House and stroll through Lafayette Park and we were done for the day. Tomorrow is a full day of activities so, enjoy the pictures and good night.
