Learning about Culture and Presidents at the National Museum of American History, Washington DC.

                    George Washington Statue at National Museum of American History – Washington, D.C.

This is the last post of a series – images and stories from our experiences during the US Home Leave. Before we arrived to our newest work and life adventure, we got to spend some time with family back in the US, sharing our stories and experiences of the past two years living and working in Brazil; do a bit of traveling, spend some great quality time with our kids at parks in Delaware and Virginia… and visit the National Mall in Washington, DC. A lot done during our ‘home leave’, now, being shared with our friends, family and curious readers! :All of that will be presented here… one at a time, though! 😮 

Sixth stop: The Presidents Hall, at the National Museum of American History, Washington DC: Link to the exhibit is here.

The Flag that inspired the National Anthem

Well, we’re in La Paz, Bolivia, now. But before we arrived to our newest work and life adventure, we got to spend some time with family back in the US, sharing our stories and experiences of the past two years living and working in Brazil; do a bit of traveling, spend some great quality time with our kids at parks in Delaware and Virginia… and visit the National Mall in Washington, DC. A lot done during our ‘home leave’, now, being shared with our friends, family and curious readers! :All of that will be presented here… one at a time, though! 😮 

Third stop: The Star-Spangled Banner Exhibit, Washington DC: Link to the exhibit is here.

Getting ready to unfold the Flag and sing the National Anthem. Curious eyes follow every step of the way. All visitors become part of the interactive visit to the Museum of American History – at 3pm, the performance starts…

 

Our children watched, mesmerized, the visitors below, singing and honoring the National Flag – what a great way to share with them information about the greatest symbol of the country… learning should never stop… a live experience they’ll always hold in their hearts!

Next time, our fourth stop, where we’ll share images and comments of our visits to several halls at the Museum of Natural History (Smithsonian). Children’s curiosity is endless! 😮 We had the pleasure of being joined by a dear friend, whose patience and care for my children are priceless… Thank you very much, Cherise! ♥
