Famility Time

Hello Reinas,

It is very important that a family spends quality time together.  There are many ways that this can be accomplished without breaking the bank.  My family and I have been visiting Washington, D.C. on a yearly basis.  This trip is economical because there are so many free educational activities.  For example, the Smithsonian Zoo is a one of my son's favorite destination due to its variety of species.    Guess what?  It is free!!   We also visit the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History,  Martin Luther King, Jr exhibit, Lincoln Memorial, etc.  As an educator, I stress the importance of exposing our children to many meaningful experiences.  Moreover, it is essential  that we equip our children with as much prior knowledge so that when these topics come up in school they are able to discuss and contribute to classroom discussions. 

***Tip***- To save on lodging expenses,  you can stay in Arlington, VA, which is located right outside of Washington, D.C.

For us, a trip to the D.C. area is not completed without visiting Howard University
