Another short phone post because mom is hogging the computer. To see more info about her days, check out www.acupofstonesoup.blogspot.com.
Today has been a long day but wonderful. It her been a long time since I have been able to spend this much time with my mom and it has been really sweet. We got up early this morning and headed in to town since I sighed up for an 8:30am session. The closing plenary session was immediately afterwards and they announced - just as we hoped- that next year's conference will be in Atlanta. That is tons more convenient for numerous reasons so I hope that e can send some staff to this next year.
We had a good lunch of Chinese food in Chinatown and then spent the entire afternoon in the Newseum. I found it particularly interesting because many of the events highlighted were more recent events, not in my lifetime necessarily but things that I had more knowledge about.

Feet are tired but we are having fun. Dinner tonight with my friend that us hosting us at one of her favorite places...then more sightseeing tomorrow!
