We had a really special treat. Jim and Michelene Barton came to visit for a whole week. It was just wonderful and I loved every single minute. They brought their 5 youngest children: Stirling, Rebekkah, Gabby, Ellee, and Matt. They toured and visited just about everything in DC and we went with them a couple of days. We saw the Library of Congress, which is one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. We went to Mt Vernon and spent a morning. We went to the Reston Zoo and the Dulles Space Museum. We went to dinner a few times and spent evenings enjoying their company, laughing and visiting. Stirling spent one evening out with the Assistants at missionary lessons. They said he was great- he'll be a great missionary. They are a wonderful family and I am so thankful that they are family. Washington Monument: Ellee, Jim, Matt, Michelent, Sterling, Gabby, and Bekkah.

Library of Congress.
The Gutenburg Bible: very moving. Written in 1405

Matt was fascinated. He loves history and kept a little notebook to write all about the things he saw. He wanted to see the Jefferson collection here at the library.
