Tavis in DC, per Tavis

Picked up my boy tonight.  It was good to see him, but it was also good to hear how much he enjoyed the trip. He said it was incredible!

The first thing he did when he got home was have a bowl of cereal. Ha! He said no cereal was offered all week.

They went to DC for five days and then up to Gettysburg the last two days, so the trip home took 11 1/2 hours.
He was tired, but not too tired to talk my ear off the whole way home.
They did so many great things, but he seemed to like walking the battlefields of Gettysburg the best. We gave him an old iPhone to have to play games on the bus ride and take pictures as he wanted.  This is DC, via Tavis...

He said church gave him a headache because they were burning incense.
He also said he woke up with swollen eyes each morning because the pillows were feathers (his only allergy) but it was a small price to pay for incredible comfort. DUH!

Tavis and Josh being goofy, in their new "controversial" hots.

 He also said the war memorial was extremely moving and a somber experience.

 When we decided to give Tavis the iPhone (about four hours before he left), we couldn't find any old cases. I assumed the phone would come back broken. Apparently, he bought this case:
 And these were his other tokens of tourism
Glad to have him home, but so, so glad he got to experience this trip. Especially, with such an awesome class and great group of chaperones.

Apparently, sleeping on the bus attracted pictures...
 and selfies.
