We're in DC

We got into DC Saturday afternoon. We visited the American History and Natural History Museums, the Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial. Sunday night we had dinner with 8 OA-takers. They were all great. It was wonderful to finally meet my blogger friend, E, from NY. Her husband took the test with Jake today. This morning I took the metro to Pentagon City and walked around the Fashion Centre Mall. Then I spent an hour at the Holocaust Museum, and then met E at the Hirshhorn Museum and talked for 30 mins before I got a call from Jake saying he didn't pass. We are bummed but OK. This adventure just wasn't meant to be, I guess. We get home around 2:30pm tomorrow. Until then, we live it up in DC for one more night.

sorry to hear he didn't pass. I didn't actually think it was possible for Jake to not pass a test, but even the best and brightest miss a few sometimes.

Enjoy DC. A challenge! Go to the library of congress and see if you can find the copy of Postal "better times" that we had copyrighted in 1998 ;)

Oh, that's such a bummer! I am sorry! But I agree, he shouldn't give up. Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys!

Bummer indeed! Like Zach, I didn't think it was possible for Jake not to mass something -- it must have been a really really really hard test.

Is this something you guys will try again? I don't really know how any of this works or even what the test was all about. I hope you enjoyed your DC getaway! We hope to see you guys soon!

I really enjoyed meeting you. You are even more delightful in person than on your blog. I hope you had a safe trip home. I'm sure the kids are thrilled to see you!

Sorry Jake didn't pass the test. Things happen for a reason, even if we don't always see it at the time. (That is the story of our married life). But I know you guys are being blessed. I hope you have a good time in DC.

You guys are such troopers. But, what I have learned from ending up in Mexico for med school, is that where there's a will there's a way. Good luck to you guys!!
