I just wanted to let you all know my Daughter is on her 8th grade DC trip. It's ironic its on the weekend the possible government might shut down. But the Expedition History people assured me they have plan B in place if one venue is closed. (Like the Smithsonian or Capital Building).
Today the 8th grade class is leaving LAX at 7:50 am PDT on United Fl#950. They will arrive at Dulles Airport at 3:39 pm EDT. (12:39 pm PDT).
They will board a bus and travel to Williamsburg VA to visit Jamestown Settlement tomorrow.
