National Museum of the American Indian

We went to the National Museum of the American Indian. I thought it would be about Native American history and culture in North America only, but there are exhibitions on the indigenous peoples in North, Central and South America. 

I couldn't take any good pictures of the exhibits, it was very dim lighting. This is the kid's hands-on area. 

They could try kayak balancing and building an igloo.

Our new place to live for 6 months

Entryway (one of the cool archways)


This house was built in the early 1920s, and has a few renovated rooms. I love the old smell throughout the house, and the old light switches, the old windows and baseboards. There are a couple of rounded archways that you never see in houses anymore. 

Stairs into the basement

We use the dining room for our school room. Rock Creek park is a short walk down the street, and there's a fun playground close by. We are closer to downtown, so we'll go to the museums more often. It is a beautiful and peaceful neighborhood with nice neighbors. We are already enjoying living here.
