As of Wednesday, January 9, 2019 there has been no budget agreement and most of the federal government is shut down. They've done it again, those blessed legislators of ours: they've shut down the government while somebody tries to convince them to pay for a great big wall. So what if you're in DC and you're looking for something to do?

This has loads fo good info on logistics for Art on the Ave.

I hope to see you there! Let me know if you are in the neighborhood!

If there's pumpkin spice in the air and scarecrows loitering on street corners, it must be time to get ready for Art on the Avenue, coming this Saturday, October 6th from 10am-6pm. It'll be a day filled with art, music, food and fun. Here are a few notes to help your day go smoothly:
--Mt Vernon Avenue will be closed to traffic from Bellefonte to Commonwealth.
--Closures will begin early Saturday for festival set-up.
--The one block east and west of Mt. Vernon from Bellefonte to Commonwealth will be blocked off. Residents on those blocks can come and go, but no one will be able to cross the Avenue.
--Expect all streets to be reopened by 8pm.
--Delivery drivers might have some trouble getting around on Saturday. If you live near the center of things, you might want to wait till the streets reopen to order pizza delivery.
--Bus service (10A, 10B, AT10) will be rerouted along Monroe and Commonwealth to bypass festival blocks.
--Special Art on the Avenue trolleys will be running from Braddock Road Metro to the south end of the Festival (Bellefonte).
--There is NO farmers market in Del Ray this week. For your market fix, give Old Town a try or wait till Sunday for the Four Mile Run Farmers & Artisans Market up the block.
--There is also NO compost collection in Del Ray on Saturday. Food waste will be collected Saturday at the Old Town market and on Sunday at the Four Mile Run market.
--Musical performances will be taking place on several stages along the Avenue. If you live nearby, expect a little extra noise on Saturday.
--Del Ray stores and restaurants will open during the festival, so please make the effort to support our local businesses.
--MANY, MANY visitors, vendors and volunteers are expected in Del Ray for Art on the Avenue. Some of them will be looking for parking, so expect things to be especially "cozy" on Saturday.

Have a happy Art on the Avenue!

3 Reasons Your Military Kids Don't Need Roots...and Why They're Better Off

As my family is getting closer to establishing roots, I am going to do my best to make sure my kids’ vines are still strong.

I have to add that there is also a huge group of kids attached to the foreign service that never get this kind of military kid recognition. Many of those kids go through more transitions than military kids.

If you have ever found yourself standing in the middle of drop-off at a new school, blinking away tears while a sea of strangers swallows up your children, wishing you could stop putting your kids
