1. We enjoyed the “unofficial” last weekend of summer with a beach trip to Lewes, DE. Just a couple hours’ drive from DC (when there’s not traffic), it’s a great destination for a weekend getaway, a longer stay, or even a day trip. Remember, there are still some official weekends left of summer to take advantage of! 😎
2. Tudor Place, the historic house and gardens in Georgetown, is bringing back its program for young learners ages 18 moths to 4 years. Tutor Tots returns this Friday, September 10, with a “Back to School”-themed session. It runs 10-10:45am, and cost is $20/table for non-members, $15/table for members — and right now you can use the promo code “Fallfun21” for a 20% discount on your ticket purchase. (PS: Tudor place also offers self-guided tours of the house and gardens, so make time for that, too. Our whole family has enjoyed them, even when the kids were little!)
4. Some great recommendations for Reading, Watching, & Listening. (This prompted me to start Jhumpa Lahiri’s Whereabouts, and it’s confirmation of why she’s one of my favorite authors…such a beautiful, uniquely written book.)
5. Funny not funny?
