Visitors #5 and #6

November is National Novel Writing Month (#NaNoWriMo), but instead of writing pages of a novel every day this month, I thought I’d try to catch up on the blog. 🙂

Mid-November 2018 brought visitors #5 and #6 to DC. This time, it was two former students turned friends of mine: Karla and Llayra!

These two were in one of my pre-AP English II classes way back in 2013. I wish I could find the pictures of them acting out chapters of Bless Me, Ultima. So. Great.

Anyway, we had a great time over the weekend. We did some traditional DC stuff like the National Mall, monuments, and the Newseum.

And thanks to Karla, we also caught Beetlejuice in its pre-Broadway preview.

We also ate a ton of junk, the girls did some shopping, and we spent each night watching random animated movies on Netflix. Cars 2 and the Scooby Doo movies stick out in my memory. 🙂


All in all, I think they had a fun time, and I LOVED having them here. One perk of teaching high schoolers is that it takes much less time for your students to grow up and become adults you want to be friends with. Come back any time, ladies!

Make this place beautiful,
