I have just returned from three weeks of travel in the USA. My husband ran the New York Marathon which is a “marathon effort” for him, having run the 42 kilometres (or 26.2 miles) five times now. After leaving New York we spent over a week in Washington DC visiting the Smithsonian Museums and the Library of Congress. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time viewing the priceless art collections. I particularly liked standing in front of the portraits in the National Portrait Gallery and wondering about the lives the people led so long ago. The photo of the three bears sculpture is a special gift for our Prep students. Which picture is your favourite?
