A Few Final Washington, DC Reminders...

Can you believe that the trip is only ONE DAY AWAY!  24 Hours from now we will be somewhere in the middle of West Virginia, about halfway to Washington, DC!

Parents, if you haven't checked out our "photoblog" yet, you can find it at simmonstodc.tumblr.com.  The password for the website is the name of the COUNTY that you live in (it needs to be in all lowercase letters).

Also, we've put together a list of MUST HAVES and REMINDERS for the trip, and here they are:

~ Please pack Simmons/UK Blue Shirts (BLUE CLOTHING FOR ALL DAYS!)
  - Two T-Shirts; one for each day
~ Get ready for LOTS of walking
~ Comfortable shoes/EXTRA Pair if possible!
~ Looks like good weather! (60s 70s all day!)
~ Bring a light jacket for when you're outside/inside
~ You are responsible for your OWN clothing/carry on bag
~ Pack NICE clothes for Capitol Building (Jeans or Khaki Shorts that come to the knees) NO SHORT SHORTS!
~  "Toiletries" (Toothbrush/toothpaste/deodorant/shampoo/soap are a MUST!)
~ Pajamas for Wednesday and Thursday nights in the hotel
~ Something comfortable to wear (NOT PAJAMAS) on the ride back Friday night
~ Some sort of "drawstring" bag or tiny backpack to carry for the entire trip
~ Use good judgment with your MONEY!
~ ONE Clothing bag for UNDER the BUS
~ SACK SUPPER for Tomorrow evening.  We're not stopping at a restaurant.  You must bring a meal for tomorrow night!
~ Small pillow/Blanket FOR THE BUS
~ Small and QUIET devices on the bus w/ Headphones
~ If Mr. Piercey can hear you... ITS TOO LOUD!
~ Make sure the games/music are APPROPRIATE!

Phew! I think that's it.  If you want to see the map one last time of our trip, it's here (please click to see)
