Monday, we got to spend the day exploring the Federal government. First thing in the morning, we went on a tour of the Pentagon.

I can't believe I'm on my last few days here in D.C.! This past week has been absolutely great, with tours of the Capitol and the Pentagon as well as our final presentations this past Friday.

This was quite a week! Monday began early: a 7:15am arrival to the Pentagon, for our 8am tour. Since our group was so large, we had a tour guide all to ourselves. He was very impressive, and inspired me to walk backwards on all tours that I now give.

The beginning of week eight marked the beginning of 'crunch time.' The science jamboree and SPS Goddard tour Kirsten and I were to lead were Thursday, the SPS Intern Symposium was the week after, and the NASA Goddard summer intern poster session was to be the Thursday after that.

I have mixed emotions about this week. It has been a very fun-filled week. It has also been a sad week because it was the last week of the middle school science teachers summer institute. I have developed a strong relationship with the teachers and I am sad to see them go.

Looking back, I'm always amazed how much we manage to pack into each week. Last Tuesday, I ended up at Bill Nye's "The Lure of Europa" event; a talk he was giving at the Rayburn house office building, courtesy of the Planetary Society.

This weekend was a blast. Saturday was a day spent by the Georgetown waterfront. For most of the day we rented kayaks and went around the Potomac River. We explored a little 'island' we found, and I got sufficiently sun-burnt (even though I put on sunscreen).

This has been a big week for me personally. After years of training, and months of back-breaking, nerve-wracking searching, I have a teaching job. I am the newest math teacher at Van Buren High School in Van Buren Arkansas.

I took the 12th of July pretty slow; slept in, made a big breakfast, and didn't leave the apartment until about 1pm. I headed out to the International Spy Museum, which was quite fun!
