The National Archives of the United States

I took this photo as we walked by on our way to the Jefferson Memorial.

National Gallery of Art

After the conference, John, Jack, and I took the train to Washington, D.C. We spent quite a bit of time at the National Gallery of Art, one of my favorite places.

This is the Vigin Annunciate made of painted wood by Pisan, c.1325-1350.

Tremont Grand

The Tremont Grand was the hotel where most of the conference sessions were held and about three blocks from the hotel where we stayed.

The Johns Hopkins University Campus

Johns Hopkins University

John and I returned from Baltimore earlier this week where I attended the RBMS Preconference . The sessions were held on the Johns Hopkins University campus one day of the conference.

These photos show Homewood, the door to one the buildings where I attended some conference sessions, and the JHU library (which doesn't look very impressive because most of it is underground).

2007 Oregon-Idaho United Methodist Scholarship and Award

I've been notified that I've been awarded the 2007 Oregon-Idaho United Methodist Ethnic Leadership and Scholarship Award. I am very honored to have received this and grateful for the help Pastor Sharon and her husband, Julian, gave me when writing my application.

Half-Way Mark

I had another class in Portland this week-end, the last one with most of the Oregon-7 cohort, as from here on out we'll be taking different classes based on our interests and the certificates we are seeking.

Perri brought us cake and orange juice to celebrate. Thanks, Perri!
