Last Day in Washington, D.C.!

Sadly, this was the last day of our trip. First, I got to have an interview with none other than David Archuleta from American Idol. He was super nice and so cute! I even got to meet his aunt. She was wonderful. I was feeling her ring because I love to feel jewelry. She gave it to me!! I cried! They said that we would keep in touch!! Then, I met Senator Sessions; he was so nice and even gave me a coin with the state capital on it. He even let me hold the National Championship helmet of Alabama’s victory. I even got to meet Mrs. Sessions. After this, we got to visit the White House. We got to tour all around. Of course, we had to go through lots of security but it was worth it. The house was gorgeous. They had different colored rooms!! Then came the most exciting thing of all. We got to meet President Obama himself. I even carried on a conversation with him and he knelt in front of me and shook my hand! Finally, we got to go to the Nationals game. To our surprise, we walked in on a red carpet and got trophies and a backpack full of National things. After dinner we got to meet Screech and Mickey Mouse. I got to meet some new friends: Joshua, Sam, Danielle, Sando, McKenzie, Wyatt, Brooke, Paige, Katie, Emily, Sarah, Ramonie, Landon and so many more. We got to stay for the National game where the Nationals won against the Pirates seven to five. Sadly, however, we must get packed to come home. I sure will miss all my friends and the gatherings we got to do thanks to Walmart, Sams Club, and CMN. Thank you for making this such a memorable trip. I will definitely look forward to getting to see everyone again in November. I hope that I have met some friends that I can keep in touch with forever!!
