|A Smithsonian Museum|
My kids have been back in school for a week and a half now, but it still doesn't feel like we've built a routine. We've had all sorts of little things pop up that are not going to be on our schedule for the rest of the semester.
So, in the spirit of helping you prepare for the weekend. Just a reminder that the Greenbelt Labor Day Festival is coming up this weekend. If you--or your children--want to do the carnival rides for half price, be sure to stop by the Greenbelt Coop to pick up a $12 voucher for an all-you-can-ride wrist ban valid on Saturday or Sunday. Vouchers are on sale until Noon Friday. Don't wait, because wrist bans cost $25 once the festival starts. The Coop is located at 121 Center Way Dr. in Greenbelt.
Also, you can get free tickets to local museums on Sept. 29 through Museum Day!, a program of the Smithsonian. To sign up for free tickets, go to the website: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday/. Tickets need to be ordered in advance. Participating museums include favorites like the Newseum, National Building Museum and Chesapeake Children's Museum. A complete list is on the website. You get 2 tickets per e-mail address, so families will need a few house members to pitch in and get enough tickets.
That's it for me, today.
