We are all 5, Matthew, Emma and Meg (our daughters 13 and 10,) my mother and I, in our seats on Ethiopian Airlines about to depart Washington DC straight, nonstop, to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A 13 hour flight.
From Oklahoma City you must do a 16 hour layover to connect to the flight in DC to Ethiopia. So we decided to take an extra day and do the highlights in DC for our daughters. Perfect school, especially since we did American History this year.
