Clara Barton's House

We visited Clara Barton's house in Glen Echo. The kids got to hear more about this very determined and compassionate young woman.

They have an online junior ranger program where the kids can pretend to be a Red Cross volunteer for a day and if you mail your completion certificate, or bring it with you when you visit, they give the kids a junior ranger certificate and badge.

They each got their arm wrapped up with a muslin cloth like nurses used to use.
Then we headed over to Glen Echo Park, but I'll have to tell you about that another time...
