The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. -Proverbs 1:7

Festival of Lights

 Instead of our normal Solstice routine, we decided to look at lights.  These are at the DC LDS Temple.

The fountain from opposite angles.

I was trying to get a good shot of the reflecting pool.  I don't have anything special for a camera and what I have doesn't do well at night.  I guess you will have to go there to see how beautiful this really is.

Obligatory (and not very cooperative) picture of the kids.  If you are wondering why Jac looks bigger than Alicia, it's because he is.  If you are wondering why he's wearing shorts a few days before Christmas, it's because it was 70 degrees today (and because he always wears shorts regardless of temperature).
There was also a "Creches of the World" display. 


Our local light show in Damascus.  This is the last year for it.  The people who live here are moving away and are taking their lights.  It's kind of sad, actually.  This final year includes a light show synced to a radio station.  Really cool.
