First, we enjoyed a fun trip to Alexandria for sushi and drinks before catching the pre-Broadway run of the new musical Mean Girls at the National.
On Saturday, Kenny came to cheer on Abigail in her last soccer game, in which the girls won(!) but we don't keep score. The game was awesome; the girls had so much energy and did a lot of passing and were more aggressive than they were all season. I am not sure if Kenny is their good luck charm or if not having 5 subs on a team that can only play 5 kids at a time was our winning strategy. (I kind of suspect it was not having subs: the kids get bored and unfocused when they have to sit for 50% of every game.)
After that, we went on a short hike at Government Island and got caught in the rain, which was still fun.
Additionally, the kids "helped" Kenny prepare some of his vials for his big "science fair" at NIH in Bethesda. They were super impressed that Kenny is a Very Important Scientist and he taught them how to use the pipette correctly.
