Summer is headed to New York City!

Doing well in school has it's advantages!
Through the ALP program (Advanced
Learning) at Summer's school, she gets the
opportunity to head to New York City over
Spring Break 2011. It will cost her $1669,
so the fundraising will soon begin. She has
always been an awesome student, and I am
so thrilled that she gets to visit one of my
favorite places in the whole world! They call
it a Subway Tour, since they will only travel on
foot and via the subway. She will be immersed
in the NYC culture...which couldn't be farther
from our Arizona lifestyle. I've always thought it
would be fun to live in Manhattan for a couple
years. Maybe Sydney will decide to go to Juilliard
and we can visit her often. :0) As for now, it's
Summer's turn. Here is her basic itinerary:
Day 1 -
Take a walking tour of Midtown:
Fifth Avenue
Rockefeller Center
St. Patrick's Cathedral
Trump Tower

Visit the Empire State Building by night
Day 2 -

Take a guided tour of New York:
Times Square
Central Park

Greenwich Village and SoHo
World Trade Center Site

Visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Attend a Broadway Show!!!
Day 3 -

Take the subway to Battery Park
Visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
Walk the Brooklyn Bridge and explore Chinatown and Little Italy
Day 4 -

Take the subway to the Upper West Side
Visit the American Museum of Natural History
Depart for home

***Anyone want to make a small contribution?
Summer will be willing to bake you cookies,
babysit, wash your car, anything to make a
few bucks toward her trip. Thanks!!!***

Maybe Summer should open her own Etsy shop during this time. She could make things, bake cookies, sell vintage - just a thought. It might be fun for her to have her own shop and that way your friends and family could easily donate through PayPal.
