One of the things I love the most about living in NYC is getting to see the reactions of people experiencing Manhattan for the first time. It really is an awe- inspiring place with so much to see and do it is impossible to even scratch the surface on a three day trip. My former high school where I taught at, Gloucester High School, arrived last Thursday and did their very best to squeeze in as many activities as possible in three days. I would say that they were incredibly successful! I can only imagine that there were some pretty tired kids and some worn out feet on the bus ride home =) It was wonderful to be able to spend some time with a great group of teens and some cherished friends. There really is nothing better than getting lost in the energy and excitement of the chatter about New York, it reminds me of how truly lucky I am to live in such a special place. Thanks for letting me hang out with you- GHS music gang, you are an awesome group and you also made me remember how fortunate I was to teach at the beyond awesome GHS. Go Gators! (Here are just a few pics from their MANY adventures, I could barely keep up!)

Yesterday the girls had a half day of school due to parent teacher conferences. They wanted to do something “fun” so we planned a trip to go and see The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. Here are some pics that I took on our walk to and from the famous aircraft carrier. Hope you enjoy our latest adventure…
