Eighth-Grade Trips Sound Fun

My sister is on a trip to Europe with her daughter and classmates, for their eighth-grade trip. For ten days, they are traveling to Italy and Greece. I imagine they are having a blast.

My children all went to public schools so there were no exotic trips like they often have at the private schools. The Obama children will have trips like this one scheduled. It's one of those areas where there is truly a big difference between the publics and the privates.

When you talk to someone on a daily basis and then they cannot be reached for ten days, it seems like an eternity! Hurry home, little sister (and bring lots of pictures!).

I'm home and it was amazing but I truly did miss our daily conversations. Talk to you soon.

10 days in Europe for an eight grade trip?! Wow. I thought my kids' (public) school was going all out taking them to D.C. for a week. Of course we didn't fork over the dough since we just took them there last year anyway.

I wish I had gone to her school.

I think it would be hard for me too. I love my sisters and used to live further away. I hated it. haha
