New York state of mind!

Internet Image

This is one of the most recognized images in the world, and one I will be seeing...soon!

This afternoon, three tour buses will depart Mayberry carrying the high school band and chorus for three fun-filled days in the Big Apple.  I am one of the 42 chaperones onboard.  Call me crazy, but I'm going!  All.Night.Long.  On a bus...with lots of teenagers.

Also going are Haley, Amy, and Faith, along with Ansley, Macey and lil Haley.  How could I let these gals go without me?!  No way.

The kids won't be performing anywhere while we are there, unlike the last band bus trip that MM and I took when Haley was in high school.  They will, instead, be participating in some workshops to sharpen their various skills.  Chaperones will be on their own in Times Square during the workshops...yay to that!

While in the "city that never sleeps," we will visit the 9/11 Memorial, enjoy a Radio City Music Stage Door Tour, visit Lincoln Center, China Town/Little Italy, take a boat tour, take a driving tour, AND see a Broadway play!  And walk our toes off!

I am hoping my BlogPress app will work (I deleted it/re-loaded/tested it last night and it worked); otherwise, I will only be posting via FB until we return home (tired) on Sunday.

All prayers for safe travel, sanity, and sore feet will be greatly appreciated!  And I also ask that all students behave, and not sneak out of the hotel, and get into trouble.  Amen.  TYVM.

Later, y'all!

AS a teacher, I chaperoned many places when I took the students places. Good luck my friend. These young people will be so excited and you chaperones will need a lot of stength. Going overnight in a bus, have fun Sandy and keep safe. See ya.

Wow. You are one adventurous (and brave) Grammie! A bus with a bunch of teens? I'm pretty sure I couldn't do it. But the NYC part sounds like a blast... and there will be precious memories made with your girls.

Prayers for everything wonderful!

I'm sure there was lots of giggling. Lol! Have fun! It'll be cool to see it through their eyes.
