Hail To The Chief

It’s President’s Day!

As we stop to think about all of the trials and tribulations of our presidents, think about this: Which president do you look up to the most?  Why?

Take a few minutes to think about that and then let me know by leaving your reasons below.

Washington, here we come!

Posted by David Fisher on 11th January 2011

Washington DC is about to be bombarded by the annual Palm Beach County Safety Patrol trip.  Approximately 1500 students, over the course to two weekends, will board an Amtrak train in West Palm Beach and ride north to our nation’s capital.

For the students this is a once-in-a-lifetime trip.  Traveling with their teachers, staying in a super hotel, and touring the sites for three days certainly beats spending that same amount of time in school and at home with the family.  What makes this trip even more special for some of our kids is that it may be their introduction to snow.  Yes, that frozen water concoction that drives motorists crazy all winter becomes a thing of beauty to a 10-year old from Florida.  It’s a sight to behold the throwing of a first snowball, followed by the return smack of receiving that first snowball.

If your child is joining me on this trip, and you would like to see some of the pictures taken by me and some of the other chaperons, check back here Friday night around 10 PM.  By that time I hope to have a link posted here for the pictures.

Until then, parents, enjoy your time with the rest of the family, or perhaps yourselves.

We’ll see you Monday!
