Yesterday we went all around the Wall Street area of New York. To get there, we took the train into Grand Central Station with our Uncle Mark. He guided us to Trinity Church which is where one of our historical heroes, Alexander Hamilton, is buried. After paying our respects and writing a prayer for our cousin JJ – we were off to find our boat to Lady Liberty. On our way to boarding the boat, we went through securit – like on a plane.

At the time it was just my sisters, my parents because our NY cousins were at school for a half-day. We still had home school, but it was only 45 minutes! I tell ya – I can get use to the home-school plan! It goes quickly when you’re self-taught. After we picked up our cousins from the bus stop [I had to walk

After we had our first RV breakfast we drove 10 minutes to Hershey Park. Yes, THE Willy Wonka Factory of TODAY! When we got to the factory we went on a tour.
