This morning, Courtney left for Washington DC with her school. She was one of 45 students picked out of a class of 500 to go to Washington. The main reason for the trip is to do the March for Life walk to be held tomorrow. Today they did a 1 1/2 hour walking tour of the monuments, then at 3pm they will be going to the Holocaust museum. Tonight they have a nice dinner at their hotel (Marriott) and then a chance to go swimming at the hotel pool. Tomorrow morning they wake up for breakfast, then begin the 3 mile walk. They head "home" tomorrow night, but because they get in so late (11pm), they will go directly to Kellenberg to spend the night (at the retreat rooms). They go to classes on Wed. and will return home after a full day of school.
Courtney had some reservations about going, she was VERY concerned about being so far away from Mike. She was concerned if something happened, she would be too far away. I told her she had to go, this was a once in a lifetime chance. I know she will have a good time. She MUST live her life to the fullest and not worry about what's going on at home.
