4th of July in France

This blog entry is for People to People. It's the 4th of July and I'm in France.

I'm writing this because everyone who is part of People to People is supposed to write a blog entry or something about where they are on the 4th of July.

Everybody has a 4th of July but only the United States has 4th of July for our independence.

I'm part of People of People because my teacher nominated me for it. It is a leadership program where only student leaders who are nominated get to go. I'm going October 12, 2009 to Washington D.C. for a week. And this time I'm lucky, I'm going by myself. No grandparents taking care of me. I'm really looking forward to it. I can't wait.

Tomorrow's my birthday and I'm going to be eleven. Wow! That was fast. It seems like yesterday I was just in pre-school. Amazing.

Here is a picture of me in Arles, France.

Happy Birthday!! You look very handsome in the photo. Love the hat :)

How fantastic that your teacher nominated you to be part of People to People. Sounds like it will be a great learning and growing opportunity, and what fun to go to DC by yourself!

Casey, you look fantastic in that hat! Very mature. Happy birthday, and we'll talk when you come to DC in October!

Happy 11th Birthday to Casey!
And congratulations on being chosen for the Leadership group. You make the perfect candidate for that.
Enjoy your European holiday.

Happy Belated Birthday Casey. I'm so proud of you! Have a great time on your travels this summer. We just came back from Italy too. I miss it so much. Make sure to eat plenty of gelato for me. Ciao!
