We spent a few days visiting friends in New Jersey and taking the train into NYC for some sightseeing.
Boy really enjoyed visiting with the other kids in New Jersey. Even though they were in school during the day, he had plenty of after school fun.
We hit the highlights of the city, with the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island (and another National Park Jr Ranger badge), Times Square, Rockefeller Center, the Natural History Museum, and a walk through Central Park. Mom and Dad got most excited by a stop at Holsteins Ice Cream in New Jersey with our friends, where the final scene of the Sopranos was filmed ;).
Schoolwork was still light this week, but will kick into high gear when we get to Europe. We wrote postcards daily, did a bit of reading on the Statue of Liberty, and of course did all the Jr Ranger work.
