Well we had to make alot of hard decisions this last week. We went to the first parent meeting about the New York trip and a few things did not sit right with me or my husband. Then we had another death in the family and other financial responsibilitys that made us rethink things. Carlie has been a trooper though this and made the decission to not go to New York at this time. She is going to go and spend 1-2 weeks with her Uncle in San Diego this summer. She has never been to a Zoo and her Uncle is looking foward to taking her. We are so proud of Carlie for this. I know it was hard. I just wanted to THANK all who gave and wanted you to know she was very grateful. She is going to us the money she got and take a class this summer in Spokane. she said that if God wants her in New York another door will Open. and Belive that too.
