My niece had the opportunity to go to Washington DC for a month through a program called Summer Jam. She is 16 years old. Wow this so cool.. I wish I had an opportunity to do something like this when I was her age.. She is there to do volunteer work and hopefully meet people that she will stay friends with for the rest of her life. Last night she was watching the fireworks at the National Mall.. I am so jealous. That sounded so neat. I saw they took a bike ride around the DC, again I am so jealous.. I hope that she will take every opportunity to have a great time.
