Sean got back home this morning at 1:00am from his first trip to Sea Camp in the Florida Keys. He left on Friday at 6:45am.
The trip was sponsored by his school, and there were 45 students and five chaperones. Sean has been looking forward to this trip all year, and he has worked hard in his classes to ensure that he would be able to go. Our deal was that as long as he remained on honor roll, he would go. It cost $550.00 for him to go, and it was worth every penny to see him as excited as he was about it. It was an all-inclusive trip, so it was a great deal. He loves marine animals, so this was the perfect trip for him. They went snorkeling, swimming with sharks, sailing, wading, and lots of other fun activities. I have no doubt that he'll be going again next year.
I've included a couple of pictures that Sean took while he was there. He didn't get nearly as many as I had hoped for, but I know that he was more interested in doing the activities than taking pictures. The site for the camp is
