Through the fog and over the ice

Welcome back from our commercial break to this wonderful little ditty that is being typed in a moving vehicle.

Just on our way back from the K-state UNL swing in Lincoln, and what a super weekend it was. We laughed, we cried. We won. I'm do pleased to be part of a team that is passionate about what they do. Not to mention this community. I mean, holy crepes, they're fascinating and I know with a good degree of certainty that these are the people that will change the world. Straight up make a difference. For instance, Jose. He's from Hastings and I'm impressed every time I talk to him about the things that he works to do with his community. You go Jose.

Let's see, other things going on..... Choir tour is in less than a week. I have music to memorize. But I don't have any of it with me for this lovely little ride. So there's that. But we get to leave Minnesota for some lovely weather in California, New Mexico, and Arizona. Pretty ideal if you ask me. So what up world! Bad news is that I have to be packed for that by tomorrow so they don't have to pay baggage fees. Guess I should figure out that nonsense. I hope I remember my contacts-unlike what I did this weekend..... Performing blind. Easy when it's just you. Harder when you have to follow a director. Woof.

Well I think I'll wrap some things up here. I have assumed the role of keeping Cadi awake on this drive. Per usual.

Yee Haw!


Ok, making a commitment to keeping up a blog.. Difficult. STILL TRYING.

That's the thing where Hell Froze Over in Peoria, Illinois.  It's basically a giant tournament where a ton of schools and speech kids gather in one place and battle to the frozen death.  A rough sport but someone's got to do it. The team did relatively well, considering the 1,000+ entries and the 40 some odd schools. Placing 5th day 2 is not too shabby at all. Super proud of the little baby team.

Additionally, there was a trophy for that portion that should be mentioned.

HFO is hosted by Bradley University and University of Texas at Austin.  UT Austin are the Long Horns. So what did we get? Yup. Some Long Horns. Which are now mounted above the door in the team room. Class act.

And now I have to get back to work.

The End.
