Another ASHA Convention

Julie Andrews was fabulous. She accepted an award from John and Annie Glenn (yes, they were there too!) then she talked for about 15 minutes. She was so eloquent and elegant.

Wicked! was wonderful. I want to fly up into the air like she does at the end of Act 1. I really, really liked it.

Chicago was cold and busy and fun. Our students are fun and fabulous. It was all good!

One week from tonight I will be at a performance of Wicked in Chicago. I am very excited about the show. I enjoy the convention that is the real reason for the Chicago trip but the highlight of the trip should be Wicked. Oh, did I mention that on Friday night I will be seeing Julie Andrews!!! She is the special guest speaker at the awards ceremony. It will be a great convention!

Teary But Not Blubbering

These are out of order and I don't know how I managed to do that! However, it was everything that she and Nate planned it to be and then some!

I did tear up a time or two but I did not blubber which is a good thing because I did not have a tissue or handkerchief. The kilts looked so great in the photos and the bagpiper was amazing! I loved each song he chose and did not sound too loud for me but a child or two cried at the noise. The flowers were perfect...and the ones in Reagan's hair were so lovely.

The reception was just want we wanted and my family (sister, Debbie and niece, Stephanie) along with my friends (Vivian, Tammie, Jeanine, Keri, Dan and Jessica) were so wonderful to keep the food flowing. The only reception trauma was that the chocolate fountain would not fount! It melted the chocolate but it would not flow (got a refund on Monday!).

God's in His heaven and all's well in my world.
