Well, I am unable to load pictures while I am at my parents house, but I figured I have a computer so I might as well give updates on how things are going.
Our flight here was AWESOME!!! Really I can't believe I am saying that ... I actually HATE flying. I think I have mentioned the details of that before. This was the inagural flight for WestJet to San Diego. They had so many free gifts for us. Evan and I were even lucky enough to sit next to the media spokesperson for West Jet. He loved Evan and we really had a good time talking with him. The best part of the experience was what met us at the terminal .... PENGUINS!!! It was awesome!
The next day was the main reason for this trip. My highschool director, Mr. Torns, retired after 35 years of teaching. The schools top groups performed their year end concert and after those performances (in which Mr. Torns got a standing ovation) there were 5 alumni from the 4 schools that he taught at gave tributes to him. I was the Mt. Carmel (his current school) representative. I spent a while working on the tribute for him because I wanted it to be special. I got emotional in the middle, but I kept myself together. Following my tribute we surprised him by introducing his son, who flew out from Louisiana. He got very emotional at that point. When everything was said and done the alumni were invited on stage to take a picture with Mr. Torns and then there was a reception held outside on the patio. Mr. Torns changed the course of my life with his musical influence. I love him, and owe him so much. It was such a special evening to be at, and even cooler because of how many people I got to see again.
Wednesday was a pretty relaxing day spent shopping with my mom. Who doesn't love that?
I am having a wonderful time in San Diego. I love being home.
