Grinning from Ear to Ear

You can probably guess by the title of the post that I will be going to Vegas this summer. Two of my students qualified. One is going in Humorous and the other Oratory. On top of that Josh is going as well as he is the second Oratory to qualify. We'll be in Vegas June 14- 21. Woo Hoo!
It was so exciting today, I could hardly contain myself. I was very worried about oratory because it could have come out a bunch of different ways. I had two students in there as well as Josh. There were some other students from other schools that I knew had qualified in other events and would be going in those events. My students placed 1st & 2nd and Josh placed 3rd but since my 2nd place student chose to go in Humorous, Josh was bumped up. Now I just hope that his school will come up with the money to pay for him to go. If not, I think more letters will be written. I would think that a school could find the way to pay for a student to go to Nationals.
Well, we made it home and now I've got to figure out something for dinner. I'm tired after spending the day waiting and then driving home for two hours. I think I'll be calling it an early night. I have to sing at church tomorrow and need to be there by 10:00 for practice.

Congratulations! That sounds all very good! I hope you will find some time to relax in Vegas - and now too, seems to have been all exciting and exhausting. Again, congratulations to your son, your students, and you! You must have done something right ...

Hmmm...perhaps I will have to make a trip to Vegas in June to root them on and see exactly what it is you do!!
