Most of my friends are aware that the ACTFL conference is happening this weekend. I am delighted to be in San Diego with my daughter. Once my presentation is done tomorrow, my stress level will be so much lower!
I was lucky enough to have a friend (Lila) attending as well. It was so nice to reconnect and have someone else to keep a sharp eye on my teen! Lila was great as a navigator, so I let her go…and stayed close! She encouraged me to get checked in today instead of waiting the madness tomorrow morning would bring. I’m so glad I did! Now I can get up and go straight to a session in the morning. I might even make it to the keynote speaker’s address.
Since Lila and I arrived early this morning, we decided to ride the trolley (Green Line) to Old Town. Bela and I were happy to see some of the city. The first order of business in Old Town was FOOD! We were starving. I’m a slow eater, but we finally made it to the market area across the street.
I think the fudge was the last purchase I made before getting back on the trolley.
Early this week I was able to take a few students (and one incredibly cool parent sponsor) to Ennio Emmanuel’s Spanish language concert. The annual tour is put on by the Justo Lamas Group. I look forward to it all year long! There is always a positive message for students, and lots of students get to sing, dance or play instruments on stage with Ennio.
Justo and Ennio have both taken time after the 90-minute funfest to sign autographs and take pictures with everyone.
