From Snow to Sun

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.

This fudge was to die for! YUMMY!

I think the fudge was the last purchase I made before getting back on the trolley.

FUNDAY!

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.

Teachers were invited on stage to receive a hug and a gift.  This year we got lapel pins.  Ennio always smells really yummy!  :)
