Sorry it has been almost a month since I last blogged, but the days seems to run into each other quite easily on the road. I'm already in Texas, where we have been since Friday and will be for the rest of the week. It was incredibly warm yesterday (95 degrees!) in San Antonio but now it has cooled down to a more seasonable 65.
The shows have been going really well. We've been playing to an average of 800 kids daily, generally ranging from 500-1500. The response from the kids has been really great, they all seem to really enjoy the show and really get something out of it.
We don't do much sight seeing, mostly because after a show we generally just want to get to the next city (some of the drives are mighty long) and relax. On the weekends I have made it a point to at least see the cities we've been in a bit.
Two weekends ago we were in Miami Beach which was really nice. The weather was great and I got to go and see the beach. I was shocked at how warm the water was. The last time I was in Florida was almost 12 years ago so I don't really remember much about it. Here is a picture of the water and one of me on the beach in South Beach. (Like my hair flying up? Yea it was windy)
Something cool that happened last week was the total lunar eclipse. We were in Tallahassee and we had a wonderful view of it from our hallway of our motel since we were on the second floor. We got some pretty good shots of the moon going into the eclipse but we then had to get to bed so we didn't see the end of it. Still, a really neat experience.
Today we were in San Antonio and so after the show we decided to head on over to the Alamo. It was really interesting to see the actual structures that are still standing from the famous battle. They have a lot of the artifacts that used to belong to Davy Crockett. Here I am in front of the Alamo.
Anyway that's pretty much it for right now. I've avoided getting sick thus far (knock on wood) and I'm really happy with the performances. I'm excited to get closer to California where I have most of my people coming. Thanks for all your well wishes everyone.
