Again, I had another busy week, surprise surprise! My mentor teacher was gone for 3 days while she took her son up to the MTC. It was a really good learning experience for me. It was a little nerve racking, just for one day because while she was gone there was the District Secondary Choral Festival, and since my teacher was gone I got to be incharge and take our top girls to the festival. I was really nervous leading up to tuesday since I would be directing at the Mesa Arts Center in the gorgeous Ikeda theater, and in front of some big name choir teachers in the district. I survived and the girls did an amazing job. It was a wonderful experience for all us, and we learned so much.
Then this week, Lindsay and I bid farewell to our dear friend Kelly, who decided to ditch us and get married. We will miss our trips to Streamers with her, but I guess settling down is more important! Her reception was fun. She is in to reenacting, and so is her dashing new husband (who actually owns a top hot, how many people do you know that owns one?), and historical stuff, and so her dad totally incorporated that into the wedding video. They met at "This is the Place Park" where he is a tin smith (one of 13 in the country), and they did some filming there, it was great, and then they did some old fashioned dancing, it was so fun to watch. Their getaway vehicle was amazing, her dad works for the mesa fire department, so he was able to arrange getting the old fashioned fire truck for them. When I got home I told my dad that I want that, and since he is the vice mayor I think he has ways to arrange that for me, and so he informed me that I only have 2 years left, so I really need to start working on that! Afterward we went to Streamers to celebrate. We go so often the owner remembers us, it is so sad. Someday we will take a boy with us, because it is great fun.
Also this week was my sister Kimberly's Birthday. I made a totally awesome cake for her. She loves the piano, and so her cake was piano themed. I saw some cakes where they had taken white chocolate kit kats for the white keys and regular ones for the black keys of the piano. I wanted to do that, but I couldn't find any white kit kats, so my mom came up with the awesome idea to dip sugar wafer cookies into white chocolate. It turned out so cute, and delicious, but really rich because of all the white chocolate.
