Hello!

Today our producer, Eric, came up to the cast and said, "You're first show is in one week."

You could have heard a pin drop in that auditorium.

I'm not sure if people simply hadn't realized how close we are to actually performing or if they knew and were trying to avoid that formidable thought altogether.

I'm guessing it was a mixture of both.

We went through the entire show all day today and it will be same tomorrow (except with costumes!). We just need to practice, practice and practice some more. We are definitely getting there! Mom and Dad, you're in for a treat (providing you are bringing all of the items that we have talked about!) Just kidding :)

But seriously...I do need batteries, Dad :)

After a great but exhausting day, Helen and I headed home to our wonderful host family :) We are having a great time here! Tina had a great meal waiting for us and afterwards, we headed to a nearby park for National Neighborhood Day. It was great to see many neighbors out together! The Broomfield Police Department, Humane Society, Fire Department, and many others attended with booths promoting their services. Helen was especially interested in the helicopter that was flying around the area! It was such a beautiful night and wonderful to see so many people come together to celebrate their amazing community.

Kind of sounds like an UWP event, doesn't it? :)

On another note...

It's so bizarre that on July 10, 70 students came together from all over the world, not knowing a single thing about each other.

Now we have inside jokes, we can tell by the look on someone's face how he or she is feeling, and we feel a definite void if even one person is missing. We have become more than just a bunch of students trying to find our place in this world. We are a family hoping to make a difference.

It truly is amazing.

Yeah, we're totally ready for this :)
