I was working on a different post for today. But today I’m in the convention center in downtown Denver, where Lizzie is in the midst of three days of rehearsals for the Colorado All State Choir.The snow is floating outside the giant wall of windows in front of me, and I’m watching the construction workers negotiate the slick steel of the new building going up across the street. It’s very very distracting.
Then again, I'm the one who will sit and watch a bulldozer all morning long, so maybe it's just me.
This is the view from the hotel window. Isn't it amazing? Well, it probably looks better in person. I wish I could get the camera to focus on the giant snowflakes -- they're gorgeous! I could watch this view and listen to the choir all day.
Which is good, because it’s likely what I’ll be doing. Except eventually I'm going to have to go outside and open a Diet Coke. Because I'm pretty sure if a certain someone in the choir heard the sound of a pop can being opened in the room... well, they might be missing a second alto for a few minutes.
No matter how old you are, field trips are still awesome, and your mom can still embarrass you.
What a great day!
