After a ten hour bus ride and a one hour shopping spree at Kroger, we got to Myrtle Beach at about 1:15 AM on Thursday morning. By the time everyone got luggage and groceries into our condominiums, and the chaperones made sure the students were all in their rooms, we got to bed at about 3 AM. We woke up at 7 AM and had a nice day at the resort yesterday before going to the Hard Rock Cafe for supper and Ripley's Aquarium.
Our resort has six swimming pools and a huge stretch of oceanfront beach. So, when we are at the resort, the chaperones all spread out and watch kids swim. Some of the chaperones are slightly pink today and some of the kids are red. One girl who fell asleep on the the beach wins the Red Lobster award for worst sunburn ever.
Here's a photo of Joshua in the ocean yesterday. What you don't see here are the three girls who were with him.
Here are some of our students playing football on the beach, with some of the parents cheering for them - and watching out for the kids in the water.
Last night we all got a full night's sleep, so we're ready for the three concert bands and two jazz bands to compete today. Joshua is playing in the three concert bands and one of the jazz bands. His chops are going to be so sore he probably won't be able to talk this evening.
