As mentioned before, spring in Tucson is really nice.  And lucky for me, I got to experience everything in bloom at the Botanical Gardens last weekend!  Since I’ve started volunteering with the Udall Foundation’s Parks in Focus program, this was my first outing.  It was pretty laid back since this was in conjunction with Big Brothers Big Sisters, so every child had an adult with them.  For me though, it meant a very relaxing introduction to Parks in Focus and a fun morning looking at flowers.  I took a lot of pictures, but here are a few favorites.

I also had the opportunity to see Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in Concert last weekend.  I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but basically, it was just watching the movie in a giant concert hall, but all the music was performed live thanks to some sort of contract with the film company.   We sat in the very top, with only three rows above us, but it was still a lot of fun, and the conductor said at the beginning of the show to interact.  This, of course, meant cheering for your house when it was mentioned, and clapping for the orchestra at the end of exciting numbers. Also Tucson Music Hall is a really cool building, and I really liked being there.

With the school year coming to an end, I really haven’t done a lot else in the last couple of weeks, but I’m definitely looking forward to the summer.  So far I’ve made a packing list and attended a Health and Safety session about what to do in various worst-case scenarios from losing your passport to needing to go to the hospital.   Basically, that was the scare session, and the discussion session in April will be more focused on getting excited about the trip.  And, of course, today is  Easter, so I  celebrated by going to my church’s  7:30 service in the courtyard  followed by some community  service, brunch, and a big actual service.   The weather is lovely, and I’m really just enjoying the springtime.

Until next time ~
