I just knew that three days on the road would provide me lots of blog fodder.
I kept waiting for something to happen.
Something so incredibly funny that liquid would shoot from your nose when you read it.
We didn't lose anyone.
No one threw up.
We didn't miss any exits.
No one got stuck on an elevator.
No flat tires.
No food poisoning.
Actually it was completely perfect.
Other than departing an hour late, and my seat not reclining.
The bus driver did a fine job.
The kids were well mannered and polite.
The adults were enjoyable.
The food was incredible.
So Wendi, why are you writing this boring little post?
To let you know that I learned a lot on my trip.
Some of it personal.
Some of it I will share.
I learned that there really are some good kids in this world.
There are some parents who are teaching their children to be fine, upstanding citizens.
With good manners and high moral values.
I learned that when you expect things to go one way, sometimes they go the other.
And you are pleasantly surprised.
I came away from this trip with a new appreciation for the kids of today.
They will certainly be faced with a lot.
These are uncertain times.
But I have much more faith in them.
I saw the world through their eyes for a few days.
I saw excitement.
If this is what our future looks like....we are going to be just fine.
