Just as wonderful as all the sights we saw in New York were the patience and kindness with which every person on the trip approached each funny situation we found ourselves in. I felt a lot of pride in Northside when despite seemingly endless delays, short-notice cancellations, and trips to McDonalds, our morale stayed akin to our Heritage Festival scores: deserving of five squillion plaques and trophies. We got along so well, and considering the conspicuously low priority of sleep in the trip itinerary, I think that says a lot about us. Northside rules.
Thank you Mr. Park, Mr. Lill, Ms. Martinez, and all of the parent chaperones!

We anticipate a 5:30 pm - 6 pm arrival time. I will post an updated arrival time once we reach Cleveland, Ohio.
Our apologies for any inconvenience we're causing. We understand that your children need to be ready and rested for school on Tuesday. We'll get them home safely and as quickly as we can.

It is 2:10 am (EST). We've transferred passengers and luggage to a new bus and anticipate departure in about 15 minutes. En route, we will have to make a few extra stops to accommodate a couple more bus changes.
Once we get a handle on time frame, I'll be sure to update you via blog entry.
It is almost midnight (EST). Unfortunately, we are stuck in New Jersey right now because one of the buses is currently being repaired. As soon as I am informed of a projected departure time, I will let you know via blog entry. As it looks right now, we more than likely won't arrive in Chicago until after 12 pm.
Please continue to check the blog for updates.

Our Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble just won the Adjudicator's Award (average score of 92 and above out of 100 from the judges)! Good job!
Five students were also awarded and recognized for individual talent, skill, and prowess, and as you can see, our very own Linnea Scott is up there! Great job Linnea!
Our orchestra also just won the Outstanding Orchestra Award! Good job Orchestra!
I am blogging all this live and in real-time, I hope to have better pictures and a better summary later!

We just won the Sweepstakes for Instrumental Division Award, being the closest to 200 points (a perfect score)! Great job to the orchestra, band, and jazz ensemble (who also won awards in their various categories)!

PS - The trophy was too big to take a whole picture of, so here is the label!
