Cut! That’s a wrap.
Wow! It’s hard to believe that our week together has come to an end. I have had such a fun week getting to know our beloved students in new ways, watching them fail and try again, persevere and, finally, succeed. I am stuffed to the gils with tasty food. I am tired but content. I have a feeling (I asked two or three students) that the Sophomores are feeling the same way, but magnified x 1000.
Today the students finished workshop #2. The stakes were high. Dustin and his crew had to crank out some big time culinary treasures. I made sure to do a taste test of the sushi before they put it on the platters (tough job, someone had to do it). There were last minute welds being made. Last minute lines on drawings. Last minute stitches. Finishing touches on performances. Yet, frenetic it was not. The energy was up with positive excitement in the air.
After the workshops concluded, the students got to work setting up the dining room for our lovely dinner. From art displays to sushi prep to table setting, they did it all. That seems to be an emerging theme, no?
And then it was time to reunite with families, enjoy the fruits of our labor, and celebrate with friends at dinner.
Congratulations and many thanks to all of our Sophomores and their families, the artists, and the faculty and staff here at Gould for a fabulous week and night!
See you all next year!
