May 3

Today I got to visit another two schools in one when I spent the morning with the Riverside Public Schools—both the Spalding and Cedar Rapids campuses! Not only did I enjoy two shows with a bunch of great kids from both schools, I even got a private tour of the older school building in Spalding. I was especially impressed by the gymnasium in the basement. How cool is that?
After a tasty Riverside lunch (plus a quick wardrobe change), the last stop of my brief Nebraska tour was at Central Valley Elementary in Scotia, NE—home of the Cougars! Even though the two groups were larger and I was in the gym this time (this one wasn’t in the basement), I decided to go unplugged, as it were. Hey, if I blow my voice out now, I have the entire drive back to Texas to recover!
Thanks to Mrs. Nordhues and Mrs. Shafer for inviting me. Thanks to Mr. Adams for the tech support. Thanks to all the teachers who were kind enough to take pictures. And the biggest thanks of all to the great kids at Riverside and Central Valley. All combined, you were the great way to end my first trip to Nebraska!
No, I’m not about to sneeze; I’m rockin’ out!
