Carowinds Choral Festival

Saturday, I went with Alyssa and our neighbor, Naomi, to Carowinds with the Honor Choir for the Carowinds Choral Festival.
We had a lot of fun (except for the hour long line at one of the rides!). They did a fantastic job singing. An eighth grade chorus went on before them and were not nearly as good as our choir of 4th – 6th graders! They rated a superior! Great job, girls!

Culture Quote: Teens with televisions in their bedrooms eat worse, exercise less and get lower grades than their peers who aren't as tuned in, according to a recent study from the University of Minnesota. Researchers found that the 62% of teens who have a TV in their bedrooms watch it four to five hours more per week than the 38% who don't. "It really clearly points out that there's some merit to not allowing your child to have a TV in the bedroom," says Daheia Barr-Anderson, one of the study's researchers. [Reuters, 4/7/08 stats, c&e]
