We’ve been on the bus all night with some pit stops along the way. Everyone is tired and tired of being on the bus. Youth Tour was great, but now everyone is just excited to get home and see their loved ones. The hardest part about today is saying goodbye to all our friends. Hopefully we will see each other again…maybe at camp this summer, school next year or even college. We hug each other with the promises of staying in touch. Now we can’t wait to tell our loved ones about our exciting week of adventure. Each and every individual made this trip special for one another. Before we reach Baton Rouge, the chaperones were presented a memory book signed by all the delegates. Then each of the chaperones said a little something special to the kids. It was a great trip! A trip of a life time! A trip that will make us better citizens and community leaders! 2009 Youth Tour Rocks!!! PARTY!!!!!!!! And it truly was a party.
Here’s what today’s bloggers have to say:
Evan is Beauregard’s delegate:
Her favorite part of the day was watching Matt and Julie stay up until 7:30 a.m. this morning. Listening to their conversations was HILARIOUS.
Her least favorite part of the day was when her legs kept falling asleep. We’ve been riding the bus since last night.
Today’s activities taught Evan she learned that EVERYONE, at some point needs a shoulder to lean on, and to sleep on…especially when on a bust all night.
Evan would like to say to her loved ones back home hello to her dear mother…I’m Ready to be home! PARTY!!!!
David is DEMCO’s delegate:
His favorite part of the week was the day we toured the museums. His group had a lot fun.
His least favorite part of the week was all the walking.
The whole experience has taught David that he can be away from home a long time and be alright, and that he can also make new friends fast.
David would like to say to his loved ones back home that he will see you in a couple hours.
