Welcome to Katie's Travel Blog. This is really Jenny-doesn't-get-to-travel blog where I (mom) keep track of Katie's adventures so I can have some vicarious enjoyment! Here's a look at what one globally-aware kid from little Santa Cruz, California gets to do these days if her mom's willing to keep working!

Day 4: Wrapping Things Up with Presentations and JSA Graduation (and a Little Nostalgia)

Heard briefly from Katie last night. They were scrambling on their projects. I asked for a photo and the clever child sent me a picture of nothing. Yeah. Apparently they hadn't gotten very far. I told her to make Emelia do the talking but she said Emelia was on another team. Hopefully Em had a better project - maybe something photo-worthy.

Today the running around will be kept to a minimum.

No travel to Sacramento but they will be finishing their projects and presenting to one another. I wonder if Emelia will be a speaker! She's such an introvert (so's Katie but she can bite the bullet and get by - especially if she knows her content).

UC Davis - this place is the bomb.
I love that they have to walk over to Wellman every day. In the photo above, the yellow arrow near the top is the dorm, Bixby and the dining commons is just below that. The yellow arrow in the middle is Wellman. That's near the Quad and takes them into the heart of the campus. I don't know if it was intentional, but it sure must have made it feel more like they were college students.

Let's be clear, as a liberal arts undergrad, this is the only part of campus that mattered. All my classes were either in Olson or Young - both off the Quad. Sure there are some science buildings lying around and viticulture is way up by Mrak Hall now, but as long as you had the dorms, Quad, Coffee House and the MU (where hours of All My Children and General Hospital were watched in a dark basement TV room with at least a hundred viewers watching Jenny and Greg, Jessie and Angie and Luke and Laura), you were set. That's food, sun, drama, parties and sleep. Was there more going on in college?

Oh crap, but this isn't about me!

I pick them up around 2ish. I wonder if they made some new friends!?
