Dreamers Tour USF (Tampa, FL.)

Our Dreamers participated in our annual end of year college tour on July 26 and 27th.  This year we spent two days in Tampa, FL. to visit the University of South Flordia.  As always, I was very impressed with the attention each dreamer gave to the campus personel, taking detailed notes and asking questions.  The Dreamers were very satisfied with the buffett style lunch (thanks Chef Charles) and our student guide did a wonderful job of presenting her campus.  At the conclusion of the tour, the Dreamers spent the remainder of the day at the hotel swimming pool or lounging in their rooms until dinner time.  After everyone enjoyed a long and peaceful nights sleep (if you consider 2 hours long and peaceful), the group headed south towards St. Petersburg to visit the Salvador Dali Museum and Exhibit.  There, the Dreamers were taken on a guided tour that discussed many of Dali's most prominent pieces.  The drive to Miami ( a quick 5 hours) was smooth and more importantly, each parent was patiently waiting as we arrived back.  It was the perfect conclussion to another academic year.  Our Dreamers are now entering their 10th and 11th grade years.  We are ever so close to graduation days in 2015 and 2016.
