    Hello!  This past week has been a great one.  It started to get sunny and I was able to do many different activities.  One such activity was going to Alki Beach which is in West Seattle and is an awesome area.  I went as part of our Ecology lab and here is a view from when we were collecting samples:


    Another fun event that happened was our second Accepted Student Open House!  We had so many accepted students and their families here and I was busy answering questions and leading campus tours!  I met some awesome possible future Redhawks and I hope they choose to come to school here.  Here is a picture of Mandi  (another representative in our office) and I from the open house:

    Then one of the main highlights of the week was attending the Elvis Costello concert at the Paramount Theatre!  My dad and my sister drove up from Portland and we had so much fun.  He sounded awesome live and here is a video of him singing at the Portland show.  On this tour he had a giant wheel on stage that members of the audience would come up and spin to choose hit set list which was really cool.  He has so many songs!  The song at the beginning of this post is my favorite song by him and I just love the line “what’s so funny ‘bout peace, love and understanding?”  Here is a picture of us at the concert:
