We made it!

After weeks of preparing and packing -- and an E.R. visit on Monday that threatened to cancel the whole trip -- were finally at the Life is Good Unschooling Conference! We drove all day Wednesday and yesterday, and checked in to the hotel around 8 last night. Puffer and Grouper were so anxious to get to the hotel, they didnt want to stop for dinner, so we just snacked, and then ordered room service as soon as we got here.

We were all pretty hyper, except Baby Crabcakes, who was exhausted from being out of bed so late. Hes asleep right now, which is why Im on the in-room computer, instead socializing or down with the boys at the pool. My friend Sarah took the kids down while baby catches up on his sleep. We went out to breakfast and he fussed nearly the whole time, I think because he was hungry again even though I nursed him for an hour this morning. Heś still has trouble settling down to nurse with too much commotion around him.

And thereś been plenty of commotion. But Ive met a few people, putting familiar names to new faces, and I think weŕe going to have a great time. The opening talk is in a couple hours, and then thereś a skateboarding funshop that Grouperś been anticipating all week. I got him a new skateboard before we left because it had disappeared. Then tonight is the Pajama Party, which is what Puffer has been most excited about.

I almost went to that conference, but had too many other things I needed to spend money on instead! I hope you had a great time. A good friend of mine drove out from Tennessee to be there. You may have even talked to her. Small world, especially for homeschoolers.
