2011 JA Conference

The site is finally up!!! WOOT! The info that we have so desperately been waiting for is here! We are going into our third year on this journey but this will be our first year at the conference. Year 1 I don't think I knew anything about the conference, or if I did, I didn't think we needed it. HA! Year 2 we just had too much going on in our lives to even think about getting there. Year 3, this is our year! I am so excited to do this, I just can't even begin to describe it. Trying to figure out if we will go as a family since the rates are all the same anyway, or if just the Bean and I will go. If it's just the two of us we will take the train which will be way easier for her. If we all go we have to drive since 4 (or 5, another long story) train tickets will be too expensive. The drive will be painful for Bean, but then we aren't tied down to the train schedule which quite frankly, bites. So, lots of decisions to be made, but, bottom line is, at the very least, Mama and Bean WILL be there! And if Daddy and Bub have to stay home, they announced yesterday on their Facebook page that they will be doing webstreaming this year. SWEET! Not the same as being there but at least they can join in and learn with us. I cannot wait to meet all of these people that I have been blessed to come to know in a virtual world. I will finally be able to speak with them face to face, hug them, laugh with them, cry with them, SHARE with them, in person, in real life. SO very blessed. Thank you God.

How exciting!!! I am praying that we will be able to go this year. I so want to meet you and so many of the other amazing parents that we've "met" via FB! I'm so glad that you & Jenna have been blessed with the opportunity. You both will really love it. It is amazing, and I would even go so far as to say it is life changing.
