We're Here!

We just finished unpacking ... and that includes putting up our picnic table.   Yeah, we brought that with us too!   We figured the kids will want to do their coloring & such while waiting to do various activities and it's better than tripping over them if they were sprawled out on the floor.   (I wonder what the housekeeping staff will think when they come in to straighten the room and see a picnic table!)

Oh, it's not one of those huge ones you see in backyards or at parks ... it's a portable picnic table that folds into itself to become flat like a suitcase ... complete with handle and all.   The important thing is that the kids like using it.

Anyway, enough with the table!

I'm here! We're here!   It took us about 4 1/2 hours and that includes a stop to ice my back and grab a bite to eat at Subway.   Not bad!  

My first event to attend is Professional Day, and that starts at 8:30 in the morning.  This will be my first time attending this feature offered for the Professionals and Associate Professionals (that's me) members of the CGOA.  The theme is "Crochet -- from theme to concept."  Jocelyn Sass will show us how to take the mystery out of writing patterns, while Carolyn Christmas, Janet Rehfeldt, and Karen Whooley will do a presentation on self-publishing.  Trisha Malcolm will cover topics as what's hot on the market and how to find these trends.

I can't wait!!
