It's been a busy summer so far. Chores, math, business(I recently finished the manula for our next product-Mammoth swings), reading, and other things. But I don't mind at all. I would rather be busy doing productive things than sitting around with nothing to do.
So we got back from the Rebelution conference technically on Sunday. 1:30 AM to be precise. It was a wonderful conference. The car ride there and back was fun also, if not a little goofy. :)
Friday, June 22nd, 11:45 am- We departed Grants Pass with Shelli and Ruth Owen, and Sarai Conard.
12:30 pm- We met up with the Deems and Holsts in Medford, then departed.
Some time in between our back left van tire unraveled.
Around 6pm- Arrived at the hotel and unpacked. We got our tire replaced at a tire shop and had dinner at McDonalds. We then went to the capital building area while listening to Lincoln Brewster; that was fun. After that we went back to our hotel, went on a walk to the river, had some ice wars, and played some outdoors games. Near the end of the walk I raced Dillon back to the hotel and, of course, he won. Consequently, we got sweaty; so we went swimming at the hotel pool and swam 'til it was dark.
After drying off, we played some card games and then went to bed at a late hour. The Deems and I slept in one room, Dad, Nathan and the Holst guys slept in another, and the girls had their own room.
Saturday, June 23rd, 6 am- I woke up.
6:15 am- I went outside for a walk. It was really pretty and really bright; much to the Deems dismay. Because, when I came back to our room, I had to open the door and let the sunlight in for a few brief moments. It was really funny, too, because as I did it they all groaned and rolled over at the same time. I quickly closed the door and chuckled quietly to myself..... Poor souls.
8:00 am- By now we were all fed, packed up and ready to go to the conference.
We arrived at the conference, registered and said hi to everyone we knew.
Here is a summary of the 4 sessions at the conference-
Session 1- The Myth of Adolescence
Session 2- Do Hard Things
Session 3- Character and Competence
Session 4- Companionship
-All 3 Harrises
I will post more in depth about the sessions later; along with some pictures.
