The Rebelution Conference 2

Howdy, Howdy!

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
-Alex Harris

Session 2- Do Hard Things
-Brett Harris

Session 3- Character and Competence
-Gregg Harris

Session 4- Companionship
-All 3 Harrises

I will post more in depth about the sessions later; along with some pictures.


  1. Nice Post!!! That sounds like you had a wonderful time. Wish I could have come.
    That's funny what you said about waking up the Deems, when we went to the Seattle tournament with them the boys were usually the last one's up. Heehee:)

    Hopefully part 3 will be coming up soon, right? Ok, bye now.

  2. Yes i agree with Des...their grandpa had to wake them up every morning!!!
    Sounds like you had waaayyyy toooo much fun...I'm so jealous :)
    Can't wait for the second part.

  3. Hey Aaron I have question for you. Are you guys going to the Scott's get-together thing on the 30th?

  4. I just found out that we are not going. Boo-ho!!! I wish we could... but we have family coming in like that night... so... no. Make sure you tell everyone that we wanted to come.

  5. that was a blast!!! and a TOTAL blessing! Well hey from Colorado ~Ruth~

  7. In all of these occasions in which us Deems have been reluctant to arise, it has been with good reason. We did not get to sleep until past midnight and it was 6:15!!!
    I just felt obligated to uphold our reputation.
