Bricktown is cool. And anyone who goes should really try to see the OKC bombing memorial. It is very moving.

So, Mark, you're going?

Yes ma'am, I am taking vacation and plan on being there - I am already putting money back from each paycheck, saving up for it

Be sure to pack them VP's. :P

There is a chance that the convention falls on the same week as hubby's business trip to Detroit. If so, I can't go. But, I'm hoping its a different week. We'll see.

I am excited about it. :yay: It will be my first.I have gone to HUNDREDS of conventions....some because I had to and some because I wanted to. This sounds like a lot more fun than a Department of Education Convention. I didn't realize it was that many days! Cool! Sat - Thursday!!!!!!!

I was pretty impressed with the package I received from them and how quick I received it! Certificate and all! A full fledged member!!!I feel like this is the beginning of something really good.
