Join Us Next Time!

So this is the whole group of women. I made them a silly little gift so they would remember this day. It was a luggage tag with their name and blog address. Yes, I  am super corny and both of my daughters had to help me put this together. I hope this is the beginning of many new friendships. We all need to meet up and celebrate each other! I think all of these blogs are wonderful so let me list them for you to check out. Some of them you might already know, but just in case:

If you live in Northern California I am going to the California Kindergarten Conference in Santa Clara and would love to meet you. Hello Cindy! That can't be too far from you.. I'll be there January 13th-15th. Heidi presents at this conference and Dr. Jean. These are two of my favorites so join me!

Looks like a supercalifragalisticexpialidocious time! Wish I could have been there. Why don't you come to Wisconsin and "cool down", Fran. I will be presenting at the Early Childhood Conference in April at UW Stout! Enjoy your New Year! Amber

Gorgeous Ladies!!!!!

Hey Fran! Of course I will be going to the Kindergarten Conference (now that I know you will be there!) It is not far from where I live at all! We shall be in touch my friend!

Fran Kramer said...

OMG Cindy! We should present together next year. How cool would that be?
I am screaming and jumping around with excitement!

Fran Kramer said...

You will do such an amazing job at that conference. What are you doing it on? I would love to see you because you do teach like a rockstar!
I told everyone about meeting you and how much fun it was. You were my first meet- up.

Freckleteacher said...

That would be beyond awesome Fran! Not sure I could keep up with you, but I could surely try! (at least as an assistant!) They need some blogging fun at the conference! Not too much being presented this year except for Heidi and Dr. Jean. I have presented there before and it was fun!

Looks like you girls had a GREAT time!

Chrissy said...

*sniff/whine* Why did this have to be the year that my family did NOT go to LA for Christmas?!

Seriously, I am glad you all had fun! It does my heart good to know that real life is even better than blogging! :-) ReadWriteSing

Fran Kramer said...

We will meet. I just know it.If you come to LA I will drop everything and come to you! I would be so excited to meet you!

Ms. Lopez said...

Hey Fran,
It was GREAT to see you again!! Thanks so much for the goodies!! I am using my tag as a bookmark too. I had so much fun laughing but our time was too short. Can't wait till we get together again!

Cindy said...

How COOL!!! Lucky Ladies! ;-)

Tamara L. Chilver said...

Oh Fran, I am so pouting that I did not get to meet you in person. I can't wait for the big day! What an amazing mentor you are to so many people! MANY blessings to you!

Fran Kramer said...

You are the very person I would love to meet and hug the most! I am considering coming to NY just to meet you. Most of these bloggers are TBA members and we talked about how much we love you and Leslie!

Hi Fran;

I live in Central California and love to meet up later in the year if you have another bloggy meet and greet! I lobe your blog and ideas. Thanks for all that you do!

Heidi Butkus said...

Hey there! Thanks for the shout out! I'm so sorry I missed the blogger meet up. I would have enjoyed having brunch with all of you and getting to know you! I can't wait to see all of you at CKA!
I probably won't see any of you in person until Saturday morning, though, because I am flying in around 8:00 PM on Friday night! I am doing a staff development day at a preschool in the Dallas area on Friday, so I have to fly out of Dallas and then into San Fransisco, so I am going to miss all of the Friday night fun, unfortunately.
See you all on Saturday, though!
Heidi Butkus

Fran Kramer said...

I am so excited to come to this and I will look forward to seeing you there Heidi!

Fran Kramer said...

I would love to meet you. I am so sorry that I did not know that you were from California. Come to the California Kindergarten Conference in January. I will be there and so will Heidi. Please!

Camille said...

Triple OMG!!! Three of my favorites are going to be at the kinder conference in two weeks and I AM GOING TOO!!!! Fran, Cindy and Heidi, I hope to meet you all! This is my very first kinder conference!!! If you come up with a special bloggy meet up plan, please let me know. Hmmm ... it would be great if we had a special something on our nametag to make it easier to spot other blog addicts.

Fran Kramer said...

What are you talking about? I am definitely finding you and will probably talk your ears off. We do need something special to identify us. Now your're thinkin' like a kindergarten teacher. Hummmmmm let me think!

Mrs. Kilburn said...

Hi Fran;

I totally would come to the conference if I could--maybe next year! Good luck with everything! By the way--I noticed that my last comment had a total typo! It was suppose to say "I LOVE your blog" not I lobe your!

Thanks for all that you do!


Kat said...


I will be at the conference and would love to meet up with you!

I have just started my Kindergarten blog and need some (OK a LOT) of tips! You can find me here:

Hope to see you at CKA!
