Guess Who Is Coming to the California Conference?

I just started back to school and I amalready taking Friday off to come to the California Kindergarten Conference. PLEEEEESE  join us for our blog meet-up. I am so excited about this that I am packing tonight! So, here are your name tags that go right into your badge holder for the conference. Subtle-huh? Keep your fingers crossed because I invited Dr. Jean to join us and I would fall over if she showed up. Please stop screaming. If you are there Friday night I will probably be there at some point after I see my daughter (lawyer girl) who lives nearby. Grab this now and getting ready to rock with Pete. If your name is not on here take a blank tag and feel free to put your name on it. Everyone is invited.

I LOVE the nametags Fran! I am so glad you are excited about coming and I am feeling the same! I will be keeping my eyes out for you and the others with these special nametags as I walk around the conference. I don't think I can wait until 5:00 to meet you, so be ready to be stalked and found way before that!
I am singing the "Seasons" song by Dr. Jean with my class this week and it would be amazing to meet her! We are also doing Heidi's number songs (the teens) and my kiddos go crazy for them! Can't wait to meet her as well.
I hope to get into her workshop!

5:00 sounds fine. You pick the place and I will be there! have fun seeing your daughter Friday night. I will be with my son (college boy) that night, so I will see you on Saturday.

I had a great day with my students today! I hope you did too!

I am screaming! So sorry but I just can't help it! I have my very own, very cool name tag! This is too, too, too exciting! I am trying not to scream too loud because the power is out in my entire neighborhood and people are a little on edge so I don't want to scare anyone with my screaming. (... yes, I am sitting in the complete dark and blogging. The only light is that of my laptop. Hi my name is Camille and I am pathetically addicted to blogging.)

Okay Camille,
You might need intervention but who am I to cast stones? I am thrilled you and Cindy are coming. I will look for you and your name tag all over the place. I hope you guys will have dinner with me Saturday night. I am so excited. Do you think Dr. Jean will eat with us...OMG seriously!!!!

Freckleteacher said...

You are seriously addicted Camille and I can't wait to meet you and the others who are addicted too! Yes Fran, I will be joining you for dinner for sure. I will drive home in the dark just for you (I hate driving in the dark)Thanks for inviting Dr. Jean...I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that she joins us!

OK just so you know I had a tiny seizure upon seeing my name! *wow*

Today I am freaking out because I have not received my email confirmation of registration! Scared my district screwed it up! I emailed the conference folks so I'm hoping to hear back! BEYOND EXCITED TO MEET YOU FRAN you are a dream come true at this point in my career!

Hope you have time to check out my blog:

See you SOON!!!

I wasn't thinking straight last night in the dark ... I completely forgot to say YES to dinner at 5 on Saturday. YES, YES, YES! I am open to eating anywhere, but am thinking it might be easiest if there is a restaurant at the Hyatt. (The conference is at the Hyatt, right? If not, have no fear, I will figure it out and get there.) I will do some research re: restaurants.

Also, please don't get your hopes up, but I am meeting Dr. Jean on Thursday so will really try to be courageous and second your invitation to join us for dinner. (But there is a huge possibility that in my excitement about meeting her, I may be rendered speechless. I tend to be quiet anyway.)

Kat said...

OK my worst suspicion was just realized.... my district did NOT get me registered in time for both days... BUT I am making a special trip on Sat. to see YOU and the Kinder Blogging Queen Team at 5:00! Meanwhile I'll also see about getting into Sunday's sessions as well.

Let me know where you'll all be.

*hugs* Kat

Oh, my goodness, this may be just too exciting for words! And you made us all a nametag, too! You're such a gal! I can't wait to meet you all! Do you think Dr. Jean will come? I can't wait to find out!!!!
I'll be biting my fingernails, just waiting to see! But even if she doesn't, this will be a BLAST!!!!
Hooray for us!

So sorry to hear that your district messed up your registration Kat! I just squeeked in myself. I got the
e-mail today saying I was registered and another one that said Saturday is full! Phew!
Hopefully you can still go on Sunday and I am so glad you will still come for the dinner at 5:00.

Fran Kramer said...

I cannot wait to see all of you. I am going to be in classes all day Saturday and Sunday. We can all try to find each other. I am so glad you got the classes you want. They will always try to accommodate you. I am really thrilled you will be there!
Bring your camera!

Mrs. McKown said...

Okay, I did some restaurant checking. (Since you are all meeting me, you might as well know that I am good at researching and sharing details. I am NOT good at making decisions about what to do with those details.) There is a restaurant at the Hyatt called TusCa. (Maybe a combination of Tuscany and California??? It is Italian.) They know they are going to be super busy that night so are not taking any reservations, BUT said that if we are there by 5:25, they will be able to seat our party for sure. (They open at 5:30.) There is also a Sushi restaurant at the Hyatt and there are other restaurants fairly close that we could carpool to.

Hello Ladies,
I can meet you for dinner! Thank so much for organizing the event! I am looking forward to it! This is my 5th time attending the conference! I can't wait!

thanks so much,

Fran Kramer said...

Fantastic Jen,
Meet us in the lobby at 5. We will probably just eat in the hotel. I cannot wait to meet you.
