All My Bags Are Packed



Remember that song? Okay most of you were not even born when this song was popular (LOL). Yup, tomorrow I am flying out of California and heading for Vegas! Woohoo! The day has finally come and I am packed up and ready to go! Do ya think I'm excited enough? I feel like I am going to the Oscars to meet the stars. But they are the stars in my world- right? On Wednesday I am doing a presentation in the morning on why every teacher should follow our blogs and the value of doing this. It starts at 8:00 so I am not expecting a big group. Oh well. Once that is over I am taking so many fabulous classes that I brought two notebooks instead of one. I can't wait to hug all my blogging friends in person! It will be a week I will never forget! I even have friends from my district coming! They know I need them there. The hubs is coming for tech support and emotional support since I am a bit of a train wreck about the whole presentation thing. We won't focus on that right now. If you can't come this year than maybe next. I will share all the details when I return. Look out kinder teachers... here I come!

I will be there to support you my friend and to learn from a master blogger! I know you are prepared and are ready to share the wonderful world of blogging. I can't wait to see you and all of the bloggers at the meet-up. We will all give you lots of encouragement!

Hey, Michelle, can I sit by you in the front row? I'd love to meet you too!

Fran Kramer said...

That's why I love you Cindy! I will introduce you to Michelle. She is from Orange County and even taught in my district. She is fabulous, like you.

That will be great Fran! I am sitting in a hotel on my way home from Yellowstone! What an amazing place! I will be home for one day and then head to Vegas!
I know you are crazy excited and maybe just a little nervous. I am so glad to hear that Dr. Kindergarten Crayons is coming too since he knows how to keep you calm and fix any technical stuff. I hope to meet him too!

See you on Tuesday and have a safe trip!

Have a safe flight and I'll see you Tuesday!

Meredith said...

I will be in your audience on Wednesday and I'm hoping to see you on Tuesday. My hubby is going as well...maybe they can meet up for discussing their books, "How to Support Your Kinder Teacher." :) (or a refreshment???)

Camille said...

"Oh my bags are packed and I'm ready to go. I'm standing here outside your door. I hate to wake you up to say goodbye...." Just imagine me singing this is a beautiful voice. Yes, I remember this song well!

Fran, I am so proud of you for doing this presentation! You will be awesome!!
Love to you,
Camille

but the dawn is breaking, it's early morn, already I'm so lonesome...
Love you for remembering this song. I loved Peter, Paul, and Mary. Our generation had the best music!
Thanks for those encouraging words my sweet friend.
I will try my hardest!

There is no doubt in our minds that you will be absolutely fabulous just because you're you! Those gals are lucky to hear you and will be inspired.
Sad we are not going to make it (insert sniffles and tears here) but are eager to hear all about it when you get back!
