I will be attending this years conference. I have not paid as of yet but plan on doing so in the next few days I have the money for that and saving for the airfare and hotel. I will probably flying in on Aug 4th and leaving on the 8th or 9th not sure on that yet I guess that all depends on if I do the Peer counseling.

Hope to see some of you there. Whoever decides they are going we will have to make some plans on when and where to meet.

It is killing me not to go this year. But maybe next year. I had seriously considered it but we have too many other priority trips coming up. We lived in MO for over nine years and have not been back there for over two, so this summer we must drive from Utah to MO...just me alone with the four kiddos....should be fun, but a pretty big trip.

Then my dad is retiring in MO at the end of the summer. I cant take the kids at that time, since they will be in school by then, but I might fly in to be at his party. We realized recently that it is the same weekend as the tenth anniversary of my moms death so all my siblings are trying to be there, to honor her on that day.

In the meantime, thru the rest of the summer I need to be around as much as possible. I have a three year old with severe speech delays and have had trouble finding him help here in Utah. I finally got him into a program that had a waiting list, and he starts in mid june, so I dont feel like I can miss many sessions.

I am planning to fly out next summer though...hope to see you all there! Marcus, wish I could help you out on the fashion show...but I will be your guinea pig and try out the ski foot this winter.... :P

Anyone who goes MUST post photos! Wouldnt it be neat if some friends from the forum could meet up there and take a group picture??

Hey Brenda

JohnnyV tried to persuade me to ask my parents to go

and I think it would be totally awesome

but my problem would be the money and the transportation

to TN and in TN

I would ask but that would be a big problem

Lesley,

Call the ACA and maybe they can sponsor you so you can attend. They have a youth camp so maybe you would meet others your age that you can relate to!!

ACA 1-866-267-5669.
