Saturday we had classes all day and then Deborah generously invited the sponsors, tutors, class helpers and Pride staff for dinner. We had a ball.
Sunday classes again and in the afternoon presentations and thank you's to the sponsors, class helpers and tutors.
It was an exhausting weeking but so much fun at the same time. The friendships that we take away from these conventions are priceless. I hope I get to do another one some day. Then Sunday afternoon Steve and the kids arrived and we spent the next two days at Seaworld. It was such an adventure for the kids. On Tuesday on our way to Seaworld we ran into Jodie from Scraptacular in Melbourne. Jodie's kids and my kids had made friends the night before in Kids Club. So we ended up spending most of the day together at Seaworld and having dinner together back at the resort. It was great to meet you Jodie and we loved your and your mum's company. I will definitely come visit next time I'm in Melbourne.
So that is the wrap up. There is so much more to tell but my head is still a bit fuzzy from it all :)
I will share one of the classes I was teaching. It was the Scrapworks class. Hope to see all of you next time!
