I'm just wondering who is actually going to the conference, like actually going to sessions. LOL. I know some people are just going to meet everyone at dinner and then do other stuff.

I registered for the convention. When it was here in Minneapolis a couple years ago we didn't register but went down to meet Bethany (gbesco) and her family for lunch. We were at the hotel and it all looked so interesting that I was wishing we had registered. Leah and I are going to try taking turns going to sessions so one of us can keep Angela occupied.

I haven't actually registered yet, but my husband and I are planning on going to the sessions. We've never been to Atlanta before, so I wish we were able to stay longer and see more. I want to go to the sessions though since I still have a lot of learning to do. Smile I'm hoping since we don't fly out until 5 on Sunday maybe we can go sightsee some then.

We aren't going to the conference either. We've never been to Atlanta so we are going to arrive there Thursday night and stay until Sunday, that way we have plenty of time to roam around and enjoy it. Wonder if that Matthew McConoughey movie will be wrapped up by then, ha ha ha ha ha.

Yep, I sure will. You could easily spot us. I'll be the one with my hair ripped out. Denny will look like he's on speed from all the JET ALERT caffeine pills he has taken. Peyton and Sophie will be bickering about something, and the little ones will be bawling, especially Halle cause she will be hot and thirsty Noah will be saying "I'm tarred, I'm so so tarred, this is STUPID, this is DUMB". They don't do well on long drives!!! :rolleyes:

I'm also registering for the conference, but I'm probably only going to the sessions that deal with younger kids.
I guess I'll decide when we get there.

Registered for the conference-not sure how many sessions I will make it too-at these things-my hubby and I got o different seesions-so we can be in 2 places at once. I will have the kids with me, but one of my SIL's is going to come to the hotel in case the kids get "nasty" and hang out in our room with them...plus I think she is a little curious and wants to see all of the people with DS-she loves, loves, loves Marty!

We are registered, but we will also see what we get to. I should ask this on another thread, but I am curious, is anyone's older children going to the older children's sections?
