We received a warm welcome in Tennessee yesterday afternoon. Set up went smoothly (and quickly too!), and we were grateful the heavy rain had stopped. Our coordinator and some of her friends provided us with dinner, which was delicious.
This was our first evening Energize! conference, and I was surprised by the great turnout for the 5pm round-table sessions. They are bonus sessions because we know some families can’t make it to those with the dad’s work schedule. A little after 6 pm (round tables go to 6:30 generally), we asked if there were any young people interested in learning to write, and if so, I would do a little spur-of-the-moment session with them. Apparently there was interest–a lot of interest–as I soon had a room full of anxious listeners. We had a great time together. I wasn’t sure how it would flow, but it went well.
Part 2 coming later. We’re looking forward to Greensboro this weekend.
