It's like summer camp for adults. ~ Adam Freed, TpT CEO
I never went to summer camp as a kid, but if it was anything like the TpT conference, then dang I sure missed out!
I'm going to be honest here. I wasn't sure if I was going to go to the conference this year. I went last year and absolutely loved it. But, did I really need to go again? I knew ahead of time that I would be going by myself (my husband came last year). I've never traveled alone before, so I was scared as heck to go to Vegas, of all places.
After our New England Blogger Meet-Up in February, I KNEW that I had to go. And I'm sure glad that I did. Not only did I learn more than last year, but I got to connect with so many friends that I had never met before (odd concept, I know). Since it was my second time, I was more comfortable talking to people I didn't know.Thank God It's First Grade! We talked babies, blogging and teaching. Okay, mostly babies.
Some more wonderful TpT-mamas.K's Classroom Kreations, is a friend from high school. She moved to North Carolina a few years ago and I haven't seen her in a long time. Thanks to TpT, we were reunited! How crazy is that?

My roommate and I realized on the taxi ride back to the airport that we had not gotten one picture together! Here I am with Amanda from The Take Home Teacher. She was so much fun to room with!
I left Vegas with more friends, knowledge and inspiration that I know what to do with. It might be weeks before it all fully sinks in. Bring on Vegas 2016!
