Tomorrow my wife and start our 11 hour drive to St. Louis for Youth Specialties’ National Youth Workers Convention. We’re looking forward to a wonderful time of rejuvenation, relaxation, inspiration, education and of course the exhilaration that comes from hanging out with thousands of other youth workers. This will be my sixth convention and I’m ecstatic! Of course I’ll be blogging through the whole thing, so be prepared for frequent updates. Is anyone else going?
My wife already posted her list of seminars she wants to attend. In past years my schedule usually seems to change at the last minute, but here’s what I’m planning on right now anyway.
