January seemed both very long and very short this year.
Today is the first day of February and also Thankful Thursday.
Next week, I am going to the McCormick Center for Early Childhood Leadership conference in Wheeling, Illinois. Not only am I attending the conference, but I will be doing a presentation along with the state project manager for our Thrive family child care network during the Family Child Care Summit portion of the conference.
It is so exciting to see family child care finally getting some of the attention and recognition it deserves. One of my long term dreams has been to be able to present at a national conference and now that it’s happening, I am honored, excited, and terrified.
Please send us all the good wishes, vibes, and prayers you can muster for safe travel (and no airplane drama like my last flying experiences!), a great conference, and for our presentation to go well.
