I have to say, boarding the plane to come back here to this weather was painful.
It was 85 degrees in Florida while we were there, oh my word.
The conference was amazing- it's so powerful to see a network of young adults with a common purpose immediately hit it off.
I'm still processing through a lot of what was discussed, so I'm sure there will be sporadic quotes and reflections here on the blog for a while, but I wanted to throw some pictures up!
our group- plus our director of student programs and dean of student life
sarah and i obviously thrilled to be venturing into warmer territory
Lauren, a student from CIU in South Carolina, myself, and Taj walking over to see the historic shuttle launch

There was an unbelievable amount of challenging and encouraging data thrown our way ,
sketchy necessary trip to a place called The Drunken Monkey with our Dean of Students,
absolutely crazy games of Dutch Blitz played [very loudly],
and a lot of valuable friendships forged
in just those three days.
