    Last month I applied for a workshop in Austin, TX this August. It was advertised in magazines, on the web, by mail, etc. and only 30 people were to be selected to attend. I was chosen! They selected me!! I am so excited! I won't get all the information about it for a couple weeks, and it sounds like there is a load of required reading coming my way, but I just can't hold it in! I hoped but honestly didn't think I get a place! We need a happy dance smiley because I'm doing one right now!

    I'm not 100% clear on exactly what it is on, but the title is something like From Founding of a Nation to Division of the Union. It has to do with how the events that took place while planning the Constitution and early years as a new nation eventually helped bring about the causes of the Civil War. That's my understanding.

    Another cool smiley! Where is Amanda to capture all of these? Thanks everybody! I am so excited! I started to tell my kids the good news yesterday, but then I had to stop and try to figure out how to explain what the workshop's focus will be. I had said "I have some exciting news I want to share with you," and then stopped trying to collect my thoughts. They all get excited and started guessing what my exciting news could be. One girl blurted out "You're pregnant!" "WHAT!?" was my response. I couldn't believe she said that! My next thought was 'Have I put on that much weight?' We straightened it out and they are excited for me (especially since they got free time at the end of the day), but WOW. It was funny.
