2nd Day of the Techroom

Yay! There is a free breakfast on the 23rd floor but its kinda hard to hear/find out about. Once again another day in te techroom. Only today I have been helping people use the computers and blog. OMG lun ch was sooo fun! We saw a preformance by The Red Nosed Clowns (ok I don't know their actual name) and we got cards that looked like room keys the advertised LLL and 2 of them had red dots and the people who got the red dots won $25 at the LLL bookstore. Oh yeah and after the preformance which was pretty funny we all got clown noses. I gotta run.

Tech Room

I spent all day in the tech room playing with the kids in the tech room play area. That was fun. =) So after a few hours of chipmunk impressions (ok that was me) and playing blues clues on a computer, some of the kids and I went to the playroom. Well oddly it seems like even people my age would enjoy it. Well the playroom was fun with the kids but if you went there by yourself it's pretty baby-ish. The tech room kids are so cute!

Tomorrow, Tomorrow,

I ate a muffin and bagel for breakfast.....ok that is sooo not interesting in any way what so ever.

Well I went down to the hotel cafe and talked with Karen's mother Fran and her kids Anastasia and Liam. And then we wet to the field museum. It was really fun! We took the bus and then we got there and waited in an uber long line. But after we got our stamps and every thing we looked at the Dino named Sue. Apparently she was discovered in 1990 and according to the museum it is the world's best and most well preserved Dino, but I think they're bragging.

Then we saw the Ancient Americas exhibit. It was really cool and there was a pueblo house you can go in, and lots of movies, and in one of the rooms a like video type thing of the Ice Age on the walls. It is kinda scary when there is a a wooly mammoth.

OMG when you're looking at one of the exhibits about Indians its says something like "blah, blah, blah people still join groups to make friends" and then there's a display with a bunch of buttons for organizations and, guess what, La Leche League has a button in there!!!!!

And last night I saw Wicked it is the best play ever!!!! I got a I <3 OZ tee.

Finally!

Yay! Today is the first day of the Global Strategic Positioning Seminar and Physician's Seminar! My mom and I got here around 10 AM. We attended a few sessions and my mom gave a small talk. Since my mom is going to both the Global Strategic Positioning Seminar and the Physician's Seminar I'm using one of her name tags! The kids get these little bracelets that you like get a waterparks and stuff mine is green. =) We ate at a Kentucky Fried Chicken and Pizza Hut combo resturant for lunch. I got a few postcards to send to my friends back home. Oh yeah and this evening my uncle and aunt are taking me to see Wicked I am sooooooo excited!!!! Yay! Later today or earlier tomorrow I'll probably walk around near the hotel and take some pictures. There is this really neat park with two pillers that are like water fountains and my uncle says that at night faces are projected onto it so I'm hoping to go and see that. There is also a fountain that lights up and a skateboard park at the park and the lake is right next to it. When my brother and dad come next sunday my brother will probably skateboard there he is pretty good at skateboarding and he is only 7 years old. =0 Well that's all for now!

No Buttons :( (for sure)

I never got the buttons for the conference. I feel so disappointed. Gah evil buttons. *whacks head against wall* And my brother is sick in our hotel room in Madison WI.

At least I got to see some old friends yesterday. And I went swimming twice once with my friend Cassidy and the other time in the hotel pool. And my friend Cassidy and I went to the tennis courts and we walked down the bike path. Oh yeah and we found a red dog tennis ball and played with a random dog we met named Toby.

And we also saw some old friends a minute ago in our hotel lobby. Their daughter was like 3 or 4 when I moved to Texas but now she is sooooo big! Its kinda scary. My mom and I are going to drive to Harvard IL with my dad and brother and then my mom and I are going to take the train and the metra to Chicago. And then we're gonna stay with my uncle and aunt until we get our hotel room tomorrow.

No Buttons :(

The buttons for the help form volunteers didn't arrive today. I'm so worried that we won't get them. We're leaving tomorrow. I really doubt we'll get them.

At least I'm almost done with the Mixed CDs I'm making for our trip. Its really fun to draw pictures on them with sharpies. My mom bought some karaoke songs off of yahoo music, so we can sing with them in the car.

Buttons

I just finished designing the buttons for the Online Help Forms Volunteers! =D I'm really looking forward to meeting the friends my mom has made who work on the Help Forms since my mom works all day on them. And all or most of the Help Forms Volunteers are going to wear these buttons to advertise and hopefully get some more volunteers. Oh and I'm also hoping to/looking forward to seeing my Aunt's studio.

Yay!

Yay! My mom sent in the registration forms a few days ago and now someone is helping us find a roomate. =) I'm so excited! I'm probably going to get to see my aunt and uncle who play in in a orchestra. And we'll probably have some fun talking about the musical that I'm in. Which is Godspell sadly right now the little noise my computer makes sounds like a song for Godspell. XD

First Post

Hi anyone who is reading this blog!

I'm Sylvia. I worked on the refactoring of the LLLI website so I am really excited to be going to this conference with my mom! I'm looking forward to working in the Tech Room, blogging, and taking a few classes.

And on the way to Chicago and back I'm looking forward to making the best map ever. My mom and dad and I were watching a movie last night and I got an idea to make a map, sort of like a scrap book, telling the best places to eat or at least our favorites, sights to see, and things to do. I want to have music timed to the trip from College Station TX to Chicago IL and everywhere in between!
