I Kid U Not…

Well, it’s hard to believe that KID U is over! What a FUN BUNCH OF DAYS!

Friday, was the pre-conference, and WHAT A BLAST that was! Every presenter did a BANG UP AWESOME job at presenting the theme in their own creative way. We had an in-house contest to spur them all on… every Kidology staff member and volunteer that wasn’t presenting was given a ballot to choose who did the best job, they ALL did awesome, and the vote was close, but the Winner of the Most Incredible Presentation went to:

Jamie Doyle and his magical presentation. He won an Incredibles DVD, Basketball, and Pez Dispenser. Not bad, eh?Saturday was KID U! We had over 250 people there all to be equipped and encouraged.

I taught workshops along with several other presenters. But my favorite thing of the day was meeting Monty the Python from Camp Timber-lee:

How do you like my necklace?

Monty made a great hat too!

OK, maybe the snake wasn’t my favorite thing, but it was pretty cool. My favoirte part of the day is usually at the end when I like to treat the staff and presenters out for some REAL Chicago Style Pizza! This year was the new Gino’s East in Lake Zurich! We took over the restaurant with 27 people pizza eaters!

the best thing about Kid U…. KIDS!
