Yesterday we had to take Katie to the Kansas City airport- yep an almost 4 hour drive one way and it was about 63 degrees and windy/overcast/rainy up there all day. We left home at 1 am as her flight left at 6:40 and they want you there about 2 hours early- ugh! After dropping her off, Kay and I went to Waffle House for breakfast (that in my opinion, wasn't all that great) and then we went to the Independence Visitor's Center for the LDS Church and parked in the parking lot and took a long nap! lol
We then visited with the Missionaries in the center, got directions to Richmond and headed on our trip home. We got as far as Historic Downtown Independence and saw a Covered Wagon with mules pulling it and decided to take the 45 minute History trip. WOW! Am I glad we did! That Mule skinner was fabulous with his tales of Missouri History and it began to to be more clearmo- a lot of the Church History we have from Missouri but that still doesn't make it "right" the way those pioneers were treated here in this state. We also stopped at every Antique store we saw on the way home until it was after 5 and they were closed. The weather was VERY crisp and damp with some bits of rain yesterday. It got as high as 63 degrees. We decided after taking the wagon tour that it was to cold to head to Richmond and we would save it for another day.
I would recommend this Missouri History trip to EVERYONE and we will be taking the longer trip next time! We heard about Harry Truman, Andrew Jackson, Quantrell's Raiders and more! This guy is a fabulous Story teller and really brings history to life. His Business is called Pioneer Trails Adventures
Here is a Fall Card we made for Class that I had forgotten to post- I love our Wednesday Card classes! I teach all kinds of techniques and we have show and tell! It's from 10:30 am to 11:30 or 12 depending on how long we chat! The class is only $5.00 per person and you can usually purchase an extra kit for $3.00 and make a 2nd card to give away. I know how you all like to keep the card you made in class! lol

What is Leadership Conference?
When good people gather, great things happen. That's certainly the case at our annual leadership conference. Senior supervisors and above are invited to attend a two-day event designed specifically for demonstrators with growing downlines. Sessions focus on leadership skills, management methods, and opportunities to build your business.
As with any Stampin' Up! event, attendees participate in swaps, sharing ideas, and stamping! In addition to the priceless information and motivation, leadership conference participants receive a conference program, lunch both days, and an exclusive stamp set that is available in our latest catalog.

Life is too short to spend your precious time trying to convince a person who wants to live in gloom and doom otherwise. Give lifting that person your best shot, but don't hang around long enough for his or her bad attitude to pull you down. Instead, surround yourself with optimistic people." Zig Ziglar
