Yay! I was going to email you about the particulars on this. I'm definitely coming this year. My birthday is the 18th, so this will be my birthday present to me. I'll email you later today. Need to get back to work on not trolling MWK :-)

The Fall retreat was such a wonderful experience... I highly suggest anyone who can attend the Spring retreat to sign up!

Should have known I will be in Disney with the family during the retreat. Maybe next year.

I want to go. I could use a break. However, it's during school...Damn!
