Man has the summer flown by! We are down to about a week and a half before the Houseparent Network retreat at Monte Sano State Park in Huntsville, Alabama.
This will be a retreat that you just kick back and relax. No agenda, no speakers, just a bunch of House Parents gathering on top of a mountain and having a good time. No pressures and no worries.
To be honest, I had envisioned putting together something with some more substance and people representing different programs to give their propaganda speechs. But in the four months since we even brought up the idea of a get together, I havn’t had much time to contact some of the people I wanted to, witch may turn out to be a good thing. However it goes, at least a couple of us can sit down and try to decide what next year would look like, if it will even happen or not.
But this year it’s just a good time to kick back and relax. Here is a reprint from the forum that has some more info. can’t wait to meet you all! -Launch

Mike will be chilling like a big dog somewhere in the cabin area. (Oh to be a wealthy webmaster).
I will be pulling in probably late Thursday night and rolling out on Sunday morning or possibly afternoon if Glidenhi can hook me up with a church service.
It’s not to late to come out and hang with your fellow HP’s. Load the car up and point towards Huntsville, AL (Monte Sano State Park) and have a great time. Bring anyone and everyone and just be yourself and connect with the only people who truly understand what your life is like- other HP’s.
