Halfway through the day....

Hi all,
We just finished a terrific lunch catered by our own Barb H and her mom. THANKS, Darlene!!! The potatoes were huge and so tender they just melted. And the toppings?? Everything you could think of. I especially loved the marinated artichoke hearts on the salad. (Personally, I was just glad to be able to eat at all!!)

We also had our awards presentation.
Mary Karen won the Sunshine Award.
*lizzie won the Give Till It Hurts Award.
We had quite a few contest finalists and winners and four people who completed their NaNO goals.

There's been brainstorming and lots of timed writings. We just finished session #5 and the total word count was: 7529 words. The Heartlandians are flying high!!! Total for retreat so far: 28,328 words.
