On a whim, and with no expectation of being chosen, I decided I would apply for the DEN Summer Institute. After about 100 takes, I was finally satisfied with my video and sent it off. To my surprise, I was one of the first applicants chosen for the institute! What a shock!

Pretty much as soon as I was selected, I started planning my trip. This will be taking the place of our normal summer trip, so my husband, Don, is going to be coming with me! He'll be camping along the shores of Lake Champlain while I get to hang out at #DENSI2013! Our current plan is to drive across Canada, with stops in Ottawa and Montreal before arriving in Burlington (we're hoping to make it by Saturday). The return trip will take us through NY, with a stop in Buffalo. We're then going to cross into Canada, possibly make a side trip to Toronto, and then head across to Detroit before heading north to get back home.
