    Yes - bummer though - isn't 7 the oldest your child has to be before they will provide day care so adults can attend?

    Ironmom, yes, that's what we read too and neither of our DDs are over 7, so we'll be waiting a couple of years before looking into it.

    We are a couple of hours away from the conference and I was thinking about going alone, if DH can watch 'em for a day. I can report back if I go!

    We have been toying with going to FL this summer anyway, so this might work out for us. I too was noticing that <7 year olds are left out of the equation, but I think dh would help out with dd on the friday and he may want to swing in for the Sat. himself.

    Does anyone have kids who have joined in the kids group and how did that work out? Our ds will be 9 by then.
