Kennedy James Jones is now seven months old and looking forward to her first InstructureCon and getting to see Mommy and Daddy present! Yep, both James and I were notified last week that our conference proposals were accepted!! James will be presenting on #Canvancements (with a little help from me as co-presenter) and I'm going to present on "No Need to Blame Canvas." So far things are shaping up for this to be another awesome #instcon!! Can't wait to see everyone in real life!
