Good morning from The Rebelution's "Do Hard Things Tour" in Chicago!
Good morning, girls! You awake yet? I hope so—you won’t want to miss a minute of this awesome conference!
I’ve been up for almost six hours now . . . early for a Saturday morning, I know, but already totally worth it. I drove four of the youth group members from my church here. Seventy brain teasers, blonde jokes, and car games later (yes, there were three teen guys in my backseat), we arrived at the Moody Church.
I asked a volunteer where the manager was, so I could set up my computer for blogging. The volunteer wasn’t sure . . . “They’re in there,” she said, pointing to the little door behind the stage. “Go ahead and walk on in.”
I walked in to find the band (Reilly), Alex, Brett, and a few others hanging out. (Hmm . . . who doesn’t belong here?) But, they made me feel so welcome. I really like them. Brett told me all about their exciting new plans for 2011, and I even got to meet Alex’s fiancée, Courtney.
So . . . I’d better start listening now. Alex and Brett (guess who's older) just shared how the Rebelution got started, and then the 3000-3500 attendees texted their responses to the twins’ questions. Very cool.
Oh—Alex is talking. Gotta go. I’m curious, though: How many of you have heard of The Rebelution before today?
Also, a trivia question for you: When was the word "teenager" first published? Give it a stab!
