WE'RE DEBT FREE!!!

The day after Halloween (Nov. 1st) we got up early and headed to Portland. Dave Ramsey was doing a seminar on finances. We took all three kids and G'ma. Our friends, Tara & Jim came also. We got there early to make sure to get a seat. The two pictures below are of us there about an hour early. Good thing we got there that early because it was packed. 9,000 people showed up to listen to Dave speak on money.

One of Dave's main things is teaching people how to get out of debt (everything but the house). And once you do you call into his radio show and yell- WE'RE DEBT FREE!! We always said we would do that but years ago when we got out of debt we just never got around to it.
The conference was from 1 to 6 pm. The kids did really well sitting there (2 of them brought Nintendo's to entertain themselves),

WAY TO GO! I know that the Dave Ramsey seminar/classes going on at church have been life changing for people. We are blessed to be debt free too, accept for our house. We are a cash only kind of family. Yippee!!!

Thanks Amy! WAY TO GO to you also! I'm cash based also (no credit cards)...except I use my debit card not actual "cash". Costco gas is always trying to get me to use their American Express card to buy gas. :( I've been able to hold strong.

Congrats to you all.

Dave is wonderful.
