This is the gang: Shawn, me, Nicol, Jennifer and ReneeI am kinda sad that the conference is over...don't get me wrong...it was A LOT of work and I was stressed to the max (mainly about having to stand up and welcome everyone and pray in front of people--so if you were going to ask me to speak to your group about something you may want to re-think that! LOL), but it was so amazing to see God show up and do great things! We had lots of great feedback and are working on some ideas for the months ahead. Well, I am planning and scheming and am going to drag Jennifer and Renee into it with me! SHHH! Don't tell them. God may just get the young (I use that term loosely to describe myself) women of Dalton, GA on fire for Him soon!
So Will has started taking AR tests at school...this working and doing homework and trying to be a wife and mom and take care of my house is hard. I have decided I can't do it all. I realize that something has to give and apparently, by the look of it, it is the house! I hate that for the house. But as my very wise older sister told me once, "You don't have to clean it until it is on the verge of making you or someone in your family sick." Score! I probably have about five more minutes before the airborne illnesses take over!
On the plus side, Caroline (aka-Freaky Ailment Girl) received a clean bill of health last week. Her yucky, unexplained rash is FINALLY gone after 7 months of trying to figure it out and treat it! I can't tell you how excited I am that I do not have to spend an extra 30 minutes after bath time applying lotion, acid gel and skin cancer cream to the 472 bumps on her arms and belly. I have time for more games of pathwords on facebook and that makes me happy!
OK-this is getting long and rambly (no, that is probably not a word) so I am going to wrap it up. I will close with two pictures...one of Mark and the kids. One of me and the kids...it is so hard to get a picture of the four of us, so we compromise!
(My kids don't look happy in the picture with me, but I assure, they love me and we ARE having a good time!)
Blessings to you and yours!
