Hello everyone! Sorry it has been a couple of days. Let me assure you that I have not been sitting in the recliner eating Bon-Bons! I want to report first off that my hubby and 2 teenage daughters have arrived safely in Nicaragua as of 8:00 tonight. It was pretty hard to send them off on the plane without me. I can’t even imagine how hard it would be for me to send them without Charles. I am really excited for them, I just hate that I can’t call them or text them (no international calling plans in our house) and we are SO ACCUSTOMED to our electronic devices! If you would like to keep up with the Youth Ministry Team that is in Nicaragua, CLICK HERE and it will take you to the right spot! This BLOG that the church is doing will be my only chance to keep up with them…….hope they post a photo of the girls, but there are about 100 of them there so it might not happen!
Yesterday we had a birthday party (one month late) for Lindsey. She was determined to squeeze it in before the trip. It was hard for me to pull off, but here are a couple of photos. We had a swimming party at a friend’s house and it was really not too painful for me 🙂 Malachi took a short dip in the water, followed by playing with Sarah’s goggles and eating all the snacks! He never turns down food!
Now that the kids are off to Nicaragua, I can focus on getting packed and ready for Convention. I will be gone all week long and I plan to have some “surprise entries” posted for you guys. I can get them ready and then they will post on the day I want them to. Pretty cool, huh? So, I have some stuff I made this weekend in preparation for Convention and I will hold off until Monday to start showing it to you……….then you won’t be so sad while I’m gone!
Thanks for hanging in there with me this week and all the kind words from many of you! It has been a very long week with many different little stressers. Honestly, the convention couldn’t have come at a better time. I am ready for some “girl-time” and some fun! Laughter is such good medicine!!!
More on Monday! Dawn
