allen and i were able to get away for a couple days to attend the catalyst conference in dallas. we heard from some amazing speakers and were really challenged in some areas. i also had a rude awakening and further sealed my frusteration with the english language on the drive home. you can read about it here.
heres the week...
sunday, day 125
happy mothers day! me and my momma.
monday, day 126
allens the chaplain for the round rock express, the rangers triple a team. monday they had an afternoon game, so one of the players, brad nelson, came over for dinner monday night. he brought me this bat as a thank you. its his bat from the breast cancer awareness game. it will be hung up next to a couple other autographed bats we have in our new guest room! :-)

wednesday, day 128
a sampling of the graduation invitations we've recieved. tis the season.
thursday, day 129
a group of street artists, i think they were called, were 'creating' in the foyer at the conference. i thought this one was really cool. they just had pieces of cardboard and some wire and a little paint.
friday, day 130
the theme of catalyst was 'take courage'. this wall was available for people to share a verse that gives them courage. some of my favorite quotes from the conference are...
"do you want to be safe, or do you want to be brave?"
"the purpose of life is not to arrive at death safely."
"why do we live a risk averse life, if we truly believe that death has lost its sting?"
saturday, day 131
molly was practicing safe jumping.
another full week is upon us! tomorrow is senior recognition sunday. all the graduates will be recognized in the 2nd service tomorrow morning, then theres a big banquet tomorrow night for the seniors and their families. monday is my birthday! yay! well, maybe not yay. i'm hitting the big 3-0...eek.
thursday the kids and i are spending the day with my mom because allen and my dad will be gone on a church staff day retreat, and saturday is mollys dance recital and my mother in law is coming and staying for 5 days.
