ok, seriously, i promise promise promise times ten that i will put some stories up this week. i've got some good ones on the kids I've been meaning to post for weeks, and I've got to make it happen before i forget them!!
the kids and i just got back into town a couple hours ago from north texas. we went up to see my dad lead worship at his new church; today was his first day. plus i got to be with my mom on mothers day, so it worked out well.
he did a great job. his new church is wonderful, and i can really see that its a good fit and the Lord is going to use him there. now they just have to find somewhere to live!!
allen and i were at a church leadership conference thursday and friday, so i've been doing a lot of traveling and driving and sleeping in not my own bed this week. needless to say, i'm looking forward to my own in about an hour and a half, give or take.
heres the week!
molly was on a photo kick, and took this actually not too bad picture of allen and i.
my mom moved in with us this afternoon (she'll be here for a couple weeks, till she finishes up her part-time job at the school) and brought this game with her. its called headbandz. as you can see, you wear a card on your head, and can only ask yes or no questions to figure out what you are before time runs out.
i took colby to chick-fil-a's mother son date 'knight'. we had a great time!!
colby drew this picture of our snake, jake, eating a mouse. which reminded me that i needed to do exactly that. thanks colby.
our first day at the catalyst conference in plano. i absolutely love this conference and plan to go every year till i die, or they stop doing it. this years theme was Be Present. we heard from andy stanley, john c. maxwell, perry noble, matt chandler, and were led in worship by kari jobe, gungor, israel houghton. thats just the tip of the iceberg. its seriously amazing.
the sunset on our way home. i don't often take pictures of the sky, but i thought it was super cool.
i got to look at a couple houses with mom and dad. they put an offer on this one, and are in negotiation on it with the seller. so they'll either be here in a couple weeks, or keep looking. :-/
my birthday is wednesday, so i'm hoping to get in a dinner with a couple of my best girlfriends this week, and a date with my husband. we're taking the kids to sea world on friday and saturday is mollys dance recital. all that to say, it should be a good week for pictures!!
be blessed and happy mothers day!!
