Well, it's been a busy day. Smart Guy left for the airport at 4:30 this morning to fly to the Youth Specialties conference in Atlanta and I'll be leaving tomorrow morning for the same place. So today I've been running around trying to get everything ready for a weekend of four different people caring for our children. I've still got laundry in the washer and I've got food cooking on the stove so my MIL can just love on her grandkids while we're gone instead of cooking.
I can't wait for the conference. It's the best youth ministry conference in the world. The worship is like no other you'll experience elsewhere... 6,000 youth workers being lead in worship by Chris Tomlin or The David Crowder band for 7 General Sessions during the weekend, and countless workshops to choose from on any topic you may want to learn more about. I have to admit I'll probably steer more toward the Emerging Church workshops more than anything. Of course the best part of the weekend will simply being able to be with my Smart Guy with no children. Every other time we've been to the YS conference together we've had a group of youth sponsors with us, and we slept girls in one room and guys in another to save the church money, but this time I actually get to share a bed with my honey. Yeah!!!
BTW, I've been meaning to mention that Cleanin' Cuz had her baby last week. I think she was 7 pounds 4 oz and 19 1/2 inches long if I remember correctly. Please pray for them. As anyone with more than two small people knows, that third one can make a big difference in the beginning while you're still trying to figure out the ropes of a life that's no longer a one to one parent/child ratio.
Well, much to do, so goodnight friends!!
