Back from the Valley

The family returned home today after spending a restful 2-1/2 days with a large part of our church congregation, enjoying the peace and quiet of the Shenandoah Valley. MB really had a great time playing with lots of other kids that she may only see for an hour or so each Sunday; E. charmed everyone with her four-month-old winning personality; and A. and I had the opportunity to spend time with old friends and start relationships with several new friends. It was a great weekend for everyone, and we're so glad that we went.

Alas, like every great vacation, this one had to end, and we returned this afternoon to laundry, resumes, pre-school, yardwork, and the other things that make up large portions of our days. Hopefully this week will be the week that we get the news for which we're waiting; the prayers are continuing, and we'll see what God has in store for us!

As I was growing up our church did something like this, however, the last one happened when my oldest was about 6 months old. SO while all my kids went to the camp over the years, it was never this beautiful multi-generational long weekend that kept our church so strong for so long.

Glad you had a good weekend at Shrine Mont, and good luck with the news!
