Monday update and a break

Libby-11 and I had a nice breakfast Saturday. This is my child of few(er) words than some of the others, so much of our time together was eating in companionable silence. Ah, it just doesn't get much better than this.

I wanted to thank everyone who posted encouraging words about missions for Allie-15! She is so pumped! In fact, EVERYONE is excited around here. This morning at breakfast, Annie-7 looked over at me and said, "I wonder where I'll go for my mission trip when I'm 16?" So fun to see everyone's world being expanded and hearts opened to share Jesus with others.

I'm going to take a little break for a week or so. As I mentioned last week, Dennis and I are heading out of town later this week, and it will take me all week to figure out what to wear I have a lot to do to get ready. We'll be gone four nights - I do believe this is the LONGEST we will have been away from the kids, EVER!

But they will be in good hands (grandparents') so I will try not to worry about what I know I will forget to tell Grandmother and Granddaddy, and just enjoy the time with my man.

Ruthie-5 asked me yesterday, with a look of disgust combined with hopefulness, "Will y'all just be SMOOCHING the whole time?"

Well, as a matter of fact, yes. Do you have a problem with that?

See you next week!

So excited for your trip. And Allie's trip. (And Annie's trip! :-)).

I love that picture of you and Libby. She's beautiful! (You are too!)

Thanks for the email- if I can think of more specific missions-trip-y things to pass on I'll email them :-)

Fly safe!!! love to you!

I hope Allie's trip is WONDERFUL! And I hope you're having a fun break. I've fallen out of touch with so many people this winter, and I've MISSED you!
