Here we are at the other end of a very, very busy weekend. Michael's mom and sister flew in to attend the 2010 True Woman conference with me downtown at the convention center. Michael had to go to Chicago to participate at a conference of his own. My mom and sister flew to Long Island for the weekend. Between all of that, we've been making multiple trips to the airport!
The conference was wonderful!! I am so glad I had the opportunity to attend. I've come back encouraged and refreshed. There were many wonderful speakers, including Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Janet Parshall, Mary Kassian, and Joni Erickson Tada. It was just nice to be with 6,100 other like-minded women.
I also enjoyed the band they organized to be there, headed by Keith and Kristyn Getty. I had never heard of them before but really enjoyed their music.
Everyone really enjoyed hearing from Joni Erickson Tada, who had to speak via video because of her current struggles with breast cancer.
Half an hour after we got home, we headed across the street for a very cool birthday party!!! It was a carnival theme and we all had fun.
It was great to see our nephew, Niko, and our niece, Stella, and of course Nicole and Mom L. (and Joe too!!!)
Laura has gained 3 ounces over the weekend which is good news since last week she weighed in less than she had a month ago. Right now she is 10 pounds 1 ounce and 5 months today. I still have to post her 4 month pictures, and I guess I better take some 5 month ones!
