What a Great Surprise!

Turns out, Chris is great at multi-tasking. I can't provide commentary on the actual events that were taking place this morning since I am in Charleston but I can speculate.

Look at my precious baby! Aunt Jan says Owen is going to be my Randy. He might just be.
How could a momma kick this smile out even if he is 35 years old?
Now this one, I am not going to lie; is good at soccer. I know. I know. EVERY momma says this, but it's true. Mark my word, this one is just going to get better.

I have always said the one thing I worry about the most when it comes to Ethan is his lack of confidence. When I had to fill out "what I hope he gains from kindergarten the most" when I enrolled him I said I want him to find his voice.
To speak up, to gain confidence, not be afraid. And he is getting there with school, but with soccer! WOW! Just WOW! He is at home on a soccer field. He is not afraid to head right into a group of kids to go after the ball. He is assertive and even aggressive.
He knows how to use his feet to guide the ball where he wants to go.
He can stop the ball and turn it in a different direction to keep it away from the other team. He just knows what he is doing. This one. This one, I am going to enjoy watching.
Congratulations Emmie! You have come so far. I can't wait to see what God has in store for you.
Oh, and then there's this little girl.
I can't wait to get my hands back on her tomorrow.
Back to the conference. They are giving away a cruise for 2 tonight. I could never be so lucky, but might as well show up. :-)

Kudos to our man, Chris! He did a fine juggling act yesterday....and came through shining! Glad you had fun at your conference this weekend. I so need that experience. I attended the Women of Faith conference in Philly two years ago. 40,000 women. I went alone for the day. It was so completely incredible. I think I can "thank" Sandi Patty for causing hearing damage as I listened to her doing her best to shatter glass up to 100 miles away with that incredible voice. Ha!

Big hugs as you start the week.
