Women Of Joy!

This past weekend was Women of Joy. I look forward to this weekend every year. It was a little bittersweet for me this year though. This would be the first time leaving Michael overnight. Andrew had the weekend off, so it worked out great. I knew Michael was in great hands with Andrew, but I was still nervous about leaving him. We left Thursday afternoon, which was new this year. Usually we leave Friday afternoon, but it was great getting there a day early, and having time on Friday to do some stuff, rather than having to rush around. We stayed in huge cabins again this year. Our cabin slept 20 people, and the other cabin slept 10. This year, there were a bunch of girls going that all went to youth group together 10-15 years ago. It was so great to see everyone again.
Here are the "adults" that were in our cabin.

And here are all the "kids."

Most of us are married and have children, but to our moms,

we are still just a bunch of teenagers.And this is the women who planned the entire weekend! She does a great job planning everything, and without her, this weekend wouldn't even happen. Thanks Mom!! As far as the conference goes, it was OK. Not the best one I've ever been to. Here is the link, if you would like to see who the speakers were for the weekend. I most enjoyed Liz Curtis Higgs. She was funny, but had some great stuff to say. Casting Crowns did a concert Saturday night and it was very good. But by Saturday, I was really missing Michael, and I was ready to be home.
The weekend was a great time of fellowship, and just spending time with girls, was a blessing. We laughed so hard, and laughter is good for the soul.
