Did anyone reading this take any pictures? Blog posts without pictures are NO FUN!
I will proceed photoless...
On Friday I left for my first weekend away from the kids and Eric! Between my in-laws and Eric the kids were cared for all day Friday and Saturday. I spent two days relaxing, chatting, eating, walking, shopping, laughing and friendship bracelet making with 9 incredible women whom I've met through MOPS leadership.
Being with a group of solid Christian women who are all at a similar place in life is such a sweet thing. We talked about everything under the sun and nothing was off limits. It was a safe place to share and go deep. It was just a blast!
The greatest thing and really the reason I was able to have such a wonderful time was that I didn't have to worry a bit about the kids. I knew they were in loving hands and were having a blast. They played at parks, at a fun restaurants, played with friends, went on a bike ride, and even had a bath. I am confident they had fun because both of them are wearing new badges of a good time - bruises and scrapes.
