I feel like I am just regaining my bearings after the Pure In Heart Conference in Lake Charles last weekend! We had such a wonderful time! I totally failed my Twitter followers in regard to updates from the conference. I actually turned my phone off so it wouldn't be a distraction, so I didn't tweet hardly at all! Suggestion: Follow Danya. She tweeted lots! :) It was great serving with my daughter as we spoke to the 11-12 year old girls about having and maintaining a pure heart in thought, words, relationships, and modesty. There is nothing like having a beautiful witness to the truth at your side when you are trying to make a point with a tweenager! :)
How I have grown to love the team that serves in the Pure In Heart ministry. They are such a great bunch of godly women, and I am so blessed every time we are together. (None of us take near enough pictures, unfortunately, so that is something we will really have to work on! LOL) I usually need a day or two after an event to settle back into "real" life (and my "real" energy level when not fueled by the adrenaline of a conference!), but I really hit the ground running this week. David need new cleats before the boys' baseball game Monday, which was two hours away. So we were headed to Academy Sports before I was even ready to get my game face on! Literally! :)

Upper: I love names, and since my job was to mark people's names off a list for a luncheon, it was right up my alley! I even met a kid named Abraham Lincoln! (I actually didn't comment, either. I figure he gets enough of that.) And a lot of homeschoolers, like me, name their kids with the same first initial, i.e. Danya, David, and Derek. When people have a lot of children, it is interesting the names they come up with in order to keep the theme going. (One of the funnest parts of having kids is naming them, right?) Downer: Gregg Harris was actually on my list, but he never showed up for the luncheon! :(
So Wednesday was my collapse day, and Thursday, we were back out to the baseball field, but it was not a beautiful spring day like Monday was. Nope, it was a freezing cold day and by the third inning I was watching from the car! Basebrrrrr! Not fun for this mom, that's for sure!
Anyone heading for the Alabama Homeschool Expo in Montgomery in a couple of weeks? Let me know, because I would love to meet you there!
