A First

**UPDATED 9/9/08**
The weekend away in Las Vegas was great! The conference was incredible...I'm sure that I'll share some of what I learned as the months go on.

Being away was great for both of us. I came back to a little girl that was happy to see me. Even better, she's quite attached to her Daddy now. :) It's a great thing to be away, miss your family, and then be reunited with them.

We've enjoyed lots of silly moments since I returned on Sunday night. She greets Daddy with a little dance now, and asks for him with a huge grin while he's at work.

I'm so glad that I took a step towards something new, and it turned out so well. I know that God's hand was in it through each day, hour, minute that we were apart.


I am sitting on pins and needles! My mom and I are leaving, this morning, for a 3 day/2 night trip, just us. Yes, that means that this Mommy will be leaving my precious little girl home with Daddy.

That may not be a big deal to some of you, but this is a first for me. I have not spent the night away from her - EVER. She is turning 20 months this weekend, so I know that we will both survive. My heart is still struggling to stay calm, knowing that we will be apart for 3 days.

This is the first of many adventures for this year for our family, and I'll keep you posted how this one turns out......
