Don't is only temporary! Tomorrow I am flying to Little Rock! I will be gone for 12 days. Here is what is on my agenda.

  • Spend lots of time with my Arkansas BFF, Karon
  • FamilyLife staff wives' retreat. I'm not on staff anymore, but they are letting me come. I can't wait to spend a few days with some of my favorite ladies!
  • Eat at Larry's Pizza, my favorite restaurant in Little Rock
  • Do Ashten's 1st birthday photo shoot. I have done photos of him at newborn, 3 months old, and 6 months old.

3 months

6 months

  • Take my dear friend Stephanie out for frozen custard at Shake's, my favorite dessert place in Little Rock.
  • Go to Thursday morning Bible study at our church. I was in Bible study with the same core group of ladies for 4 years, and oh, how I miss my Thursday girls!
  • Enjoy weather that is less than 75 degrees, which is the lowest temp I have felt in 8 weeks.
  • Help my sis-in-law get ready for her wedding.
  • Take Snapper and Pepper for annual check-ups. We're also having Snapper evaluated for ADHD. Her inability to focus, complete a task, follow directions, remember where she has put stuff, etc. is getting worse, and is starting to affect her at school. We've been waiting since she was 3 to see if she will outgrow it, and she is not outgrowing it. It is time to find out what is going on.
  • Take Snapper to a swim practice with her old team. She is beside herself with excitement!
  • Spend time with a few other friends
  • Work on raising support
  • Play chauffeur to the various family members who are flying in for the wedding
  • Photograph the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner
  • Photograph the wedding--my first wedding on my own. My dad did wedding photography when I was growing up, and I often was his assistant when I was in high school. I am both excited and nervous. Here is the collage photo they sent out in their invitations. Photo credit goes to me. =)

  • Drive home to Orlando
Yup! It's gonna be a great trip. I won't have internet access other than on my phone, so I doubt I'll be blogging while I'm gone. I'm sure I'll have lots to talk about when I get back. So for now, fare thee well, my friends!

Have FUN, Em! I'm so excited for you. The picture of the wedding rings on Ashten's toes is great. Love it.

Looking forward to hearing all about your trip and I'll keep Matt and kiddos in my prayers.
