My husband and daughter and I are at a conference this week. Today we drove for what seemed like an eternity to get here. In reality it was only about 6 hours. Which is like 5 hours too long in my opinion.
Grandma is babysitting the boys. Hopefully they have a lot of fun together.
The conference is for the pastor's and their wives in our district (Saskatchewan and Manitoba). Basically it is like church for pastor's for a few days. Sort of. It is a nice time to see people we don't get to see very often and have a few days with no ministry-related responsibilities.
Olivia was super good on the drive. We were driving through a blizzard and huge snow drifts for the first couple of hours and Olivia slept. Luckily Doug and I managed to stay awake despite our severe sleep deficit. I took some riveting pictures of the incredible scenery... nothing like gray skies, blowing snow and the prairies to make for some great photo ops.
Ok. Not really. The pictures are incredibly boring... as was the scenery and the drive.
I really hope we get some much needed rest this week. I also hope my poor mom manages to have a fun time with my kids and that Aiden continues to get better!
I always find it really hard to leave my kids. Even though I KNOW they will be fine. I KNOW they love their grandma and I know she will take excellent care of them. It is still hard to leave. Especially when Aiden has been so sick. Of course he is a lot better now but he is still not 100%.
Anyway, it is late and today has been a very long day. So I am off to HOPEFULLY sleep. Nighty night.
