The girls in our Sunday School class went on a little get away this weekend. They went on one last spring and I had just had Hollis so I didn't go so I was so excited to go this time.
One of the girls in our class' family has a cabin about an hour from where we live that's way out in the woods. It's big and open and had plenty of room for all 13 girls that went to sleep.
We went Friday night and came back Saturday night. We split up the meals and took tons of food and just had the best time hanging out, laughing, talking, and eating. It was SO much fun! We missed all the girls in our class who didn't get to go.
Because y'all read my blog and know me so well - I want you to know my friends. I ADORE these girls. There is something about having Christian friends right in your stage of life who will laugh with you and pray with you and encourage you. I don't even know if most or all of my friends even read my blog - but I'm going to write about how special each one is. I think I will always look back in my older age whether I'm still friends with this same circle (which I could only DREAM for) or whether we have all moved on and remember fondly these girls who helped me survive the early mothering years.
Maegan and Rachel - they are two of our staff wives. And I L-O-V-E them! Maegan makes me laugh almost harder than anyone. She's also my style idol. But she is on FIRE for the Lord and has a walk with Him that makes me want to know Him more. She encouraged me so much this weekend as a mom and just gave me a lot of wisdom on praying for my girls. And Rachel is possibly my favorite person in the whole world. She is SO beautiful inside and out and she has 3 little boys that Harper is SMITTEN with and I would be thrilled if she ever married one of them. Rachel is the most fun person I have ever known. She just brings pure joy to every circumstance. She is one of the Godliest girls I have ever known but she also makes me laugh until I cry.
Jessica on the left is from Oklahoma and I love her. She is just down home and fun but she is also a smart business woman and so stylish. She has a great job and works hard and also is an awesome mom to two cute little boys. She is super athletic and makes me want to take up running. She is just such a thoughtful person and always makes me laugh.
Ashley is this beautiful girl who doesn't know she's beautiful. She's so kind and sweet and quietly confident. She has the most beautiful family too. She is someone who just makes you happy to be around her. I just love Ashley.
Scott kept the girls this weekend and he did great (minus about 157 texts he sent me) ha! I think he REALLY appreciated me by the time I got back. So much so that this afternoon he cleaned the whole house for me! ha! He's a good man!
If there is one thing I want to ever encourage any of you to do it's to first find a relationship with Jesus but second to find a good church and get plugged in to a Sunday School class or life group and be apart of a church family. You will never regret either of those things.
