Looking Forward to the Weekend

For once this week I am looking forward to tomorrow. I had benchmark testing this morning in preparation for the kids taking the TAKS test, staff training after school, and now I am just plumb wore out. All three girls have basketball stuff going on this weekend but that's about it. I am may not be much of a planner but I am planning on relaxing this weekend. Bryn slept through the night last night, but fell asleep before 8:30 in our living room chair so I didn't get a chance to tell her two things to dream about. She was super sweet about me taking my trip next weekend. She asked me who was going to tell her two things to dream about. I told her that someone else could do that when I'm gone, but she said no one else could come up with such good things to dream about. I guess she doesn't realize two things: 1. I will still talk to her while I'm away-- that's what phones are for
2. this week I have been using ideas from other people for her dreams. I'm going to have a great time on my trip I'm sure of it, but I will definitely miss my girls. I think the last time I was gone from them was when Jess was stuck in California and I flew out to be with her.

Have a great trip, man. My prayers will be with you for a safe and relaxing trip. Prayers also for the girls as well. Will you be updating the blog while you're away? I hope so, but if not, that's cool, too.

In Him and around the corner,
