Oh my goodness! I am so stinking excited because tomorrow I’m going to the South Bend-Fort Wayne Diocese Women’s Conference and the featured speakers are Scott and Kimberly Hahn.
I’ve never heard Kimberly speak, but I could listen to Dr. Hahn talk all day; he for sure has a radio voice.
Possibly even more exciting is that Leanne from Life Happens When is going to be coming up and meeting me in Indy; then we’ll drive to the conference with a good friend of mine from here.
Leanne and I are going to have a girls night on the town on Friday….but before you are overcome with jealousy….it won’t be too late since we have to leave my house at 5:45 a.m. to meet my other friend and drive to South Bend for the conference which starts at 9. Yikes.
I’m going to need an IV drip of caffeine.
Maggie started pre-school this week. Hold on, hold on. Before you accuse me of trying to get my kid into “Baby Yale”, let me tell you about her preschool.
It’s twice a week for two hours and they (1) play with toys, (2) go to the playground, and (3) study things like circles, apples, and colors.
It’s really like a glorified play-group.
It’s also the reason I am sitting here writing right now. There is a conviently located Starbucks across the street from the pre-school. What could be more perfect than that?
It’s sort of funny. The preschool is run at a Medthodist church, but both of Maggie’s teachers are Catholic, and the woman who I found about the preschool from is part of my Catholic women’s book club (she is also a teacher at the school). I thought that was pretty cool.
I don’t know who cried more when I dropped her off, me or her.
She is most assuredly not a baby anymore.
Sometimes I miss having a baby. Ok, a lot of times. Then on days like today, when I am sitting along, drinking coffee, doing uninterrupted thinking and writing, I think to myself, “Take your time God; This is ok”.
Know what I mean?
It’s funny when people meet us, they usually say if they think Maggie looks like me or Eric. I never know what I’m going to hear!
So, I thought it would be fun to put it to a vote on the blog.
Now here’s Atticus at about the same age:
And here’s one of me:
What do you think?? Keep in mind, if you don’t say me, you’ll be banished forever. Just saying.
Since pre-school is nearly over, I’ll just say:
Have a great weekend! Go see Jen for more quick takes.
