Hey everyone, POG is on Mackinac Island for the next 4 days. We are having a blast with over 3000 women! Here is what I get to look at outside my hotel room:
Here is another shot outside the Grand Hotel where we are staying. How I wish everyone could hear and see the INCREDIBLE messages of Paul Young, author of The Shack... One of the most powerful messages I have heard in years!
Also, Gracia Burnham... She and her husband Martin, served with the New Tribes Mission in the Philippines. They were both kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf group, a militant group of Muslims. In captivity for 376 days...Martin was killed and Gracia injured... Her testimony is heart wrenching and extremely challenging. Check her book out, The Presence Of My Enemies.
We are also enjoying the very talented theater group called, Friends of the Groom.
This has been a nice little get away for me and Dana too especially before Andy comes.
A powerful week for each of us. My cup runneth over!!!!
So, please forgive the short blog but I have to go and sing now.
This blog will be super short as I am writing it from my iPhone. We are spending the week at 3 back to back women's conferences at Mackinac Island in Michigan. We have a blast so far getting to know the women who run the conference, eating lots of fudge (a Mackinac specialty) and wandering the island! Below are the only 3 pics (shame on me) that I've taken- One of our hotel with Denise and Michael in the distance, one of the view out my window, and one of where we are afraid little Andy might be born! Hahahha! Seriously - Leigh is hanging in there but it's good to know we have options!
I'm actually typing this on the plane headed to Mackinac island, MI. I've never been, but have heard great things about it. Shelley and I are going to rent bicycles and ride around the island. Maybe they will have a bicycle built for 2:). I can honestly say my mind is ready for a reset. Maybe this will be a good time for it. We are there all week.
Last week wore me out!!! Although it was all fun, I'm exhausted. It was Homecoming. Every day but one had themes to dress up etc. Then there was the game, Spence's birthday, first high school dance festivities. My parents came in for the weekend. We had to build a volcano etc. lots of fun, but ready to rest. Basically today's blog will consist of some pics from the week.
This was famous people day. Price and his buddies dressed up like One Direction. All the girls wanted their autographs. Hehe.
This was twin day with Spence and his buddies Rob and George. I can't say the name of the group because I didn't know it stood for something not so nice. Ooops. I just thought the costume was funny. I was impressed that Spence wasn't embarrassed to dress that way being a freshman in the high school halls.
The theme for homecoming this year due to the Olympics and elections. Was Red, White, and Big Blue. Here was patriotic day.
Happy 15th bday Spence!!!!
Best bday present ever. Spence got to play in his first Varsity football game. The Senior QB Matt Hiissong helped the team to get way up in the first half allowing Spence to play the whole second half. Here is Spence about to go in. #4. Coach talking to both of them.
After game dinner and late movie of opening night "Here comes the Boom". Boys said it was hilarious. I did not go. Stu drew the late movie shift.
Homecoming dance. Spence and his friend Anna. My my girls sure look grown up these days:). He had fun with his friends. If you ask me though, what happened to just a dance after the game. These festivities have turned into such a big deal. It almost seemed like another prom.
Well that was my week. Thanks for letting me give you a peek into it. Have a blessed day.
