Weekend

My retreat was a lot of fun this weekend. It was nice to be able to see people that I don't see very often any more. When I go, I still feel like I'm a part of the group, which I still don't really feel like at our current church. If it wasn't a forty minute drive, I'd want to be going there on a regular basis.

On the baby front, Dorothy is now cutting her first little teeth. For the most part she's been handling it really well, just drooling and chewing on everything in sight. She's really in to grabbing everything now. Still not sitting up yet, but I think that should be coming soon. I would think she'd be sitting up by over 7 months, but I guess she's a bit slower on the physical milestones. She'll probably start doing everything all at once and I'll be in for it then:)

An opportunity has come up to go on a trip to Israel. Over the weekend the speaker said they would be taking a trip in November for 10 days. If I can come up with $2600 for the trip, I should be able to go. That would be nothing short of a miracle, but I'm really hoping to be able to go. It was amazing to hear about all the Jewish customs and traditions and all the symbolism being a picture of Christ. It really connected everything together for me. I think going to Israel would solidify things more for me and make it a lot more real. We'll see what happens with that one.

Glad you had a good weekend!
Don't worry about her not sitting yet kids do that in their own time and since she is a rolly polly baby she's got a little more to hold up! She's so cute though and remember as soon as she is doing anything your gonna wish she was just laying on the floor again! I still wish it sometimes....
