Home at Last

We left ICRS at about noon Wednesday. The girls went to Disney for the rest of the day, and I stayed at the hotel and made notes about writing projects to propose and to read (and stay off my knee!). They went again on Thursday and I moved out by the pool for the day (in long capris, knee brace and tank top) to plan and read. I have pretty funny tan lines now. (Well, burn lines really!)

They stayed at the dance party quite a while.

Hanging out at the pool Friday before we drove up to Tallahassee to hang out. 

We arrived home shortly after noon yesterday. We had a lot of books to unload and am still sorting them out.

Today Jessica and I have nursery in the morning, and I have team kid in the evening. This is my next to last Sunday to have Jasmine in my group. Next Sunday we will be in Chicago, and the next Sunday in Elkhart, IN. Then I have her one more Sunday before she promotes to the middle school group!!!! I'm not ready for that.

Right now I'm rereading Steven James' The Pawn, Mary Higgins Clark's I've Heard that Song Before, Randy Alcorn's Deadline, Jeff Gerke's The Art of Writing Christian Fiction and Robin Carroll's Injustice for All. This is the first book I've read by her and I got it at the convention. I got a pre release copy of Karen Kingbury's The Bridge that will be releasing in October and I read it the first day the girls went to Disney. It's shorter than her other books.

What are you reading?

I'm reading a cozy mystery, Books Can be Decieving by Jenn McKinlay and the second book in the Chronicles of the Red King by Jenny Nimmo.

Cozy mysteries can be fun. I have read some by Mindy Starns Clark. Steven James' stuff is pretty gruesome so I may need something like that after I finish his.

I'm reading about parenting difficult children- the nurtured heart approach I think it is called. I just finished the happiness project book before that.

I probably need that book! The twins went out of their way to see how much they could get into while I was out of town. So disappointing.
