In Orlando

Well, I'm here! We've arrived in Orlando Florida for the 2007 National Youth Gathering -- all day today and tomorrow, 35,000 excited, energized, hormonal teenagers will descend upon the city ready to have fun and celebrate their Christianity. It's gonna be an amazing time!
Our trip was okay -- although I cried like crazy saying goodbye to my boys! It was REALLY hard! I'm not sure why it was so rough on me! Asher didn't really understand. He kept lookng at my tear-streaked face and saying "Cry??" over and over. Other than that, the trip was mostly uneventful. My lovely pinched nerve made a terrific appearance for most of the day, so sitting on an airplane was pure torture. By the time we touched down in Atlanta for a layover, I was in tears. Pretty rough.
But today I'm feeling much better! We're all set up in our fancy MAC computer lab here in the convention center, ready to create newsletters, videos, photographs, DVD's, booklets and everything else that all these amazing volunteer professionals are capable of doing. It should be incredible!

Oh no! Your pinched nerve came back? I'm very sorry to hear that. (And wondering if mine will come back in subsequent pregnancies ... I guess I better enjoy my comfort while I can!)

Hope it's not too sweltering in Florida. Take care, Mommy!
