MOPS Convention

A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to go to the MOPS convention in Dallas. Four of us from our steering team went; Kathy, Wendy, Lisa, and me. Lauren and Kristy were going to go but they are still nursing their babies and weren't able to come. I also ran into Tara while we were there. We stayed at the Texan Gaylord. We go the hear Plumb,Jaci Valaquez and her husband, and Go Fish perform. Kim Hill lead the praise portion of the service. We missed hearing Avalon since we had to leave early to get back home. I went to some really good workshops. Dr. Gary Chapman spoke about marriage, really good. Then there was one on Kid Concoctions that you can make using everyday items you have at home or from the dollar store. I bought the book and can't wait to make some fun stuff for the boys. My favorite session was on Living with Boys, the speaker was from Co. and has three teenage boys. She was cracking us up with things they have done and how she has had to change since she is rasing boys. The one thing that stood out was the our boys are looking and watching their moms, because we are what they think all girls will be like and compare them to us. It also made me be content with the fact that God blessed me with boys. I will probably always long to have a little girl (I think every girl does, but I'm now okay with only having boys.
