I went with my bible study this weekend to a self-created retreat. We went to a retreat center in the mountains of TN and had an amazing time. We had study/prayer time, praise time, testimonies, and even had time to take a small hike in the middle of the day on Saturday. It was so nice and so very needed. Eliza went with us seeing as she was a girl too, and she LOVED it. She literally just sat in the middle of the circle and talked to EVERYONE. She was the center of attention and she loved it. I have never heard her talk as much as she did this weekend. I suppose she learned from example!
Our attempt at a self photograph.... two of the girls stayed behind in the cabin to talk, and we unfortunately never got one of all of us.
The boys had their own boys weekend. Their cousins came up for the day bringing our new adopted dog Scout. They have spent hours throwing ball for her the past few days. I think everyone involved loves it! We have wanted a dog for quite a long time and Scout seems to be perfect for us. She was a family dog that had to be given away because of space.... and she is so much fun. 4-5 yrs old with lots of energy and very well trained! Seriously, what could be better!
