My Big Girl ...and a Tiny Baby

Wanted to get a picture of my big girl riding a motorcycle like a pro. She went camping with the Nardones and they all ride motorcycles (even Brenda-go girl!) I think Christine is hooked now. I'm proud of myself for making it through the weekend while she was gone. Now I just need to make it through her first camp experience. Winter camp is next weekend and I have to admit I'm a little nervous (windy roads in a big bus.) I know I don't have a choice; I need to let her have her independence and remember that the Lord loves her more than I do. Oh, and along those lines of trusting God, I'm very excited to say the that we found out last week that we're pregnant!!!! We are so excited we can't stand it; but, I do have some concern that is preventing me from the joy I could be having. I miscarried a couple months ago so now I'm just much more cautious and not getting too excited until I have confirmation that everything is Ok. I'm trusting the Lord implicitly but also hoping that it's His will that this baby be healthy. I will be getting another ultrasound on Thursday and I'm hoping and praying to see a heartbeat. I will end with the words that keep coming to my mind, "Be still and know that I am God."
