Our trip to Virginia and Washington DC

We have been so busy as usual. Lily and I made a trip to Washington, DC. I attended the Talk for a Lifetime Conference and we spent time with my Aunt Erms and cousin Di and her family. It was a quick but fun trip. Di has 5 children and Lily loved spending time with 4 of them. Matt was out of state at a camp in Colorado. We really missed seeing him. We all went to see Lily's favorite movie of the summer, Hairspray. It was her third time seeing it. She loved singing the songs from the show with Stephanie and Caroline. She had a great time playing with John. She was a little shy around her oldest cousin, Chris, the high school senior who was gone every morning for football practice. She was just warming up to him when we left. I think she had the most fun when I was at the conference. Diane and the kids took her to Libby Lu where she had the Hanna Montana make-over complete with blonde wig and microphone. I hear she was quite a hit at the mall. She continues to wear the wig daily. I'll post pictures as soon as Diane sends them. I had a wonderful time seeing the Phantom of the Opera at the Kennedy Center. Diane and Steve also took me to dinner when they picked up from the conference one evening. We loved our time with Aunt Erms, Diane, Steve and all of the kids. Lily is still talking about the trip, "Hey Mom, remember last year when we...." We are working on the time concepts. Thank you to all for our special time!

For those keeping track, referrals came out this week. China referred another 7 days of Log in Dates. Our wait continues to grow. We are praying that things speed up soon!
