The Women of Worth retreat was wonderful. The 'girls' in my group were, Sr. Charlene Woods, Sr. Vicki Haus, Sr Tammy McKenzie, Sr. Ruth DeLong, Sr. Melanie (I didn't catch her last name),me and not pictured Sr. Nara Hartman. All of the women except the lady next to me Sr. Woods and myself had been to the WOW retreat's before. I plan on going next year. The fellowship was wonderful, the rooms great and the food delicious.

This is Sr. Lorina Glick. She lead the meetings. Did you know that the first WOW was not in the United States, but in Paupa New Guinea. Sr. Glick started it there as a missionary, when she came home she started the group here. Hopefully if the funds can be raised some of the ladies from Paupa New Guinea will come for the retreat next year.

Much to my surprise I saw at least one old friend that I knew. Charlene Wolford? Her group of ladies brought a big bus from PA, her group also had the skit on Saturday night, whic was FUNNY. Charlene should me pictures of her children. I couldn't believe how they had grown. The last time that I saw the girls was when they were 2 they are grown up now.

Today is Thursday the 17th of May and for the first time tomorrow I am leaving Sammi in someone else's care for overnight. Bethany and Sammi are going to be staying at my friend Ruth's home while I go on a Women of Worth retreat. I am looking forward to the retreat but not the absence of being away from my children. I am afraid that I am from the school that only I can take care of my children the best. So we will see if I ever get to go on a short vacation again.

This is the playhouse that my brother and I built for the girls, it has been painted red (Beth's choice) and furniture has been added I will take a picture of it and post it later.

We decided to let the girls paint some of there playhouse except Sammi was much more interested in painting herself. Had a lot of fun giving the girls a bath that night. HAHA

If you notice in the basket is a picture of the newest member of the dogs a little girl puppy, which has been named Anna for the time being. Beth has adopted the puppy and Sammi loves to play with it also.

Sammi loves to help Earl with feeding the dogs
