so, I went to Texas

Over the next week I'll be sharing a lot from my trip to Texas last week for the National Right to Life Convention. Thank you again to everyone who sponsored me. It was an incredible 3 days. I learned a lot. I couldn't write fast enough to keep up with all the information and ideas. I am ready to put what I learned and heard into action. Stay tuned.

In the mean time, I just wanted to share some pictures from the trip. Baby Eli went with me. Isaac stayed home with his dad and spent a night at grandma and grandpa's house.

We flew out on Wednesday night and home on Saturday night. Boy, was I exhausted at the end of it all. But boy, am I glad I went.
