It was FABULOUS! It was so nice to be away! Most of all it was great to get to visit with GREAT friends and then get to spend some time just the two of us. We started off in KY visiting friends. We spent the first few nights with the Gillis family. They are always so much fun to hang out with. Ike and I always leave and are just amazed at how much they have going on and how laid back they both appear to be.Craig family. We got Emily set up with a blog while I was there, and I am really excited to be able to read along with their story! If you go back far enough on my blog you will see I ask for prayers for this family. Emily has started sharing their journey, and it is a pretty amazing one. Ike and I so enjoyed hanging out with them, and fell in love with their girls! We have been friends with them for a long time, especially Emily and I. She was one of the wonderful #7 girls that I lived with in college, and love to death! This trip I felt like we all bonded more than ever. I think friendships change over time, and I am so glad to see our friendship with them grow like it has. I know Ike and I left feeling challenged in our relationship with the Lord, and there is really nothing as important as that.
