~Visiting family...to keep my mind off of my swollen ankles and wanting baby to come~

THANK YOU TO EVERY ONE WHO HAS LEFT NICE COMMENTS AND HAS BEEN PRAYING FOR BABY AND I!!!
When I went to my midwife last Wednesday...I asked her how she would feel about my going to Indiana for a few days...and she said that she felt comfortable with my going. So, I left Ohio last Wednesday afternoon and went with my family to our last deputation service in Nobleville, IN. God helped us and we had a good service. Then the kids and I stayed with my dear parents on Thursday-Saturday while Phillip went to Shelbyville, IN and held a 3 day revival for the Spanish church there. God helped Phillip with his revival, and we had a lot of fun being with my parents. Also on Saturday my Moma was to speak at a Mother/Daughter tea in Carthage, IN and had invited my girls and I to join her. (My sister and her girls couldn't make it due to back and transportation problems. =( ) Moma did a beautiful job speaking and the tea was just lovely...with about 80 in attendance. On Sunday we attended Daddy and Moma's church in Westfield and helped out some with the music. Of course Moma made a yummy Sunday dinner (all of her meals were yummy =) and we decided to stay over and go to their service on Sunday night. They had some company in after church and we all enjoyed visiting together. On Monday we left there and came to visit our family, Phillip's brother Michael, his wife Beth and their 2 year old son Isaiah. Beth is also expecting another baby in November. We plan to stay here until Wednesday then go to our Christian Nation Church for Wednesday night and back to my sister Laura's house. We're having fun visiting with Michael and Beth, and our kids are enjoying playing with their cousin Isaiah.
As far as news about baby and I...things are pretty much the same. I'm walking a lot, having some contractions, but not much has changed. I needed the family time in IN and here with Michael and Beth to get my mind off of wanting baby to come. =D I have lots of pics to post when I get a chance. Again Thanks for your prayers...and please keep them up. God knows the very right time for our baby to make his appearance. =)

That can really help! I have done that a quite a bit lately. We love you all, and am sure looking forward to that future post about your little one's arrival!
