We're back! Our trip to Helen, Georgia was a great success. We got to do alot of things, but that will be coming soon. Today, I want to share with you about the things we did NOT get to do.

We didn't get to go hiking. The reasons were two fold. One, it rained on one of the days. Two, by the time the rain was gone, our friend Sam had arrived and he did not bring anything but flip flops. I was so sad!

We didn't get to do the corn maze. Because of the above stated reason.

We didn't carve our pumpkins. We had brought them in the car from Tennessee, but by the end of the day on Saturday, rain had moved back in and we didn't want to mess up the inside of Ian's grandparents house.

I tell you all of this so you would understand if I told you I was disappointed.

But I wasn't.

At all.

Which is a really big step for me! I'm such a planner/organizer, that when things don't go as I plan, I have a semi nervous breakdown and face deep DEEP disappointment.

It's been a real struggle to deal with, but this weekend really showed me how much I have grown over the last year or so! Yay!

More on what we DID get to do tomorrow!

I'm like you...such a planner, and I get upset when things don't go the way I plan them. Good job not letting it get to you this weekend!
