A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to give a talk. I almost started crying and then I was told the topic, Enduring to the End. :) very fitting. I thought, for sure all of my trails and tribulations could fill up 10 to 15 min :) so Heavenly Father sent me some more. It was a tough week! But, that talk has blessed me week after week since then. No, I did not stand up and recite all the many trials I've faced these last nine months, but in preparing for the talk I learned how to Endure to the End "well". I can't say that I have perfected it, but in the last month when I have felt that I could not take another day, another hour or minute of this, the words of my talk have seeped back into mind and reminded me what I need to do. So one more week! All I know, is that one week from tomorrow, I better, at least be in the hospital delivering this baby!

Prior to the race, the International Motor Speedway holds several events that are open to the public. As is customary in this wonderful city of Indianapolis, there is even a family day. Damond had to work during the family day, so we decided to go to one of the practice days. We have been wanting to take the boys here since we moved here! I mean, come on Cars' is our life, right? Of course, right as we are getting ready to go it starts raining, so we were really worried that we were not going to be able to see the race cars practice, but we still found some cool things to look at.
We took them to Monster Truck Jam back in January and they have loved Monster Trucks ever since!
We climbed up to the stadium seats and watched as the race trucks dried the tracks... or at least that is what we concluded they were doing :) (We know nothing about nascar!)

During Damond's break, we decided that it would be a fun day trip. And it was! It was so interesting to see all these historic planes up close and learn more about them.
The inside of this small museum was filled with parts of large airplanes, many little airplanes encased, and other stuff :D Obviously, the big planes the kids could climb into were their favorites!
The above picture is a little too foreshadowing for me... I don't think I could handle my kids signing up for the armed forces! ( I doubt many mother's can)
