I haven't been able to blog lately, because I've been crazy busy! I've missed it and I miss all my communications with YOU!
The pix are of random silliness with the girls this week!
I don't know where to start? I am 31 1/2 weeks pregnant, but measuring 33 weeks. I will be having an ultrasound next week to see how much she weighs and check the amount of amniotic fluid.
We are moving to a new home. We've painted two bedrooms in a week and still need to deep clean it. We need to get a move on and actually get moved. Besides the time issue with the baby, it's also a busy car season already and Jeff is working many long hours. We've worried and stressed about how and when. Much to our amazement, great friends have offered to help us and it's been greatly generous and more than we've ever expected.
This weekend we were invited home to go the Shrine Circus with Papa, he's a Shriner and truly the ONLY way to ever visit the circus is to go with him. Jeff is a Shriner too and my older brother was a Shrine kid. It's a very sentimental thing. More than all the fun that Papa treats everyone to is being apart and watching him bless kids with a beautiful day of fun and treats. He passes out free tix to ride the animals and do all the special things that most of their parents can't afford, because all of their time and money is invested in caring for their health. We've been on the other side and it's such a blessing.
Jeff can NEVER be gone on Saturday's but he can be gone Sun. and Mon. and we need to go back to KS to get moving supplies and things out of storage. So MOMMY gets to make the decision, take four little girls to the circus with Papa, or wait for daddy to get off of work Sat. (after the circus)and drive five hours one way to load and unload stuff to move. It's just not fair! Oh yeah, did I mention that both of my sisters and two of my brothers and all their kids are going with Papa? Yeah, nice hu!
We had a 7:30am mtg. this morning with a teacher about getting some extra help with a slinking grade. (got EVERYONE up at 6am)
Made time to work at Loving Choices yesterday. Extremely busy there! God sent many woman in crisis situations our way and graciously had the PERFECT volunteers there to assist and minister to each one. What a blessing!
Add at least 15 meals, at least 10 loads of laundry, bible study, choir, kids choir, youth group, 3 trips to the grocery store, 2 trips to the gas station, potty training, recycling center trip, trips to the phone store and bank, started a new accounting and budgeting system for the home, had a surprise party for a teacher, and the normal everyday schedules to this week and it spells CRAZY! (and unfortunately one bad arguement with the husband)
PHEW!!!! I know that I am probably no busier than you, but it's my story and perogative and this week has been a whirlwind. AND it being the time of the year that it is, it doesn't look like it's going to slow down! As a matter of a fact Ammorae was invited to stay the night with a friend and she also announced that she is trying out for Jr. High Cheerleader, which promises to be a busy next two weeks. Only 7 weeks of school left and finals looming.
God, we'll definately be in touch and very personal in the upcoming weeks. I praise you for a life of excitement and the freedom to have choices to make! Thank you for all the busy blessings you've given me, especially the ones with pigtails!
P.S. while I was typing this, Ava (my 1 1/2 yr old) completely sucked down the frappacino that I splurged on when I dropped Ammmorae off at school. It'll be another exciting day!
