Ok ...another update.

Well went to the doctor today and no progress. So I have a scheduled induction for next Friday if nothing happens before( I am due on Monday-Labor Day-appropriately- so I would love to go on my own before next weekend!!) If nothing happens before next Wednesday I will have a sonogram then to make sure everything is looking ok. So the clock ticks it is in God's hands until next Friday ...then it's in my dr's hands. Either way this could be my last weekend with only 2 children (unless I go tonight!) So that is the scoopage.

Oh the mystery number ...................the winner is Ms. Layton-you are crazy girl if you think my due date got pushed back....NOT.....just kidding. In all thousand and twenty-eight are the amount of diapers I received as gifts from 2 baby showers. Can you believe it?? I was just looking at the stacks of packs of diapers and began to add up and just couldnt believe it. That should get me through a few weeks right??


What do you think this number means?

New blog design

Just wanted to share the resource where I got my new blog design-I happened to be checking out a friend of mine's blog and she had posted about So there you go -I can't take credit for creating it myself.

Olympic Fun!!

One great thing about homeschooling you can adapt your curriculum to current events, so this week we had a mock Olympics in our front yard with the cousins. They participated in a torch run, opening ceremonies (they each made a flag of their own design), and 5 events which included: discus (paper plate converted into a discus), shot put(big blog of wet paper towels), marshmallow on the spoon relay, standing on one leg endurance competition and water balloon toss. All of the kids received medals too!! The kids had a great time. Here are a couple pics from the afternoon.

Horse sighting....

Just had to share. We had this horse wander onto our property this week.

Due Date??

I am in total denial of my due date and I am not sure why. With my 2 children I was not like this at all. I was totally patient (to a point) and did not expect any action until that time. With this one it has been different as I have already mentioned to a few of you. So I just need to relax and let the next 11 days go by as if it is something that has to be done. I went to the Dr again today and no real news-so the journey continues on. I just have to remember to be patient-it's all in God's timing. Thanks for all your support!!! Hope my family and friends in Florida are making it through all this rain from Fay. Love you all!!

I am officiallly from the south.

Well it happened yesterday. I fried something. I dont think I would ever say that I have fried anything after losing weight several years ago and trying to eat somewhat healthy. Now I eat fried things occasionally when I go out to eat of course, but never in my kitchen had anything been fried. When hubby and I got married I thought it was so cool that we got one of those little fry daddy things as a gift and those honeymoon pounds sure came on quick. Well this one time was purely experimental. There is this amazing couple at our church that has just blessed us beyond belief with produce from their garden. Well when I went over this Sunday to get some tomatoes, apples, and pears, she also gave me a bag of okra. I have only had okra fried and that was just on occasion, so I thought I would try to fry it. It actually wasnt too bad-I only had a few pieces. I also roasted some too with olive oil and salt and pepper but that wasnt quite as tasty of course. Oh to add to the southern cooking I also stewed some apples (made like a chunky homemade applesauce). So that concludes my southern living cooking for middle Georgia for today-now back to your regulary scheduled programming!!!

By the way-can you belive that ticker is at 20 days. I went to the dr. last Friday and they did a sonogram and they estimated the baby is already 7lbs 4 oz. Both of my other children were 7-12 and 7-13, so this one could definately pass them both up. I think I am ready. I am ready to get some consistent sleep-I will even take 2 hours at a time. My sleep at night for the past 3 weeks has been nil. I cant sleep laying down until around 3am so that means I lay sitting straight up which is nothing too exciting. I am thankful that I can sleep sitting up though-it's just not the dream sleep that I was hoping for these last weeks before baby comes, but as I have heard this is God's way of getting me used to those crazy nights. If that's all I have to do to gain a miracle of life then by golly I will be a restless sleeper in a heartbeat.

Baby Shower Pics!!

Thursday, August 7, 2008

I am blessed.....

As you know I am less than 4 weeks away from my due date of child number 3. There will be 5 years difference between number 2 and number 3. I got rid of every piece of baby equipment that I had for the first 2 kids and a dear friend, my hero gave me just about everything I needed for this baby. Well on Tuesday night my dear sister-in-law gave me a baby shower. It was so much fun. Let me first tell you that we switched churches this summer. Our old church was just great and we really loved the people there-but it was a 30 minute drive and it was the same drive that hubby takes everyday to go to work and with the new baby coming I really wanted to be a little closer to church so we could still be involved despite having a newborn to adjust to. So for about 2 months we have been going to this church that is less than 10 minutes (8 to be exact) and we have just been welcomed with open arms. We love the pastor and his family and everyone there has just been amazing. Ok so back to the baby shower-my sil decided to have the shower at our new church-so when she approached someone about using a room for the shower they took on the task of throwing a shower for me as if I had been one of their own for years. It was absolutely beautiful. I am still learning names so even as I was opening gifts, a dear lady that helped plan the shower was having to point people out to me-it felt kind of awkward but at the same time I was just truly humbled and blessed by their love and support. On top of this my mother and grandmother drove up for the event and that made it even more special. Also my mom's best friend from high school happened to be in the area for a wedding so she surprised me and came along too. It was a great time and I want to thank my s-i-l for making it possible. I AM TRULY BLESSED!!! (pics will be on here soon!)
