Some news…

It’s so crazy that we are into the 3rd weekend of June already!   And it’s been a busy month so far because school stuff is wrapping up and there are parties and field trips and thank-you cards and gifts to get ready.  We have a Mom’s in Prayer Group at our school and we put a Strawberry Social on for the teachers a few weeks ago which was really well received.

Our family also spent a rainy weekend at the cottage and spent the entire time in warm clothes and drank hot chocolate and played games.   It was sunny for the drive home though of course.

I caught a few pics of the girls that weekend…

And one of Erik.  And that is pretty much the extent of pictures taken in June.  And that means I haven’t taken any of William this month other than ones where his back is to me.   Nice going mom!

Partly to blame for the no pictures is the fact that I charged the battery for my camera after this trip to the cottage, but then lost the battery after I unplugged the charger and laid it on the counter in the laundry room where it then got knocked off.  I looked everywhere in that laundry room for the battery and prayed to find it,  but only did after I was prompted to look in the garbage can.  And voila!  There is was and is now restored and I hope that doesn’t ever happen again.

And party to blame is the fact that I’m tired.  Because I’m pregnant.   Again.  With number 5.  I’m going to have 5 children.  This has not sunk in.

I’m almost 14 weeks and I think I felt the baby kick the other day and I’ve heard the heartbeat so I do it’s all real and that there is actually a baby in there.  But it still doesn’t seem real.

Probably because in our minds we were done,  I had given away all my baby clothes and was in process of giving away the rest of the baby things.   I told everyone we were done,  but God obviously had different plans for us and so I know it’s meant to be.

I’ve always believed that there is nothing as exciting or magical in life as having a baby and so as  soon as I hold that baby and I fall completely and utterly in love,  I know it  will all make sense.

Even though that doesn’t help right now with the crankiness and then tiredness, but I only have 26 more weeks to go and that’s going to fly by (hahahahahah)

So that’s our news.   Hopefully news like that is as exciting as it gets for a long long time!
