12 weeks

18 02 2009

Wow it is hard to believe we are 12 weeks along. We are almost in the 2 tri…and I am doing great. I feel so much better than I have with past preg. I only lost 1 lb. and the heart rate was in the 160’s. They had a really hard time trying to find it, the baby is really deep near my back….so it looks like lots of back labor I am sure. This is excally how Grace was so maybe another little girl.

Please pray that we continue to do well and the baby continues to grow. We need a name for this little one….because we don’t find out until the delivery we like to have a name for it…so we don’t have to call it “it”.
Isaac was munchkin
Grace was peanut
Owen was Boo
So if you have a name idea….please pass it on to us! Thanks.

School Room

16 02 2009

Now I know you don’t have to have a school room to Homeschool.  After 4 months of schooling at our kitchen table we were moved out of the state for my husband work.  We sold our home and decided to rent our next home.

The home we are in now is over double our last home.  We not only have a family room but a living room as well on the first floor.  After thinking about what to do with this “extra room” we now had we decided to make a school room.  We were unsure of our decision at first.  Will we regret using this extra room for school?  Would we rather have a “fancy room” or a “Formal Dining room”.

Now that we have had the room for over a month I don’t know how I did school without it!  I love that I can set out the school stuff the night before and not have to worry about ceral being spilt on it.  The kids can start a project before dinner and not have to move it from the table for us to eat.  They feel like they are “going” to school.  I just LOVE my school room.   I took some pics to show you how it looks.

This is our school wall.  It has a magnet board for the Leap Frog toys.  Also, it hold all the markers, crayons etc.

This is our new school table from Ikea.  I love that it is all wood and it fits adult chairs.  The kids can grow into them and we can use it for extra seating when company is over for dinner.

This is where we house all our books.  Expecially because we are doing Sonlight we have lots of books.  These are in easy reach and I love that.

Wow!  5 years ago to the day…..Wednesday Feb. 11, 2004 I was getting ready for bed and I knew that the baby was going to be coming soon.  Dave went off to work the midnight shift at UPS and I went to try to get some sleep.  I awoke a few hours later on Feb. 12 around 3 am and called my husband home.  We were 45 mins. from the hospital and it was starting to snow.  He came right home and took a quick shower and got me in the car.  We arrived at the hospital a little after 4 :30 am.  They decided to keep me…and off to a room I went.

We called our family in the morning to tell them we wre checked in and they started to make their way to the hospital.  Hours laters……I mean hours…..at about 7:30 pm I decided that I couldn’t handle it anymore and got an epidural.  By the time they got there and did it our baby was coming.  I started to push a little after 8:40 pm and a sunny side up little boy was born at 8:46 pm.  The room was shouting….Dave was calling to the waiting area….”It’s a BOY”.  We were so thrilled with this wonderful life God had given to us.  Then only 10 hours later my sister had a baby boy next door to us.  Neither one of us knew what we were having..

Now that boy is going to be 5.  What happened to those past years?  He is reading pretty well, rides a 2 wheeler bike, can skateboard and is one of the most compassionate loving children I know.  He wants to serve the Lord and live for God.  We couldn’t be more proud of him.

My sister and I delivered our boys 10 hours apart.  We were next door to eachother, it was a fun experience.
