The Countdown is On!

78 days until Adrian is supposed to be here! I think I will be counting the days until I can get my body back to (somewhat) normal!

Tonight is parent teacher conferences...I am not looking forward to it! I always have this fear that a parent is going to be upset with. Inevitably, at least one is every year, but the thought of it coming is not something I enjoy.

After the rest of the conferences in the morning I have a doctor's appointment (the one where you have to drink the orange stuff) and then family Christmas pictures!!! I am really excited because Joe and I haven't had a picture taken together in a long time and this is the last Christmas that it will be just the two of us.

Lord, thanks for a good day. Give me energy to last until 6:30. Keep those I love safe and help me to do the best I can with my students. Amen.

Shower Number 2

Shower number two was this past Sunday, October 26. It was fantastic! More people came than I thought would. I think I have enough diapers now to last for a couple of months. And, I don't need to buy any bath or bedtime stuff for awhile! It's great. The room is also starting to come along as I get decorations and other gifts to get it all set up. Pictures and more details to follow on the baby blog...

My Aching Back

So third trimester is turning out to be different from first, but still kinda miserable. My back has never hurt so bad in all my life.

Adrian is getting so big now and he kicks all the time! Maybe he is kicking me in the back or something. He's big enough now that people keep telling me they don't think I am going to make it until January. Even my own mother said that! I honestly don't think I am as big as people are making me out to be. I measured my own stomach and it was 31 cm...I am 27 weeks along. Considering how short I am, I didn't think it was that big of a difference. Plus, I am carrying a boy who sits right in the middle of my body, he doesn't spread himself out at all. I guess really only God knows what's going to happen.

Lord, thanks for the rain, but help it to move along quickly. Be with Lauren as she goes through her morning sickness and help her to feel better quickly. Love on everyone I love and reveal yourself to those who don't know you! Thanks for the blessing of a baby and a pretty good week (so far!). Amen

Foster Homecoming 2008

Last night was the big homecoming game. For the first time, the cheerleaders had a lot planned for it. We introduced and escorted all the 8th grade boys onto the field, had a banner for them to run through, and did a cute half time performance. It was great. I really love my cheerleaders. It will be so sad to see my 8th graders move on next year.

Exactly one week from today is my very first baby shower...and I am so excited! Joe says it will probably just be diapers plus refreshments, but that saves us so much money in the long run.

I also go to the doctor today, so be looking for updates on my baby blog...many happy thoughts to you today!

Lord, thanks so much for this day that you have created. Help me to have a positive attitude towards all that I come in contact with. Let your love shine through me and be a testimony of who you are. Bless and be with all whom I love. Amen
