Attempting to to use the app again...let's see how this goes, shall we?
We have several projects going on right now. I still need to unpack our suit cases from our trip to NC. Fill Owen's dresser and remove the shelves currently holding his clothes. Some things need to be hung. Arranging our patio (seriously that's a project). And the biggest project is assembling our swing set.
It's pretty old but in good condition. We are painting it with this Rust-Oleum Restore hoping that the cold winters here will not wear out the set. So far it seems like our efforts will be worth it, but it's a slow process.
I had planned to start school next week with the kids, but various things might not make that possible. We will start by the 4th of August at the latest. I was going to only have 5 weeks of school until we were going to start traveling to AK, but since orders were canceled I have a little bit of flexibility.
I'm really trying to remain busy. Next week is the board, and I hopeful things will go our way, but I'm not very optimistic that it will. I have no reason to be pessimistic other than trying to protect myself from disappointment. Our family is currently saying the Sacred Heart Novena for his selection. The kids are grasping simple concepts of a nine day novena which is pretty cool. Amelia holds this picture of "The Secret Heart of Jesus" for everyone to see as we pray. It's sacred not a secret, Amelia...get it together ;) Their absorption is making me a little hopeful for the school year.

My friend Ashley just wrote a review on some materials at Holy Learning. There is a 15% off code, too. They have some neat material for teaching kids the faith. I'm starting my list now. I have no experience yet with the product, but I think it will be to have whether you are homeschooling or not. It's worth a look. Promise.
Thanks for voting on my little poll. Last I checked it was almost 50/50 with Becket in the lead by a vote or two. I got to see the babe today, unexpectedly. He has some big ol' cheeks, y'all! The 20 week ultrasound his face always looked like a skull. But clear as day were his chubby cheeks. Can't wait to see him and compare him to our other 3 monsters. I have to go back in 2 weeks to review my blood sugar. I'm so grateful they are letting me skip the terrible 3 hour glucose test. I almost vomited and or pass out last time. No bueno.
29 weeks today (or yesterday I guess). I was going to do a belly shot but I recently posted a 28 weeks shot on Instagram. It just seems too soon. Maybe 30 weeks people. If I remember.
