What a week!

So much has happened this past week! And it has all been fantastic!

1. School is OUT! WHOO HOO! Not that I don't like my job, but there is a time and place to be very excited about our wonderfully long summer and the time and place is NOW! It was fantastic! The kids left on Thursday, we left on Friday...and we don't have to be back there until August. (sigh) that is so great!

2. Memorial Day weekend: all my cousins, well, most of them, and aunts and uncles came to visit us! We have a very involved family and so it's always fun to see them and catch up. We went to the zoo, the Ranger game, church, and of course...we ate a lot. Loved it! (pictures to come...)

3. Church: Voddie Baucham preached. I've been hearing Voddie speak for a long time now. He's been at Super Summers, Hot Hearts, camps, etc., and every time I hear him I feel like he absolutley loves Jesus. He always brings up really fascinating scriptures from the Bible and explains them in a way that is quite possibly over the heads of half the audience. But, I really do like him, and it was really good for all of my family to hear it. :)

4. The pregnancy: Nothing new to report. Today I am at 9 weeks and 4 days! It's so crazy that I'm entering in the 3rd month! I did cave on the Friday of when school got out and had a teeny tiny cup of diet coke. I was kind of feeling bad about it but then I was smiling from ear to ear because a lady came in that was already showing and she had a big ole glass of diet coke to drink! So, I don't feel bad about it at all!

They kept studying the 'ole diet soda issue, and are showing that one a day is fine. Heck one glass of wine is okay, as well (not that I would know, or anything). :)

So, throw that guilt out the window! All in moderation ...

OH - I have a great book I've wanted to recommend. I actually haven't been able to get my hands on one yet, but have read several excerpts from it. It's all about natural childbirth (which freaks out a lot of women), but what I think you'll enjoy is that it is full of stories ... lots and lots of positive birth stories. You don't get enough of that when you're pregnant, and it really is very empowering and encouraging. I've been reading reviews by women who are having medicated births, but feel much more confident about labor and delivery now that they've read it.

You're doing what you were made to do, and you're going to do it fabulously! Isn't that cool?

It's "Ina May's Guide to Childbirth". She's the queen of birthing babies! And she's on Amazon - even better! ha! Ya' know ... just a little light summer reading! ha! ha!
