Getting a Routine

So life is still busy busy, but it's becoming every other day which is much more manageable.

I've stepped down from being I's Assistant Den Leader. I'm still super involved but without taking more time away from family/church time.

I'm Volunteering at I's school store and reading to the class and the Library; but it's spaced out enough with other parents, that it's not that bad at all.

Today 'I' had his Boosterthon at his school, to raise money for the school. They've been hyping the kids up all week and they were super excited. We donated per lap and the kids were expected to do 25-35 laps. The parents were invited to come cheer which was a lot of fun. Sorry that I don't have any pics or anything :( my phone isn't entirely fixed yet...But it was great. They gave the kids enough time that I  think everyone got 35 laps. 'I' did really well. He did all his laps with plenty of time to spare. Unfortunately he got knocked over twice and each time he scraped a knee. The second time he got really upset, but luckily it was after he was done running.

S is out of town for Drill this weekend, I won't see him till Sunday :( It will be nice to have a bunch of one-on-one time with 'I', but I'm really going to miss him...and I always having trouble sleeping without him :( We have a Scout activity this Saturday and it would be nice to go as a family.... But oh well, it's not the end of the world and I am super proud of my hubby!

My life is so blessed! Thank you for sharing in it with me and being a part of those blessing.

Baby #2 ?

     I know in the scheme of things, four months isn't very long at all. That there are plenty of people out there who try for years to conceive with no success. But it's so hard to not get my hopes up whenever my tummy feels the slightest bit weird. Or convincing myself that "yeah, you're feeling nauseous, but you're not getting sick so it doesn't mean anything" and still getting nervous about going on those amusement park rides that say "no pregnant women". I know it's all in my head. I do my best not to think about it, but there's that period of time every month that I just can't help it. And it seems that the months that I am able to distract myself, 'S' is certain "this is the month". I love that my husband wants to have a baby as much as I do! I don't know how people do it. Dealing with the disappointment every month. It's only been a couple of months and I still have several years....
    Everyone was so certain that we would get pregnant right away.....
    Whatever Heavenly Father has in store for us is perfect. I already have one wonderful son and a loving husband, I'm happy. ......And I'll keep my fingers crossed.....
