Ellie had to try out the swimming goggles.
Clearly, they weren’t as great as expected.
She took a nose dive on concrete last week.
Tomorrow I see an ob for the first time for this pregnancy. At this point, I plan a hospital birth instead of a home birth. Strange to give up a dream, but I am pretty confident it’s what I want. Weird moment, though. I’ve been tired but less nauseous lately. I’m two weeks away from second trimester. It’s gone slow and fast all are the same time. There’s been some very long moments, anyway. I’ve been feeling baby move for a week or two now. That feeling never gets old. (Okay, when baby is nearing birth and trying to break my ribs to get a bit more room it’s somewhat unpleasant but, for now, I’m loving it.)
Typically I’d start school again tomorrow, the first full week in July. I cannot bring myself to do it. Thinking I’ll aim for August instead… Ugh. Five students and two littles has me intimidated.
I’m lacking creativity. My seam ripper got more hours of a workout than my sewing machine during my last project. Writing has lost its funny. Any minute now I can wake up from this fog and get back into the swing of things. In the meantime, I just keep on doing the next thing and my kids are getting really good at pitching in more than normal. Not ideal, but we’re surviving.

Hang in there. The beginning is sooo hard but it’ll pass. That’s wonderful you’re feeling the baby. I have lost babies too and there is just nothing like knowing the little one on the inside is jumping around. I always say, I’m rejoicing in my misery since it’s so hard to be sick and drag through each day. Don’t worry about school. You’ll get there when you’re feeling better. Sounds like your kids are doing a great job. Keep up the good work. It’s worth it in the end! 🙂

Contrete is rough on a tender body. I hate to see one fall on it. Our great granddaughter fell last year and this year on it. I keep telling her not to run. Kids just have to run I reckon.
Hope you are feeling less foggy soon. Thank the LORD for your older ones that can help.
Hope you get a good report from the OBGYN.

Hang in there!
I’ve been needing to start school again but I can’t bring myself to do it. Maybe I’ll get it together by…October. 😉
