Been awhile

Well, it has been a while since I have blogged, but in my defense, it is because I felt like this.

It has been a pretty busy couple of weeks for our family between the move and the pregnancy. Also, I spent all weekend at the Opryland Hotel chaperoning a youth trip with our church. 

In baby news - I have been put on complete pelvic rest.  I have something called "placenta previa" which is when the placenta is covering the "exit" - so to speak.  Because of this I can't lift anything heavier than a gallon and milk and I have to be really careful.  This means that I can't lift weights anymore - which is a pretty big bummer for me.  I am still walking, but it just isn't the same.  Also, I am probably going to have to have a c-section to avoid the risk of hemorrhage. There is a chance that it can still move, but I am not going to get my hopes up. 

We have gotten through our home inspection (pretty easy) and the home inspection for our new home (doesn't look too bad), so we are one stop closer to finishing this process. I guess I will start boxing thing up this weekend. 

Finn's basketball pictures came in this week.  I love this picture!

We also had Spring pictures at school last week.  Finn was so excited when he realized that he got to wear "normal" clothes.  However, he got really upset when he realize that he couldn't wear his basketball gear.  Finn hates wearing jeans. 

This week we learned that Finn placed the highest in the Kindergarten class for reading skills.  We were very proud of him.  As a prize we let him download Minecraft on his tablet.

This morning was "Wacky Wednesday" for Sam.  Even though you can't tell from the picture, Sam is wearing my leg warmers.

I have posted a few pictures from the HCA website.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…


Today Finn and Sam put on their new Upward  uniforms. Sam took one look at Finn and said “Finn, do you want to be twin basketball brothers?”  Even though Sam said it with as much sincerity and excitement me had in his little body, Finn respectfully declined.
Instead they danced like ladies and gentlemen danced in days of yore. They looked hilariously awkward.
