It is crazy that today is July 1st! Any other summer, this would mean that I had about a month and a half left of summertime bliss before the craziness and excitement of *Back-to-School* greatness.... however, this is a different summer.
For my husband and I, the fact that today is July 1st means that our first child, a sweet boy, is expected to arrive in one month! In November of last year, Aug. 2nd seemed to far away!
Regardless, we are thrilled, nervous, and overjoyed all at the same time.
I'm linking up with Farley, in her Currently Party, though "Currently" our lives are preparing for a whole new kind of craziness and excitement...
Tuesdays and Thursdays, by husband works from home. Though he started this a while back, this is the first summer that he has been home with me. I have been enjoying these days. Although he is studying and preparing for his upcoming sermon (he's a pastor), I enjoy having him home and the occasional tea break he has with me. Because he is home, I have not had the TV on as much... which is a great thing. Therefore, as I listen to him type, I am also listening to the birds sing their summertime songs.
Being 4 weeks (or less) away from delivering, this little boy is doing some squirming as he is running out of room. :) Though the days to come may be filled with exhaustion and business, I take joy in the squirming that he does. It's something that he and I share, together.
There is so much to do within the short amount of time that I have left. I'm going to need to write a serious TO DO list and make a plan... pronto.
I can't help it, I love the beach. There is nothing better than a chair, sand, water, book, and Gatorade, you know... the yellow kind :) This year, we won't be making a beach trip, but next year will come and this family of 3, will be going to the beach and it will be oh-so exciting!
I must finish maternity plans for my sub. I have to admit, I am having a hard time with the "be anxious for nothing" scripture right now. Knowing that I will not be at school for the first 6 weeks makes me super nervous, but it will be ok. It has to, right?
My parents and nephew will be camping the week. My sister, husband, and I will be going to spend the day with them on the 4th. This means there will be lots of laughing going on... which makes my heart with excitement, already! :)
Happy 4th, Friends!
