Calvin has been obsessed with the FEMA trailer since we moved back, so you can bet he was fascinated and saddened by it leaving our front yard.
The whole process took under two hours. I have a feeling it would have taken much longer on a nice summer day. Hint: these workers are not from around here. Also, around 200 cigarettes were smoked in the process.
And off it goes...
So here's the latest in Natalie's life...
She started a new school schedule after the Christmas break. She has always attended the morning session five days a week at Jefferson, but since she will be doing full days next year in kindergarten, we decided to let her try out the afternoons. So far, it has gone really well. My main concern has always been that mornings are her best time...she's more alert and happy during that time. I should never assume anything with Natalie...she is really enjoying her afternoon school time, so it is a huge relief knowing that it may not be such a huge transition for her in the fall.
Right now, we're enjoying our mornings and sleeping in until nearly 9:00 every day, instead of the usual 7:30 school schedule. The mornings are lazy, then she heads off to school at noon. I'm a spoiled mama!
Tonight, Uncle Tim stopped over to do a little music therapy with Natalie. If there's one thing in this world Natalie loves (other than us), it's music. We're so happy that he can share his talent with us when he gets the chance. He plays guitar for her...
Then lets her strum the strings...
She LOVES it!
Of course, so does her brother.
He's always willing to join in singing "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star."
Meanwhile, Calvin is a busy, busy, busy boy. He's growing up way to fast for my liking. I can't believe how old he seems lately. I love the conversations we have...he's such a smart, funny little guy and I cherish the one on one time we have at this age. He's so loving and caring and will be an awesome big brother. I can't wait to bring this little one home from the hospital!
On the cold days, we're mostly stuck at home, and Calvin loves to play the Disney Junior online games. I enjoy watching him learn!
I am currently 29 weeks pregnant, and that means I have ten weeks to go before we meet this new baby. I'll have a C-section a week before the actual due date of March 31st.
I absolutely love being pregnant. I can feel myself slowing down a bit at this point, but it doesn't really bother me. The baby is very busy and reminds me a lot of Calvin in how he moves and where he likes to position himself in the womb. I've already surpassed where I was when Natalie was born, which is hard to believe! There is still so much growing to be done.
Perry is on the road nearly every day this month and next month reffing basketball, his favorite pastime. He's starting to do a lot more college work, which is fun for him, but also means he has a lot more traveling to do. This year, he got into the Northern Sun conference, which is NCAA Division II. Many of those teams are in South Dakota and Minnesota, so there will be some long nights for him. He's willing to do it though, with the hopes of someday moving up even higher! Anything is possible for him...he's the most talented guy I know and I admire his ambition.
So, that's the latest. I have many more fun blog entries planned for this month, as I have many fun projects going on before this baby arrives. I'll share them with you soon! Stay tuned....
