A Day Out

The girls and I went out today. My two older girls went to art class. My toddler stayed with me. The girls take an art class through our local school district's home education program during the school year. And, the art school offers summer extension classes, a month at a time during the summer. My girls love their art class so we signed up through today.

My little girl and I went and did some shopping while the girls were in class. I bought my middle girl her birthday present, returned some library books, and stocked up on gluten free food for my middle daughter (I won't want to go out for that soon). Then, I picked up the older girls and we went to the grocery. I was hot and exhausted when we got home. I'm trying to prepare like crazy, because I have a week and a half before my C-Section.

When we got home, I asked my older daughter to bring in some groceries. My middle daughter ran to the back of the van and started digging (trying to figure out what bag of groceries she wanted to bring in I suppose). She found her gift. Oh, well, what do you do?

Here is a picture I will share with you of me, now, at 37 1/2 weeks pregnant, in the final countdown days. I can't wait for our little boy to arrive. Boy, will it be strange. :)

Hi Cathy,
Thank you for stopping by my blog. I have not been posting much the last week or so, but as soon as our semi-annual trip to town is over (only a few days each) and we're back home next week, I'll get to blogging again.
I love your new blog! Along with not posting much, I've also not visited other blogs very often lately. Congratulations on your son! How exciting for you. I have boys, but I just finished knitting some things for a friend who just had a baby girl. That was so much fun to finally have a reason to make some pretty little girl things. I'm sure you're having fun finally getting to do little boy things. :)
God bless,
Jenny at The Last Frontier
