Okay, so here's the latest from our summer:
We took 2 mini vacations to the hill country lakes. The 1st one, over Memorial Day weekend, to Lake Buchanan. We stayed in a cabin with the Poehlmann family and had LOTS of fun playing in the lake, grilling, and fishing. The 2nd one was over 4th of July weekend. We went to Inks Lake, just our family, and had a BLAST jet skiing!
Jenn has just finished her summer school session, and is now "off" until the fall semester begins on Aug. 29th. Hopefully teaching college pregnant goes as smoothly as teaching 5th grade did.
Brad has been working like crazy to keep our lawn GREEN during this drought. Not to mention working HARD at work, after a co-worker was put in the hospital. No rest for the weary...
Brooke is taking on the role of two-year-old with ease! She can be so sassy, and definitely likes things her way--but at the end of the day, she is still our sweet girl, who loves her Mommy and Daddy very much. She is talking up a storm, and doing lots more independently. She can put on her own shoes, undress completely, open bedroom doors, climb up and down the stairs, brush her hair, rinse the shampoo out of it, and get her own snack from the fridge (with permission or not)! She is going to be a GREAT big sister!
Baby #2 is still growing bigger and stronger each day. Our next appointment will be on July 28th, just as the 2nd trimester begins! We have big plans for moving Brooke out of the nursery, by the end of August, to make room for Baby. Please keep our baby in your prayers, as he/she grows, and we get closer and closer to the big arrival. Some time in early September, we will be able to find out if this baby is a boy or a girl...
Hugs to all,
