"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Hey y'all...sorry I haven't posted in a few days.

I have been so swamped with Vacation Bible School stuff that it isn't even funny. I have probably put at least 15 hours into it this week. You know you are in trouble when you start dreaming about it. The good thing is that I have ALL but one volunteer lined up.

The kiddos have been in Tae Kwon Do day camp all week and have hada fabulous time. Every day I have gone to pick them up, Master Donna has had a funny story to tell about one of them. She also told me how polite and well behaved my boys are. I told her I was glad the lesson we were teaching were sinking in after all since they didn't use there manners at home...she just laughed.

I'm down at my parents' house right now. They are taking my boys, my nieces, and my siter up to Norfolk for the 4th of July. I was invited too bu t I have too much left to do for VBS. Hehehe...at least thats my story and I'm stitcking to it. They will take off tomorrow morning and I'll head on home. I don't have to be back until Thursday afternoon. Woohoo...thats 4 completely kid free days. The kiddos are going to the Aquarium, the zoo, driving go-carts, and going to fireworks at the military base up there. I don't think they'll even have a chance to miss us.

And, thank you so much for the prayers for Pam. They were obviously heard and answered. When she had her ultrasound on Wednesday, they saw the baby and the heartbeat!!! The best guess is that she ovulated a bit late and the swimmers were still hanging around.

As for me and my pregnancy, I have decided that the little shit is going to be just as contrary as both the big brothers. The only time I am consistently feeling movement is when I lay down to go to sleep at night. Only two and a half weeks until my ultrasound and then we'll hopefully know whether its a boy or a girl.

Sounds like a couple of days of nice relief! Kid-free for 4 days, heck I'm trying to pawn mine off for a few days this week...care to take on a few? :-)

So glad and relieved for Pam!!! Thanks for sharing the good news, I was wondering...

So you are what, around 18 weeks now? Will be checking in for the update on the ultrasound!

Enjoy the free time!

4 days without the kids sounds wonderful, and like you say they won't get a chance to miss you!

It looks like you've deserved a break, you're amazing working so hard when you must be feeling pretty washed out.

How are things going? Hope you're not getting migranes anymore (touch wood!).

Can't wait for news on the ultrasound, you must be so excited.
