I have been on strike this week...LOL. This has been my week to recover from Vacation Bible School. VBS went incredibly well. We ended up having 62 kids registered and about 30 volunteers. On the 24th (Sunday after VBS), a group of kids sang a few of the songs from VBS in church and I led the procession into church in my ringmaster costume. Why a ringmaster costume you ask...because our VBS theme was Davey and Goliath's Circus Spectacular. The majority of the people seemed to enjoy it but I'm sure my ringmaster costume in church ruffled the feathers of some of the old fuddy duddies.
I've done a little laundry and a whole lot of stitching (cross stitching and crocheting) this week. Other than that, I have done nothing.
My pregnancy is going great. I am 21 1/2 weeks right now and I truly can't believe it. Gabe is doing great. I would swear he is doing barrel rolls in there on a daily basis. I am starting to really get excited about this now:) I finally got brave enough to unpack all my maternity clothes about 6 days ago. I am still about 10+ punds below my starting weight so they still aren't a complete necessity but the maternity bottoms (shorts, skirts, etc) are a LOT more comfortable than my regular stuff now.

of my beautiful baby BOY!!! Yup, thats right, our new family theme song will be "My Three Sons". Gabriel Michael looks PERFECT. All the measurements average together to put him 1 day ahead of his gestational age. It was so cool. Our ultrasound tech is AWESOME. She pointed out all the body parts to me...and I do mean everything...the 4 chambered heart, the 3 vessel cord, 2 kidneys, lungs, tailbone...all of it. And, of course, as is typical for my kids, Gabriel had no qualms about showing us who he was.

LESS THAN 24 HOURS TO ULTRASOUND TIME...don't know whether to run and hide or be so excited I can't stand it. LOL

My kids are a bit ticked off that I won't let them come to the u/s but I can't get over that little niggling background fear and say "Yes, you two can come." Oh well, they can come if I have another u/s later on.
Vacation Bible School starts Monday and I will be out of town until Sunday night (niece's b-day party).

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.
