my people are so clever.
yes we are expecting number five,
and that will conclude baby making for good.
timing... yeah, not so hot.
in fact it took an intense dream,
fatigue, nausea, and a spiritual day at the temple
to even realize i was pregnant.
almost eleven weeks along now,
and i believe it was better for me not to know
i was pregnant during the move,
that would have pushed me over the mommy edge.
so we killed our first mouse the other day.
we've seen a couple since we've been here,
and in single form i can handle them, but
i keep waiting to open a cupboard door and have
a whole colony of them frozen in place staring back at me.
this special house has a long ways to go
bless it's pea pickin' country heart.
every time "something" comes up in the house,
and by "something" i mean...
where to put the sheep and chicken issues...
chris just smiles and says,
"remember sara, this is what you wanted so bad,
a house in the country!"
oh yes, i know, but it sounded so more romantic
in my head before i was pregnant
and tired, and couldn't tolerate musty smells,
and killing little things, and
the salivating and lack of appetite.
...this too shall pass.
at least papa bear gets a riding lawnmower out of it.
to keep my mind off what i'm going to force myself to eat next i'll talk about what the kids have been up to lately. they had a really neat "night at the art museum". each class chose an artist and made their own art likeness after that artist.
landon did georgia o'keeffe
addy did vincent van gogh
he really loved his old preschool,
but he holds onto those good memories while he
embraces new ones in the bunny ears
that he can't stop wearing:)
miss pam and mrs. taft are both great teachers!
(yes, his pajamas are both too small and inside out)
our office space and computer are right below these sassy wooden spindles, and to remind me of his presence, tade will come and stick his cute chubby legs through and i get to grab them and play "gotcha" while i'm on the computer.
