Update: We are having ONE baby BOY

Ok, so it appears that the ultrasound two weeks ago was not conclusive. Today we heard, "you are having a boy". I am more sure today that they are correct (you wouldn't think you could call it a boy by accident). We'll be sure to pick out two names by February!

Busy buying green and yellow things for the baby,

Where have I been?

Well, I just read the Ray's blog, and I was reminded that I hadn't posted in a long time again. I think that's my problem. I don't post for a week or two, so when I do I have LOTS to say- hence the enormous posts! I actually was purposely waiting this time around because I was hoping that John would post for a change. He's been so excited about the baby, but then doesn't post- silly! OK, so enough with the blabber- on with the updates!

  • School's been mostly good. Being in 5th grade this year has been quite the adjustment! It seems that EVERYTHING is different! There have been some things that I love, and other things I really miss about Middle School, so I'm keeping an open mind about the whole experience.
  • We get to have another ultrasound tomorrow (yeah!). Maureen, our friend from church, did the last one for us, and the baby was a little too young, so she said we should come back. It was incredible to SEE the baby! She said if she had to guess it was a girl. Hopefully we'll find out even more convincingly tomorrow.
  • My favorite excuse for not having homework done so far happened last week. It went like this. Me: "Why don't you have your homework done?" Student: "Well, I don't really know why, but I've been worrying about my Birthday." Me: "Uh... Really? So, when is your Birthday?" Student: "September 17th." Me: "That's next week. Is there any reason you should be worried?" Student: "No. I don't know why I am." Me: "Hmmm... I'd suggest you worry less about your birthday, and more about getting your job done." OK- seriously?! Worried about your Birthday?! That's definitely a first. I had a hard time keeping a straight face on that one! Imagine when the kid turns 30! Ha!
  • Blazer, our lovely cat, was naughty today! I bought a fresh loaf of bread last night at the grocery store and left it on the counter. When I got home tonight I found that he had ripped into the bag and loaf, and eaten several pieces. There were little bits of bread all over the counter, and one big piece on the floor! That darn cat! What cat eats bread?! You'd think we never feed him or something. Oh, well. We love him.

We are having ONE baby GIRL

If you have read on Ron & Ebby Ray's blog that we are having twins, we just want to make sure that you know that at the last ultrasound it was confirmed that there is ONE baby GIRL inside of Sarah. Ebby, sorry, no twins this time! Perhaps if we can figure out how to scan a picture and post it, we will do that later this week. Sarah is scheduled for another ultrasound on Thursday.

Hooray for Saturday!

OK, so I brought up the last post I made, and HOLY COW! I write the world's longest posts! Ooops! I guess I just have a lot of details to get out. What's funny to me is I know as I was typing I was leaving some things out so it wouldn't get too long! HA!

Today is Saturday, and I got to sleep in! Yes! After this week that kicked my butt, I really needed some extra sleep. I have to say that after Monday at my new school, every day did get progressively better. Tuesday was perhaps a slight digression in some areas, but that's another story (that I won't tell or this post will be ENORMOUS!). By Friday I was feeling pretty good, and now I am only debating whether or not I should stop back into my classroom over the weekend. I'm mostly ready and could make things work, but maybe I want to be SUPER ready! :)

Well, that's all. I know. It's shocking. This is short. :) More later...
