88 more days?!!

week 27 cauliflower size
So, my pregnancy ticker over there says 88 days left before our due date. That's not very long, is it? Now, I think of the long, hot days of summer that lie ahead of me. My three {precious!} children, who have no tolerance of my lack of energy and general slowness these days, are wanting to be on the go. Every day. Yikes. That seems like a long summer, but then I think in 88 days {or likely less} our new little will arrive. And that is both exciting and a little terrifying. Four. Children. Wow. But I'm claiming this promise for the summer and for adding our new baby to our home: "Be strong. Take courage. Don't be intimidated... because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He's right there with you. He won't let you down; he won't leave you." {Deuteronomy 31:6} What would I do without Him?

Oh, and the other day I had my first "Oh, you are about to pop any day aren't you?" comment. I'm so happy to play the part of sidewalk entertainment for passersby. Nice.

Wow! Can't wait to see our new little baby and what he/she looks like! Seems like forever to you, I'm sure! In my perspective---I can't believe I'll be back in school when he/she is born! Now, that's really perspective---what happened to those 3 months of summer teachers have! HA! Meme
