Happy Friday! Happy 4th of July! 

We are having a low key day here with my parents. It is so nice to have the holiday on a 3 day weekend so Scott can be home with us extra! 

I have my annual 4th of July Municipal Band concert tonight and as a result, I actually pulled out my piccolo to practice the Stars and Stripes part- so embarrassing! Michael asked me, "why do I keep playing the same song?" and "That's loud, please stop Mom!".  Sorry, bud!! I know that it makes people happy and so I try and do a good job and not mess it up too much! 

We've had a very rainy week and so we've been doing lots of snuggling inside watching movies. Michael is still such a snuggler and I love it although his spot on the couch is getting smaller and smaller these days. :o) 

In other news, I'm still trying to truck ahead on my school work for my semester leave. I headed up to school, prepared to stay all day until I realized no one else was there and I had no access to the copy machine. :o( I have soooo much stuff I need copied, just to make me feel prepared about leaving for a sub. Hopefully people will be back next week because I will be there again! I did force myself to stay and worked for about 3 hours getting organized and doing other things. I think things will be fine- it is hard for me to think about the whole big picture but in reality, the sub will take it one day at a time just like I do when I am teaching. 

And since these posts are also turning into my weekly baby updates....

We are 27 weeks this week and I had another good ultrasound (still going every two weeks). Baby A is on the left and Baby B is on the right. A is 2 lbs, 5 oz and B is 1 lb, 15 oz and they are still looking on track for good growth. They are sitting side by side in my tummy and it is usually party time in there- they think they can fool everyone by looking so sweet and innocent in their ultrasound photos. :o) I am still feeling really good although I am taking it pretty easy. I can only do a few errands at a time and shop at the small grocery store where they unload your groceries at the checkout and carry them out to the car for you. I've completely written off the mall or anywhere where I have to walk far to get to my destination! Usually I try and do a few things in the morning and then spend the afternoon resting. I know I am lucky to be able to have this summer off and to have help with Michael so I am trying to take advantage of it and not feel guilty- I know my most important job is to cook two healthy babies as long as I can! 

Have a great holiday and have a great three day weekend!

  1. If you go to work and can't get to the copier, call me! I have a key. Amanda
