Well, hello there! Let me first say, that all is right in the world! My husband is back from camp (I can hear him singing in the other room) and I am sooooo glad! I really am quite pathetic when he is gone!
Chris just finished a run-down of how camp went and I am so thankful for the way God worked in our student's lives. Then, I hopped on Facebook a second ago, and almost my whole newsfeed was full of our students talking about how the Lord changed them this last week...it really blessed my heart! I am praying that the seeds that were planted will take root and grow and that our students would grow passionately in their love and devotion to the Lord!
So, for the last week while Chris has been gone, I was blessed with the best house guests, my parents for the first few days and my awesome friend Kim for the last couple days! They made sure the week went by fairly quickly by hanging out with me! My mom packed alot of our bedroom up so that when we move next month not too much of that will have to be done. I am hoping I can convince her to come again in July to pack up a few other areas since I can't lift anything! I have decided my Dad completely takes after my grandpa who passed away this spring. My grandpa was known for making sure everyone had everything they needed...seeing my Dad run to the store for this or that reminded me of him! I can't tell you the random things my sweet Dad brought home from the grocery store just "in case" I needed them! Anyway, life is back to normal, and I am so thankful I had my parents and Kim to keep me company this last weekend! Thanks y'all!
This afternoon I had my weekly doctors appointment, and everything is still looking good. My cervix has shifted to the left a little, but my doctor didn't seem too concerned, so I won't be either! As of tomorrow I will have completed four weeks on bedrest...craziness! Honestly, it has gone faster than I imagined it would. The fourth week completed marks the 25% mark...only twelve more to go! If it wasn't for all the sweet visitors, phone calls, meals, and emails, I know it would have been much more difficult! I am so thankful for our friends and family who have literally showered us with love.
And because it wouldn't be right to not post a few pictures...here is my increasingly large belly at 23.5 weeks. I definitely feel like I "popped" out! There is no denying I am pregnant :)
