Still here! Sorry I’ve been quiet this past week!
I’ll confess, I’ve been treading water a bit as the cold virus turned into bronchitis. In case you’ve ever wondered, violent coughing attacks are NOT fun at 9 months pregnant.
I’ve always had my babies several weeks prior to the due date, though and have been in prayer that this little one will wait a few more days while I recuperate.
Despite the fact that I’ve been at half mast, we’ve managed to have some fun! One recent highlight for the eldest two girls was a presentation on India at the homeschool co-op. My friend Ruby, who grew in Southern India, presented a great talk, and provided authentic Indian garb for all the little ladies to model. The girls had a grand time being Indian princesses, and we all learned bunches! Unfortunately, I only managed to snap a couple of pictures, and they weren’t particularly good shots. (Perhaps because I hid in the back, trying not to breathe near anyone.)
We’ve had a few gorgeous days that have afforded the opportunity for the children to romp outside. Keegan sure loves dirt!
We’ve also tried to catch up on a few of the craft projects that I am constantly neglecting.
Things are pretty much ready to welcome our little one. The bassinet is set up beside our bed, baby clothes are washed, diapers are ready. We still need to take the other children shopping to each buy a present for the baby, but that could even be done after the wee sibling makes his or her appearance.
