i'm finally beginning to get a belly on me. i've had to start wearing maternity shirts because most of my regular shirts are getting too short! my regular pants are still working, but i have to rig the top button with a rubber band to give a little more room. i feel great, though. i'm having a good year at school and have lots of energy. we have a doctors appointment and ultrasound this wednesday and will hopefully find out if it's a girl or boy.

blake's mom and i spent the weekend following blake's band. friday night we went to toby keith's bar and grill in okc and then saturday we went to the elm street pub in tulsa. don't worry, though, toby keith's is smoke free and the gig in tulsa was outside... the baby's not getting any second hand smoke!

wednesday was our first day back to school with the kids. it was also blake's first day as assistant principal and transportation director with students there. none of the little kids were permanently lost...but several got on wrong busses and were "missing" for awhile. it was a very hectic day for blake...at one point i walked into his office and he had his office phone on one ear, his cell phone on the other, and the two-way radio in front of him. i never realized how much organization goes into bussing k-12 kids to and from school!

a year ago we began game nights with blake's family the first wednesday of every month. we have taken several months off, but started again this month with the party at our house. because of peyton and parker we really don't get around to playing games...we just eat and play with babies all evening.

over the 4th, i went with my mom, cherith and aunt debbie to clovis. i felt sick the whole weekend, but was strangely hungry the entire time. i felt like the weekend was focussed around keeping me fed with foods that sounded good. granny made some great food including her stew and chop suey. most of the weekend was spent playing games and of course eating! it was great to see granny and her new house. hopefully blake can go next time.
