It's starting to feel a little more like summer time.  We have actually been blessed with some nice weather the last few days, not too hot yet.  Dane has 13 more school days left in kindergarten.  So hard to believe.  And we are soooo close to being a family of 4.  My due date is in 5 weeks.  I have a strong feeling that I won't make it that long.  I had some blood work done on Wednesday that I am awaiting results for that will determine if this baby will have to be induced earlier or not.  Nothing about this pregnancy has been easy, so I can't expect the last few weeks to be either. 

I am looking forward to having all of us home this summer.  This will be the first summer since the summer before my junior year in HIGH SCHOOL that I won't be working and have a reason to set my alarm clock.  I've always had a job, most that weren't too hard during high school and college, but they were jobs none the less.  This summer I will have a little bitty thing that will serve as an alarm clock.  :)
I'm looking forward to us getting to adjust to being a family of 4 without the distractions of work and school.  Hoping that it will be a fun and painless process!

We had a nice weekend.  Friday night was a lazy night that involved lounging around watching movies.  Saturday morning Kevin had to go to the college that he works for a seminar.  Dane and I had a lazy morning until Kevin got home and it was time for his baseball game.  The weather was perfect, and the boys had fun and did well. After his game we went to Willies to eat an appetizer and enjoy being outside while Dane played with the kids.  Then we came home and sat outside while we listened to music and Dane "swam" in our blow up pool.  We had a great evening, and really took advantage of  the nice weather.  

Today after church we went to Dane's kindergarten pool party for his Sunday school class.  Dane has had the sweetest teachers for the past 3 years now.  Mr Ozzy and Mrs Kristen started teaching them when the kids were all 3 years old, and loved this class so much.  Every year there is a promotion Sunday where the kids get moved up to another class, and in most classes they get new teachers but Mr Ozzy and Mrs Kristen have moved up with the class to continue teaching them the last 3 years.  The kids just love them, and they really have been such a blessing to our kids. There is about 25 kids on a normal Sunday in their class, and they serve every single Sunday the first hour and teach these kids all about Jesus.  They have the biggest hearts, and so much patience to deal with this wild group.  But, sadly they have decided to take a break from teaching Sunday school for a little bit, so next Sunday is their last Sunday to be the kindergarten teachers. And then June 1st, the kids get promoted to the first grade class, and will have new teachers. Very sad for us parents.  They hosted a graduation pool party at their house today, and to say the kids had a blast would be a total understatement.  Dane loved every minute of the party, and was really bummed when it was time to go.  

Sunday evenings are always a little depressing.  The weekend is coming to an end.  It's back to school and work for the boys tomorrow.  I have lots to do to get ready for this baby this coming week.
