Still here

Nothing really new or exciting to post. I just want to keep you all a little updated, and show something new every once in a while so my faithful readers will continue reading. 🙂 We’re still going back and forth every week. It’s tiring living out of a suitcase, but we love our families so much! We’re going to Ohio this weekend. Help us pray that it will be a profitable trip. It would be good to come back with a job under Jamin’s belt and a house in mind.

Okay, this is going to be weird and a little gross. Do any of you suffer from warts? I got one on the bottom of my foot in January, yes January. It grew to be pretty big and over the spring, spread into about 10! It was so sore. I couldn’t walk on my bare foot unless I walked on the side of my foot. I tried everything. I did a 12-week Dr. Scholl’s treatment, and several home remedies. But I want you to know I have found the cure! Someone told me to try putting nail polish on them every night and covering them with a band-aid. So I did (except I used duct tape instead of a band-aid). I noticed last week that I could walk flat on my foot. Yea! I know this is not as exciting for you as it was for me. But then last night, I tried to get some of the yucky seeds out of them, and about five of them came out, I mean the whole entire wart! yea! (and yuck.) Anyway, I am on the road to recovery.

And now you KNOW I have nothing to post! Thank for reading about the exciting events in my life.

A week with Ryder…

Ryder spent last week with us in VA. We had a lot of fun…except for the fact that he gets up early! I’m kind of used to getting up whenever I want to. 🙂 So I had to make some adjustments. We really had fun. His favorite part was being around Jada!

We didn’t take quite as many pictures, as you can see. But we had a great time! I’m looking forward to going back to my lazy life this week!

Fun in the Sun

Last week, I decided to go swimming at my aunt’s pool. I’m dying to lay on my stomach (do you hear me, moms?). So, my sister brought me the only float left at WalMart. It was one of those cheap, skinny ones, and it had a hole to top it all. I had a hard time staying on it…oh well. But she brought her boys and we had a fun day!

The Ultrasound

We just had the ultrasound, and she *thinks* that it’s a girl. But even though I drank Mt. Dew, the baby was not moving at all. We are going back in 3 more weeks to do a follow up, then we’ll know for sure if it’s a girl.

We’re moving…

Last week, the Lord gave us a definite direction to take. As you know, we’ve been kind of “floating” since the middle of April. But as of last night, it’s official; we’re moving to Ohio to work with the Reagans. We are SO excited to work in a ministry again and be a part of a church. I also love the idea of having our own place to live again. We have wonderful parents and are so thankful that they have let us live with them for so long. We have enjoyed being so close to them for these past few months…but I miss my couch, my pretty tablecloths, my mirror, you know? 🙂 Anyway, it’s such a great feeling to have a definite answer to all these prayers. We are looking at trying to move sometime around October. Several things have to fall into place. Please continue to pray that the Lord will provide a good job for Jamin, a place for us to live, and a new doctor for the baby. 🙂

Well, off to the ultrasound in a few hours!

I figured it out!

I’ve made two drafts – one for a boy and one for a girl. Tomorrow my brother is going to post one for me after we find out. I’m so nice, going to all that trouble just so some of you can find out right away. This is probably the week that no one will check my blog anyway. 🙂

Drive through Bristol

On the way back to TN this past Saturday, Jamin wanted to take a drive through Bristol. He and his family lived there when he was little. He wanted to show me the camp their church owned, and the South Holston Dam. It was HOT, but in the car with a/c, it doesn’t really matter. 🙂 Here are pictures we took at the dam.

And there you have it!

Tomorrow’s the big day! The ultrasound! We have wanted a girl all along, but I’m starting to want a boy (don’t tell anyone). Plus, everyone in my family seems to want us to have a boy. And I saw some adorable airplane nursery decor at WalMart the other day. But I’ve seen some pretty precious little dresses too… stay tuned. I’m trying to think of a way to post without a computer. 🙂 If I can’t work it out, make sure you come back on the weekend to find out. Also, please pray that everything is okay and that there are no problems with the baby. We are so excited!

Nothing exciting to post

I’m just going to do a quick catch-up here on every subject I can think of.

We spent last week in Va, and we’re going again tomorrow. Last week, we actually found out that our car insurance had been canceled. We were a bit late on a payment, but they won’t reinstate. They were going to cancel anyway, because they finally realized we weren’t in MI anymore. Oh well. We’re going to change it tomorrow, along with our registration and drivers’ licenses. Not fun. It’s such a hassle to get things switched over.

I’m feeling the baby move a lot more now. It’s been several times a day the last few days. I don’t have to lay still and poke my stomach anymore. 🙂 We go next Tuesday (8/14) for the big ultrasound, but I won’t be able to post until the weekend…the suspense of it all! I’m officially out of my regular clothes (except for a few stretchy things). My maternity clothes are still mostly too big, but at least they’re comfy, and cute. 🙂 I keep meaning to take pictures, I know some of you want to see my chubby tummy. They’re coming…

After all our floating around, I think we’ve finally reached a decision about our future and where the Lord would have us, and when. But a few things have to be finalized and discussed, lots of plans have to be made…so stay tuned. We ask you to keep us in your prayers as we make this decision.

I have a hard time keeping my attention on a post when there are no pictures, so I’ll stick in a few. 🙂 Braden was with us last week, and we had a great time. His favorite thing was taking pictures with my camera (with the strap around his neck, and no running). I won’t put up the pictures he took. He somehow thought he needed pictures of all the license plates on our cars, and the giant rug he was playing cars on. But he loved it. 🙂 We went to a tractor pull Friday night. And he loved taking pictures of the tractors more than he liked the tractor pull itself. Funny boy!

We played water balloons one day…it was a blast!

Wow! That turned into a long post, but since I only have about one a week these days, I guess you can handle it! Tune in again next weekend!
