Life is always a rich and steady time when you are waiting for something to happen or to hatch. ~E.B. White, Charlotte's Web, Chapter XXII: A Warm Wind

Once again I have put off blogging.  I wanted to put up pics from the summer and whatnot--but so much has been going on and didn't know what to blog about first.

We have had a great summer. The kids have been spoiled to the point that getting back to reality has been difficult.  So much is changing so fast and being pregnant it really can be emotional. 

When we got back to Wyoming I changed jobs and it has been great.  I am still surprised at how fast I chose to work for New Therapeutic Solutions.  But am so happy there.  We are growing in good ways and I don't have to worry about any of it!  I enjoy working at the clinic and working with the docs again.

I have to admit that I have baby brain.  We have the room pretty much ready.  Isaac still thinks its pretty cool.  He is curious about the baby and happy about it (as long as he doesn't have to share a birthday).  Zoey on the other hand still does not like the baby and tells me so.  She won't cuddle me anymore until after I have the baby.  I still don't really have any ideas or feelings as to if it is a boy or girl--which is really making me curious to have the baby and find out.  I really thought that naming this baby would be easier than naming the first two, but I was wrong.  We have tossed around a few names, but nothing has been set in stone as we can't really agree on what we want.  The baby is very healthy and still measuring big.  The date has been set for November 1st.  Zoey waited for her date and this baby will too.  So no surprises that way, even though Chris is still very nervous that the baby will want to make an early arrival.  Exactly 9 weeks and 2 days to go:)

It seems that it is good that I will have a baby to keep me busy as my other two are convinced that they are big and I am already missing how little they once were.  Today was the first day of school.  Zoey just doesn't feel like a second grader to me!!  I did not get to escort them to or from school today--not even on the first day of school to make sure everything went well.  They kept telling me they would be fine and that they could do it by themselves.  They rode their bikes and I was so happy that no one got lost or hit by a car.  My kids think I am crazy since we only live a few blocks from school.  They had a great day and were so excited to tell me about their day.  Once they got home we packed up and went to soccer.  First soccer games of the season.  They didn't play at the same time tonight which was nice (5:30 and 6:30 games).  Isaac played great! He was all over that ball and scored!  He played so hard.  Zoey also played hard and was super fun to watch.  Her team did not score, but Zoey was the only one to bring the ball up the field and shoot (she did it at least 3 times)  but she shot at the goalie each time and was blocked.  But she did great.  Good thing I put a roast in the crock pot before going to work today, cuz it was a big and long day.  Not to mention hot.  It was in the upper 90's.  Chris didn't do well in the heat and Zoey was very specific about wearing her new clothes to school today which included jeans and new tennis shoes.  The heat has really slowed me down as well.  I suppose it always has, but now I am like--stopped.
