Craig and Shea's wedding

The wedding was wonderful! We had such a nice day. Shea was beautiful and Craig was so happy!!! (sorry the pictures are different sizes. I'm to tired to fix them!!)

Well, now my "summer" (if you can actually call it that) has now begun! I am finished with AMSTI. The days were long but I did learn some new ideas for my classroom. The summer is going to be so short because I am going to Texas next week and then the beach. I will need to start getting my classroom reading after the first of July. They just get shorter and shorter every year. This year will be crazy! We have a new reading series, and a new science and math curriculum with AMSTI. Not to mention, we're having a baby!!!

By the way, my sister-in-law's mother did the pencil test on me today and she predicted that the baby is a boy!!!

Next Weekend

Well, next weekend is the big wedding. My little baby brother is getting married. In my mind, my brother should still be sitting in the dirt in the backyard playing with his hotwheels. It's hard for me to imagine him being old enough to get married. He is marrying the most precious person, Shea Jones. Shea and I have lots in common because we both teach kindergarten, however; she teaches at Weeden. They have been engaged for a year and a half so we have been dying for the wedding to get here. He proposed to her in her classroom. He played a recorded tape over the intercom at the school telling Shea how much he loved her and right after the tape was finished, he walked into her classroom with the ring. Shea's twin sister was hiding in the closet (Shea had no idea!) and filmed the whole thing. She was so suprised. Craig had worked out to get her a sub for the rest of the day and he had a limo waiting outside the school. Isn't that sweet. This week will be fun! I am getting a mani and a pedi (love a reason to get that done!) and I have a hair appointment the day of the wedding. I usually do my own hair so I am a little worried. I just don't want prom hair or curly tendrils hanging down.... I am skipping AMSTI on Friday because it's the bridemaids luncheon so I only have FOUR more days!!!

Chad left this morning for New Orleans. Lilly has a national sales meeting for a new indication for Cymbalta. He won't be home until late Thursday night. I miss him so much when he is gone. I don't sleep very well and the animals always act weird. I do hope that he is safe driving and I hope he gets to eat some good food. I am always jealous of the dinners they have on these trips!!!

Ok, it has been brought to my attention today that I have fallen off of the blogging bandwagon! Everything with the pregnancy is going great. We are no longer "high risk"! We saw Dr. Allen two weeks ago and our next appointment is June 16. I don't know what to do with myself not having to go to the doctor. I have been going to the doctor on average every three days for two years so it seems strange not to be going.

I have been feeling pretty good, just so tired. I know most of you can relate. I still don't have an appetite back. I force myself to eat and after dinner is usually when I feel sick. But I still smile when I feel sick because it is all worth it. I think that I am still in shock that we are pregnant. I lived in fear for two years that I would never get to experience the joy of a child growing inside me. I must remind myself daily that it's really true.

Chad has been wonderful. Most days after work I just veg out on the couch. He has picked up the cooking most nights. He's been washing clothes and doing the chores so I can rest. What a man!!!

We just booked a beach trip in June. We figured that we should take a trip for just the two of us one last time before the baby gets here. We booked a condo in Destin for four nights the end of June. We are going back in July to Panama City with his family. They go every year and we look forward to it so we can visit some old friends.

A side note!!!! I agree with Amy and it's wonderful to be out of school for the summer!!! However, we do have AMSTI training for the next two weeks so summer really begins June 13!
