I can tell that at 6 months pregnant, I am definitely starting to feel tired and "very" pregnant. It's been over 100 degrees every day for several weeks now, which feels even hotter to me. If I don't take a nap I am ready to fall over by the early evening. Other than that, this pregnancy has really been pretty easy. My husband and I are both convinced that it is another girl but we won't know until the birth. There are so few surprises left in life, and this definitely is a very nice surprise.
Later this week, I will be going kayaking on a nearby river with a friend from church. Really, going anywhere without any kids is great, but this is definitely going to be VERY fun. I have not been kayaking since I was pregnant with Solomon so naturally I am very excited.
My husband is flying out to Arkansas early on Friday for work. This is the third year in a row that he won't be home for 4th of July, which is too bad but I am not complaining. It takes a lot of hard work to support a family of almost 7 on a single income these days.
I have finished buying all the kids curriculum, and am half-way done with the lesson plans. The thought of how I am going to manage with 3 kids in K4, 1st, and 3rd grade, while also caring for a toddler and adding a new baby, is a little daunting. Last year's books filled one shelf of the bookshelf in the school room. This year, they fill two shelves because Isaac is going into 1st grade and I am adding books for John. I would have never guessed how much time and effort it takes to home school. It's like teaching three classes at the same time, while having to run a household.
So really nothing new or too exciting going on here, which is exactly what I was hoping for our summer break.
