Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

What an Interesting Week This Has Been

This has been a very different week for me. It has not been bad just a little busy and sometimes not really feeling focused.

At the beginning of the week we got news that my husbands Grandma had ovarian cancer and it was pretty bad. After sitting down with the children and telling them this we all prayed and waited to here the news of the surgery. The next day we were told that the Doctor whowas going to remove the cancer had run some tests and they had all come back negative. Praise the Lord.

Then I saw the midwife this week and it was a great appointment. We have decided to let the 11 year old and 9 year old be at the birth. This wonderful midwife spent about 30 minutes telling them different things that will be going on and each appointment she is going to go over more with them. At the birth she said she would explain everything that is going on. It has been a different pregnancy this time my older ones seem to be very involved. My 11 year old walks up to me a lot and holds my belly and says,"Mom I can't wait to meet my new brother or sister." It has been fun to see the children this excited about a new sibling.

Then as the week went on we have had storm after atorm. We have been here for 3 summers now and I have never heard the tornado sirens go off. The last two nights they have gone off and we have been in the basement. But we have been safe and have had no damage so I guess I can handle the sirens and the basement if the outcome stays the same.

Now Hubby and I are off for the weekend. We are going to a homeschool conference which I love. I haven't been to one in 5 years and I really need a boost. This will do it and the best part is hubby and I get some time alone.

Have a great weekend.

Hope you have a great time at the conference. We haven't been to one in 3 years either. Actually, I choose not to at present, though indeed it's a GREAT way to be refreshed in your journey.

Sounds like the girls are going to be a wonderful part of the birth experience. And I'm praising God with you regarding dh's grandmother. THANK YOU, LORD!

What homeschool conference did you go to? My husband and I went to the Indianapolis one for the last four years, but we didn't go this year because we've been doing it so long, we didn't feel we needed to. But I always loved it...such a fun time with your husband. I'm sure you had a wonderful time!
