Summer Already?

The last couple of weeks have been such a whirlwind. I can't believe one week of summer has already passed! The last week of school was so bitter sweet. I really didn't think I would get too emotional, but as the last day grew nearer I just couldn't imagine having a different class next year. The last day was really hard, there were lots of tears shed that day. But I got showered with some amazing gifts (who knew teachers had it so good!).


The weekend before school got out I went to Abilene for one of my college roommate's, Macy's, bachelorette/lingerie shower. It was really good catching up with some old friends that I haven't seen in such a long time. Macy gets married the end of this month and I can't wait to see her wedding! I'm sure it will be SO cute. Her mom is a florist and she has such cute, trendy ideas.




Last weekend my little sister Maddie graduated from Cooper (those of you who read the paper might have noticed her on the front page of the paper last Sunday!). I really can't believe she is already graduated and ready to head off to college. She will be attending WT in the fall and she can't wait to get out of town.






The past weekend we went to Ruidoso with some of my school friends and their husbands. The girls left early Friday morning and shopped all afternoon and the boys met us up there later that night. We ate at some really good places, went to the horse races and played lots of Skip Bo. It was such a fun weekend!






And finally, while all of these great things have been going on, I am so excited to FINALLY announce our exciting news....WE'RE PREGNANT!!!! We couldn't be more happy. I met with Dr. Atkinson (a fetal monitoring specialist) and he said that everything looks great so I feel like I can finally breath a sigh of relief. I am 11 weeks 4 days, but the baby is already measuring 12 weeks 3 days. And my due date is December 22nd...yay for a Christmas baby!! Friday will be my last appointment with Dr. Phy, which we are so sad about but it's such a blessing at the same time because it means that I have actually made it to the 12 week point. And we scheduled an appointment this morning with Dr. Atkinson for the "Big" ultrasound. As long as the baby is cooperating we should find out the sex on July 5th!

I still tear up every time I think about you being pregnant. Our God is SUCH a faithful God! What a blessing!

I am still not sure if it is a boy or a girl. I need to wait and hear what your gut tells you and then go against it! :)

I am glad you have had such a fun couple of weeks. I can't wait to hit the pool.
