Good Day!

We had absolutely beautiful weather today! The high was 74-which set a record! When I picked the kids up from school, I let them play on the playground for an hour, and they came home tired and filthy! After showers, we set down to homework. We had a delicious dinner of corned beef, mashed potatoes and sauerkraut (OK, not cabbage, but close, and I am the only one who eats it anyway!). We had the leftover cupcakes for dessert (I have to say that Drew's class said they were the best treat EVER-I am so glad the kindergartners enjoyed them!)

The best part of my day was earlier that afternoon. I had my latest pre-natal check-up. I am 14 weeks on Thursday (and officially in my second trimester-Thank you, Jesus!). All is going well thus far. I lost a pound since last month. I only bring this up because it has NEVER happened in any of my pregnancies! The best part? Hearing my baby's sweet heartbeat for the first time! Last month, it was too early to hear it, although I did see it, but there is something very reassuring about hearing that sound! God is so good!

Your blog caught my eye b/c I taught in public schools for 6 years and now have been home for 3 years. I miss teaching, but I babysit and get a lot of my energy doing things with them! I also work for ETS which helps me keep up with all that is new in teaching world! I am excited to follow someone who is similar in passion for teaching and being home! And congrats on the baby to be. We are working on that as well!! :)
