This blog has been neglected due to the fact that I’m massively pregnant. I have seven more weeks to go. Charles and John were both winter babies; this is my first summer baby, and things aren’t very pretty to say the least. I’ve been extra sensitive to heat, and my legs are quite swollen by the end of the day. As much as I don’t look forward to the absolutely sleepless nights, I am eager to have our third boy exit the womb (when he’s full-term, of course.)
We’ve been spending a lot of time away from the house, which has been exhausting, but necessary, and sadly, I haven’t been documenting our adventures very well. I am putting forth a bare bones effort right now: 1) grow a baby, and 2) keep the other two happy and fed. You won’t find me doing much else. Our house is a disaster; meals are a sad affair; I haven’t pulled a single weed all summer; and a couple of people aren’t getting their daily baths anymore (I won’t name names). Needless to say, the boys are thriving. On the homeschool front, they are always learning, and I try to incorporate a few lessons here and there. We’ve been attending a weekly science workshop for preschoolers at the city library in Salt Lake, and lots and lots of time is spent outdoors. Our co-op is in summer mode, meaning we have park days, but no classes, so we still meet up with friends at least once or twice a week. I have also started doing lessons from this wonderful little book I picked up at a homeschool conference I attended in May. The boys enjoy it, and the activities are easy to prepare.
Charles is so excited for baby brother to get here; John is a little more apprehensive, I believe. They often incorporate a pregnancy storyline in their play, and they love to hug my belly.
