"It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that."

Last week I received a call from the library letting us know that Rascal's name had been picked from the Summer Reading Program drawing, and that he had won a Barnes & Noble gift card! You know, when the children all turned in their drawing slips it did go through my mind that we might have a slight advantage with five of their names getting entered. ;) Yet another benefit to living in a small town and having a "big" family!

Math is going GREAT this year! Talking to Dr. Cotter, the author of Right Start, at the conference last May really helped me understand the program a little better and now I too (my children already did) LOVE the program.

I finally got back in to see my midwife yesterday! (It had been 7 weeks, since my last appt. I had one scheduled for a couple weeks ago, but it had to be canceled since it ended up being at the same time as hubby's diagnostic procedure -- his biopsy's came back negative by the way!!! Thanks for all the prayers!) The appointment went great and I was very happy to hear that even though I've had some contractions each night, at this point I don't need to worry about bedrest. My midwife said "Your just being YOU!" (I tend to contract daily from here on out, but only a few times has that progressed into actual pre-term labor.)
Oh, and I had a new nurse check me in. She asked "So, is this your first or second?" I just said,"ummmmmm...." (with a smile!) She said "your THIRD!!!!!" I laughed... "NOT your FOURTH!!!" Nope, my ummmm, sixth. (Then I went on to explain that this is actually my eighth pregnancy, and that I have two little ones in heaven.) I wish I had a picture of her face! ;)
