Summer 2009

Time for an update! I am almost 38 weeks along! Ready and waiting :) Here are few pictures.

The last picture you saw of me at 32 weeks:

Well, not too much has actually happened this summer. I’ve spent a lot of time getting ready for baby Nielsen’s arrival. We have a name in mind, but we’re still not sure 100% so you’ll have to wait to find out until he’s actually here. :) I've been busy getting my classroom ready for next year and writing out sub plans for when I'll be gone. I have also done a lot of scrapbooking, sewing, emergency preparedness stuff, organizing, playing around with new recipes, and a number of other things that have been needing to get taken care of throughout this past year (School kept me busy).

Kyle’s been busy with his new job. He will officially be on his swing shift (which they hired him for) next week, working from 3-12. Sort of a bummer for me since evenings are when everything happens, but I’m happy for Kyle. He has really enjoyed this new job. He loves the people he works with and is so grateful for the fact that it keeps him busy constantly (which makes for some fast days). Our ward here has been wonderful. There are a lot of fun couples that we’ve had the opportunity to hang out with and get to know.

The only downside to summer so far is that we haven’t been able to travel anywhere. Since I’m in my last trimester now, we’ve had to find fun around town. Thank goodness we’ve had so many others who’ve been sweet enough to come and visit us. My sister Chrissy and her crazy family came into the city from Vernal and I was able to get together with them after their long trip away in Virginia. We had Kyle's family Kristen and Seth make a stop on their way to Las Vegas. We got together with all of his brothers and sisters out this way which was a lot of fun! And my cousin Jessica is coming to stay as she picks up her family from Virginia (Tiffany and my Aunt) to go to good old Rexburg, Idaho. Tiffany will be starting BYU-Idaho this semester (sigh…. good times). There have been many others as well, but next month we’re hoping to see my Mom and Kyle’s parents too which I’m so excited for! So although we haven’t been lucky enough to take off ourselves, it’s been fun to see everyone!

Life is great; we're just waiting for the big day (at least I am). Hopefully my next post will have pictures of a particular sweet little baby boy!
