Feeling better...

I haven't been around for a while because I have been pretty sick with this pregnancy. I think I spoke too soon in my last post. Anyway, after a few rough weeks, I am feeling better. I am still nauseous most of the time, but it is back to the "tolerable" level. I will be 12 weeks this Tuesday so we are happy about getting out of that first trimester. We went to the doctor two weeks ago and did an ultrasound. We saw the baby very clearly and it was moving it's little arms up and down. It also had a strong heartbeat which we both heard and saw. How exciting to know that the baby is okay and safe and snug inside my belly!! (Which is getting thicker and thicker...)

Charlie is beginning Kindergarten next week. I can't believe my little man is 5 years old and going to "big school!" We have school supplies all ready and we go to meet his teacher on Thursday. And Madeline starts Preschool September 4. She will be at Charlie's old school, and will be going on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I am still teaching dance there and I am overjoyed to actually be teaching my own daughter dance!! Who would have thought?? Then on Wednesdays she will have piano like Charlie did. We go to Parent night this Tuesday, and a Play Day next Tuedsay for her.

Please continue to pray for our friend Debbie. She received a not-so-good report this week and now has to undergo radiation therapy every day for the next 5 weeks. This along with her chemo every other week. She is such a godly woman and firmly believes she is in God's hands. It is so easy for those of us who love her to be discouraged by the progression of her cancer, all the while she is contunually encouraged. She is truly an inspiration for all who come in contact with her. She is such an important part of our lives and we are blessed to be a part of hers.
