The Verdict is In!

Well, we had our first ultrasound yesterday and saw our baby. The doctor had a difficult time getting a good view of the baby's genitals until i rolled over and then it was clear, BOY #4 is on the way. Seth and I are going to start our very own basketball team. Now we'll have to spend the next few month's coming up with boy names we like. The last two have been very difficult for us, so wish us luck.

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

an·tic·i·pa·tion [an-tis-uh-pey-shuhn]
1. realization in advance; foretaste.
2. expectation or hope.
3. previous notion; slight previous impression.
4. intuition, foreknowledge, or prescience.

It is my personal belief that anticipation is a wonderful and kind of tricky thing. I have been anxiously awaiting my ultrasound date to find out whether I'm having a boy or girl. At this week's appointment, my doctor told me we were going to wait another 4 weeks. Well, I just can't take waiting that much longer when I know full well that they can tell for certain right now. So I've made an appointment for this Saturday, but now that is seeming forever away. Why couldn't I be going right now? The things we must do to accommodate work schedules. Anyway, now I am anticipating for Saturday in a most agonizing way. If only I could know today.

Whew! What a month!

I know it has been forever since I updated our blog but I have been gone virtually all month long. In the past month, I have spent more nights in a tent than in my home.

Seth and I drove to Oregon for Shane's wedding on June 11th and we had a great time. NO kids! It was a great break and only possibly because of my Mom's willingness to give up her vacation time to come watch our boys. I was home for one week and then it was up the coast with my boys for a week long camping trip in Fort Bragg. We had a great time. It was a wee bit stressful but mostly fun. I'll post pictures soon. I'm so far behind on downloading my photos. Home one more week but running around crazy mad to get everything ready for my week with my Young Women at Girls Camp. Off to camp I went and had an amazing time preparing my devotionals and learning the lessons that are so important for young women to learn. It was super hot and everyone was really dirty. I met some wonderful girls and women and made relationships that will last forever. I have a huge testimony of the Girls Camp, not to mention, the Young Women program. I remember the wonderful times as a youth I had and I hope that my YW had the same kind of experiences that I remember having. Pictures to come soon.

Needless to say, I am looking forward to a much more relaxed schedule this coming month, we are basically getting ready for school which starts on August 13th.
