I Can't Believe IT or Can I?

I have to say that I have been impressed with my 6 year old nephew lately. He came home everyday last week and told us he stayed on green and was good everyday. Needless to say I was very surprised, that is until I got a phone call from my sister this afternoon. Turns out Alex came home everyday and lied to us about how good he was being at school. The teacher sent out his conduct report today which told the truth. We were all fooled. :-) I don't know why he lied. Although he did tell me that he was afraid he would be grounded if his momma found out. Well he was right. Who am I to judge? I remember lying to my parents about things when I was younger. I'm not proud of it but I am just as guilty as he is. What makes children do this? No one has lied to him about anything that I know of. And I'm not sure that he knows what lying is? If he didn't, he does now! I guess I have a lot to learn! Maybe I can teach my children not to and just pray that they don't! Kinda makes me glad that I did not report on him sooner on my blog. I would have to print a retraction! HE HE!

A Gift For Baby

The above is a photo of a blessed gift that my 6 year old nephew Alex decided to hand down to our precious baby. I bought these "Muddy Boots" for my oldest nephew Dakota when he was probably 3 years old. My hubby Nick and I bought these because we were all the time taking him riding four wheelers and doing all kinds of things that required "Muddy Boots." So as Dakota got older and grew out of them along came Alex and so they were handed down to him. He thought they were the coolest thing he had ever seen. I really think the reason he liked them was because nobody had to tie them. He could just slide them on. Anyways when he found out that I was pregnant he decided he would hand them down to my baby. If you could have just seen him walk in the door with these little "Muddy Boots" in his hands and tell me he had bought the baby a present. Well--it touched my heart. It was the sweetest thing I have ever seen! I just love my nephews. I have so much love for these 2 boys as if they were my own. I can only imagine what I will feel for my own children.

What I Have Been Up To For A Month

Apparently I have become a little lazy, maybe crazy, now that I am pregnant. I just feel like there are not enough hours in the day to do all the things that I need to do. While I have been away from blog land I have done several things. I went on our Church's mission trip that we have taken for the last 2 years to Montgomery to teach VBS and do all kinds of other things. I just have to tell you that I had a blast while we were there. My little buddy that I always have a blast with was saved and that was the biggest blessing that I received while we were gone. I have to tell you that being outside in the 100 degree weather will reek havoc on a pregnant lady. I was so exhausted. I was very lucky that I only got sick one time but that's because I ate shrimp the night before and I don't believe that this child likes seafood.

Anyways, Nick and I have also started a class, Financial Peace University, at church by Dave Ramsey. I have to tell you that his method works if you stick to to because we did his budget last year and it worked well for us. I don't know why we stopped. Nick tells me that we are taking this class for me because apparently he doesn't think I handle money really well. I tell him that I have come a long way since we got married and he should be thankful that I save money now because I was a spender before we were married!!! Yippee!! Sometimes I think Dave Ramsey is crazy, but I enjoy going to class because of all the other couples that are in there!!

I also went back to the doctor for what I thought was going to be another ultrasound and come to find out, when we got there, they weren't going to do one. I was so disappointed that we did not find out what the sex of the baby was. Come to find out we just misunderstood the doctor at the last appointment. So I go back to the doctor on Sept. 6th and he won't do another ultrasound until I am at least 23 weeks. At my next appointment I will be 22 weeks! I'm on the verge of just not finding out what it is!!!

My promise is to start blogging regularly from now on! But don't shoot me if I don't!! HEHE! :-)
