Still here

No baby yet. As of last Thursday, I was dilated to 2 cm and 70% effaced. So I'm getting close, but who knows, it could still be awhile. The ultrasound says the due date is 10/16, but calendar-wise it's more like 10/10. Time will tell!

I'm utterly exhausted most of the time now, but that's normal for the end of pregnancy, at least for me. We have also been SO busy lately-- I only had ONE full day at home last week, which is highly unusual around here. And this week is shaping up to be busy too.

Today Anna had school and I had lunch duty. It was actually a lot of fun to see who Anna sits with, and to chat with the kids I know there (half the kids from our church actually, which is funny since the school is a full half-hour from our church.) Yosef, Biniam and Kaitlyn had a blast too eating lunch in the gym and playing with all the kids.

In other news, Biniam was attacked today by a swarm of bees and stung multiple times. Yikes. He's fine, thankfully, and is apparently not allergic to bee stings.

Dinner's in the oven, and it will feel really good to get those kiddies tucked in later and put my feet up and relax. With ice cream of course! :)

Thanks for the update! Poor Biniam! How stressful.

Hi! I just found your blog by following a few others and links to families who have adopted from Africa. We're in the process of adopting a little girl from Rwanda and are absolutely thrilled about it! I've been reading back over your blog for the last few minutes and it seems you have a sweet family! Thanks for giving me a peek. :)

Congratulations on your new blessing on the way!

God bless,

YIPPEE! It won't be long now and your sweet little one will be in your arms.

Poor Biniam!

Try and get a little rest!

Poor Biniam. That is truly horrific. How is he holding up. I can't imagine having multiple bee stings, one is bad enough!
