The girls and I are doing really good. Rie is a ball of fire, she's often found pitching a nightly tantrum in her car seat. Last night she did not want to leave the field, especially because Josie was riding in the pickup with Daddy. Marie was mad. I am second choice, it's okay, I'm alright with that.
Josie is going along like crazy, today at the pool she swam a good 10 feet face down underwater. She asked me if I saw her being a mermaid. Indeed I did.
Her gymnastics recital will be the beginning of August, the other moms and I watch them practice and there's a group wonder of if they'll be ready, if they'll know their routine. It would probably help if the girls would stop chatting long enough to do a front roll.
I am 36 weeks today, 4 more to go. We are starting to get really excited to meet this small person. I have decided that I would like very much to never be pregnant during wheat harvest again. I mean, it's not that I want to complain, but heaving my 9 month pregnant self up a 6 foot ladder into the combine is probably not the most graceful thing I've ever done. I like this being big in summer better than winter though, there are less clothes involved :)
Tonight, Reuben sandwiches with a side of strawberries, chex mix and some spice cake bars. Recipe listed for those delicious things below!
