I'm still here. Just don't have anything to say, I guess. We've been busy, too, getting stuff ready for the fall. Lots of things going on in the fall. Our girl starts kindergarten, our boy starts preschool, and of course baby boy is arriving. I know once the kids start school, our schedules will be a lot tighter, so I'm cramming in the activities now. We have piano, dance, soccer, and various arts and crafts classes.

We're also supposed to go on a few day trips like to the Fair, Legoland, or camping but I don't know if we can survive those places in this heat.

This past weekend, we went to my cousin's wedding. It was an outdoor wedding. All you single people out there: never plan an outdoor wedding for July. It was so scorching. The bride was pretty smart in her strapless gown but my cousin suffered (deservedly so) in his thick suit. It was great to see all the family, especially my seemingly long lost cousins. And because my cousin went to the same college as me, I also got to meet up with long lost college friends. Funny how people have changed and then not changed.

I'll try to post some pictures from the wedding. I haven't quite figured out how to download photos from the camera. Meanwhile, we're still here, just hiding out in our air conditioned home.

It's a Boy!

Most people are pretty happy that we're having a boy. Our parents think it's good that our son will have a boy playmate. They worry about him sometimes when he's copying his sister and smearing on makeup or wearing high heels. My sister is the only doubtful one. She asked,"Can you handle another boy?" She has a point; he is so much more rambunctious and rebellious than the others. Still, we are glad to have another boy. Kevin would have been happy either way, and I just find it amazing that we're actually having one at all. We are very blessed. Now if we could only come up with a decent name...

Speaking of boys, I don't know if I can handle a lifetime of boy injuries. Our boy had a major spill yesterday at the park. He fell off a ledge and pretty much landed on his face. Both knees were bleeding, and his face was a mess. He has scrapes on his forehead, chin, and one cheek; a bruise on the other cheek; and a big swollen eye. His sister could not bear to look at him. Luckily, he seems to be okay with his injuries. It just looks horrible. Today he's better and being his usual monkey self. I just hope that's the worst that ever happens to him.
