Insert Witty Title Here (preferably something about a parade, a museum, and lack of cool weather)

Before I share our weekend, I thought I'd answer a few questions that several people asked a couple of days ago:

How far along are you? I'm only two months

How are you feeling? So far no sickness, just that 1st trimester tired feeling. I never got sick when I was pregnant with Kate so I'm hoping it will be the same with this pregnancy.

Will you being doing monthly tummy pics? I haven't thought about it until ya'll asked. Maybe. Probably. We'll see...

Kate is really excited and shows everyone her Big Sister necklace. Although on the way to church on Sunday she told me with an excited tone that I was going to be a big brother! She still hasn't quite figured it all out.




On Saturday we went to a parade in our town. Kate and cousin Kennedy had a great time. They loved the firetruck and Ronald McDonald. And their blue suckers...









It hasn't felt like Fall around here yet. It's been super hot and pretty much just plain miserable. I'm over summer weather and I'm definitely over summer clothes. Oh how I wish it would cool off around here!

Schools were closed today for my county which meant no work for me. And since it was too hot for the outdoors, we chose an indoor activity and went to the Hands-On Children's Museum. Now, originally I thought about the words 'hands-on' as a great idea, Kate would love it! Then the more I thought about it, hands-on isn't just hands-on for Kate, it's hands-on for every kid in north Florida and south Georgia. Not quite as appealing, yet we put on a germ ignorant mindset and had so much fun. But like I told my friend Kasey, although we had a blast, we still went through a couple bottles of hand sanitizer when we got into the car.


There was so much to do there and Kate loved it all. Some of her favorites were the mini-grocery store, the firetruck, and the veterinary office.













I would have LOVED this mini-grocery store when I was a kid. I used to ask for a real cash register every Christmas. I wanted to work at Winn-Dixie and loved watching the girl ring up all of the groceries and type the numbers into her register, especially if she had long fake fingernails and a noisy jingling bracelet. That made it look extra fun.

But today, who loved the play cash register more than anyone?


This girl right here:




Sal Gal even volunteered to ring up other kids' groceries.



The Kids TV station was really neat. The children could sit at the table and see themselves on the TV as if they were broadcasting the news.



See us up there on that little TV?


And this is what happens when you leave Sal Gal alone with the camera.

I'm almost positive she thoroughly enjoyed herself today.












Listening to my cheek













Brazil Update:
I've spoken with M to the Izz-A several times since he's left. He sounded happy and I could sense the excitement in his voice. I sent him over there with our old digital camera (because you know Mama ain't sending her new one!) and he says he's taken lots of pictures.
Other happenings: Their van broke down the other day and they had to push it somewhere and then walk 3 miles or so to their destination. He had to give his testimony to a packed house last night also. I'm so proud of him and what he's doing....but I miss him badly!! I just keep thinking that at the end of this week he'll be home! I actually miss seeing his little hair shavings around the bathroom sink! I must be going crazy.

I loved playing with a cash register when I was little. I got a PlaySkool or Little Tykes one when I was little. It even came with a little buggy and groceries. I thought it was the greatest thing ever! I was always fascinated with girls with long fingernails too.

Oh my gracious, I would have LOVED that when I was a kid. I also had a fascination with the grocery store as a child. I actually got a cash register. Not a real one but it was a my size thing. It had a safe and everything! & A name tag that said "Jamie Lynn".

I didn't want to ring up though, as much as I wanted to be the bag lady.

Aren't those museums the greatest?! We haven't taken Beck yet, but a pass is on our Christmas list for this year.

Excited to hear all about the pregnancy...it adds a whole new dimension to the blog!
