Upward Soccer

Ella started Upward Soccer this year at a local church. It is so much fun to see her out there. I have worked for Upward for 2 1/2 years and now to see my girl playing in a league is awesome. It's so much fun to watch these 4-5 yr olds run around without a clue and kicking it in the wrong direction. But they don't care and we don't either. They just have fun and enjoy playing.

Today is a was Ella's first day of "Big Kid's School". She started half day K4 classes at the Elementary school. She has been asking for weeks if the school was open yet. She was ready to go. She didn't even cry when I had to wake her up this morning...we'll see how long that lasts! Stephen and I walked her to school and met her teacher Miss Vaughn. Ella just walked in like she owned the place and made herself at home. When it was time to leave Ella gave us kisses and waved goodbye then showed other children coming in where they were suppose to put their stuff. She loves to tell people what to do, I have no idea where she gets that from hmmmmm??? I held it together but I have to admit, it was really hard when we left her class and walked down the hall to realize that my baby is not my baby anymore. She is a little girl growing into her own. It won't be long before she is teaching Stephen and I new things and we won't be able to spell words we don't want her to know when we are talking. Yes, time is marching on and she is just so ready to tackle the world. I pray God's protection on her as she makes her journey.

6 Weeks to go!!!

I can't believe that it's only 6 weeks until my c-section. I think we are just about ready. I have bought most of what we need, just need to get stocked up on diapers etc but other than the little things we are ready. I don't know about being ready for the sleepless nights again but it will be worth it. It took us 13 months to get pregnant and now the time is just about here!!

Ella started Upward soccer on Tuesday. She had a good time. It's a joy to see the 4-5 yr olds run around. They have no clue which end to go to, or to stop when it goes out of the lines. Just a lot of fun to run after a ball, that's what it should be all about anyway. I am looking forward to seeing her in her uniform for her first game on the 23rd.

As well as starting soccer, Ella will start her first day of K4 or "big kids school" next Tuesday. Stephen and I will take her there and meet her teacher. We got a sweet letter in the mail from her teach and am looking forward to having Ella in her class. Doesn't seem possible that she is old enough for school though. She will go from 7:30 - 10:30 and a bus will take her to her day care she goes to. I am glad she gets to go 1/2 day this year, it will make the transition to full day school next year easier. She keeps asking if school is open yet, so she is looking forward to it. We will go and buy her school supplies this week, I think I might get teary eyed buying her back pack and other items!!!

50 Days and counting

Well I only have 50 days until my c-section. I still can't believe it. I went to the Dr. today and my BP is starting to climb and I am in the beginning stages of water retention. Woo Hoo! Lucky me! He mentioned that at the very least we have to make it to 36 weeks...that's only 4 weeks away YIKES! I still have a lot of things to buy to be ready. The baby's room is pretty much done but I need to do an overhaul of our bedroom, move the bedroom around and really dust and mop behind the furniture and in those nooks that never seem to get cleaned really well. Oh and I have yet to pack a hospital bag.....I have more to do than I thought!
