Old news...

After surviving the first few weeks back to school, I realized I had run out of excuses and needed to post again. Lots has happened since my last post...

* Started back teaching 2nd grade. I've really enjoyed my first few weeks of school, and I think I have a sweet little class.

* We've had a lot of fun hanging out with friends... Josh and Kayci and Chris and Jenny moved to Houston this summer. And we're SO glad they did! Josh is the new preacher at our church... Chris started medical school and Jenny started graduate school here in Houston. We're very thankful they're all here!

* And then...like most of you already know...I found out I was pregnant!! A big surprise for everyone...probably most surprising to Matt and me! Matt's been great about it and was very encouraging when I found out. But I think the words "panic attack" were muttered by him a few times in the weeks to follow. I'm 13 weeks along and feeling great...just feeling a little pudgy around the middle. My due date is March 19th... And we're getting excited. I love that I get to be pregnant with my sister-in-law, Hollie, whose due in February. It'll be fun to have lots of cousins running around!

I'm sure I'll have more to post later about pregnancy and babies...But I think right now I need to go take another nap...since I'm pregnant.

Here's my first official pregnancy photo... We took this at the end of July in Fort Worth with my college girls... This is one of our favorite traditions..."pointing pictures". I LOVE these girls!

And hopefully I really won't have that pointy of a belly when I'm pregnant.

I was wondering if I needed to call and beg you to post. I about fell off the rolling chair when I opened up and saw you had done it without me calling. We had so much fun with you last weekend and I'm so glad you came over. Guess I'll trudge back this Thursday for the consultation. I posted when I got back last week. It'll be a quick day trip but I'll post about it later so you can catch up. Give Matt a hug......give yourself one too, kiss your tummy ( can you do that?) and then go take a nap. LOVE YOU ALL
