The beginning of August brought another journey for me and the Rosebuds. My sister was in her 38th week of pregnancy and Mr. Rose was going on a business trip, so I thought it would be a good idea to visit home. While we were there, I helped my sister do the last minute pregnancy things that she needed help with and even got a chance to be there with her during some of her labor. She gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on August 7. I felt so blessed to be able to be there for her. Now that I have had a chance to process the whole experience, I continue to be in awe of the miracle of life. God is so good!
The girls and I have returned home now and are getting ready for school to start again (YAY!) Miss H will be in a two day a week preschool, so I am trying to plan out some regular activities to keep us occupied. I think we will be frequenting our local library storytimes and I may even enroll Miss H in some type of dance or gymnastics class.
As for me, you will be so proud of me! I joined a book club!! Each month there are TWO books to read and so far I have read the first one. I love having a deadline (and a required reading book) to keep me on task. I have trouble picking books for myself, and if I don't have something to make me read.....I just won't!
I am also getting back on the Couch to 5K wagon. I have to lose this last 10 pounds of Baby B weight. A friend of mine is going to train with me, so again, I have someone to keep me honest!
I feel like there is so much I want to do, just not enough time to do it in. Such is life, eh?
Have a great week friends!!
