Well, tomorrow, the 27th, is the first guess date that we are approaching. We will see if Tressie is right or not. I went to the Dr. yesterday and she said the baby is head down, hasn't really dropped, I'm not dilated at all, and the baby is about 8 lbs (though she said she is not very good at estimating weight). She did say that there is more baby in there than I get credit for...my interpretation-I look small and am all baby. My next appointment is Thursday, unless I go into labor before then!
Andrea and Karl and Kaden came and stayed for a couple of days this week. We had a lot of fun with them. I particularly enjoyed the part where Andrea did all my laundry and fixed my hair dryer...again. Micah and Karl worked up at the ag shop and got it all in order. I am very glad about that because now Micah isn't worried about it and won't be when the baby gets here. Now all we need to do is get his classroom in order (which Andrea helped us with) and figure out what he is going to teach. They worked hard and may not want to come back for a while, especially since my fish bowl still isn't clean.
This morning we went to a ceremony for National Guard troops leaving for Iraq in a few weeks. We went to see Lucas Arnold, a friend from church in Paris. We are very proud of him and his family and ask for prayers for his safety and for the comfort of his family.
