Day at Sea World

Yesterday we took another trip down to San Diego and spent the day at Sea World. This is the last time we will get to go before the baby is born. It was good we went when we did, because at my dr appt today, I was told to limit any extra activities. Oh yeah, and something about laying on my left side as much as possible and taking tylenol four times a day. Anyway, here are a few photos from our day.

My cute little penguins.

Ransom on his first ride ever! He was scared at first, but was soon loving it.

Hero was able to ride on the Elmo angel all by herself.

Ransom turned a little green on this one.

Long time, no post

Okay, so I was recently reminded that I have not blogged in two weeks. Not since Hero's last week of school. (I can't believe it has only been two weeks...seems like 12.) I will not go incredibly in depth about our life happenings in that time span, but I give you some highlights.
First, yes, I am still pregnant. No, we do not have a name. Yes, I realize that we only have four weeks left and the baby could theoretically be born at any time. Don't remind me. I thought up until a few days ago that this child would be easier on her Momma than her closest sibling, but I am mistaken. I have a very hard time sleeping at night. I wake up with a sore stomach from being pummeled internally during the night. But enough complaining....
Second, Justin is currently studying Greek. It is kind of strange for me to see him facing a challenge in a class. He is definitely up to the task. He is studying every day. I am amazed at how much he has learned over the past few weeks.
Third, family life has kept me on my toes, constantly. I have been trying hard to establish a morning prayer time with the kids. After we pray (a page from our church's directory), I make a list out for each child to accomplish for the day. I wish I could say this is going great, but it is still a work in progress. I can see that my attitude has a dramatic effect on this. I also realize that just because you pray with your kids in the morning, it is not a magic formula for having a smooth rest of the day!
Lastly, the weather has been HOT here. The kids have been coping by playing in the pool and I have been coping by enjoying central air conditioning and Popsicles.
I apologize for not having new photos up. I will work on that soon. Tomorrow we are going to Sea World so I hope to have a few from that at least. That reminds me. I should probably Google where the closest Kaiser is in San Diego, just in case....
