It's been awhile...

So I realized its now July and I made my last post at the beginning of May so its time for an update.   I haven't updated because I feel like I don't have anything interesting to say.  But actually we have had quite a month. 

The month started out with us having to make some very difficult family decisions, and the issues are ongoing.  I would prefer not to go into details but only ask that you keep the Brown Family in your prayers. 

The week of June 20th-24th was Kidconnect camp(a sports camp that is our version of VBS) at our church, Meadowridge Community Baptist Church.  It was a very amazing but draining week.  Especially when you are 28 weeks pregnant and being the 2nd in charge.  Even with all our human weakness, God did some amazing things through our church!  And I love getting to watch my husband shine at what he does best.  Although God has gifted him with youth ministry and not necessarily Children's Ministry, Nick volunteered to lead "Pandemonium", large game-time at the end every day. He had so much fun with it and the kids loved him, although I did give him a few pointers about how the development of preschoolers is different than  school aged children.  Also I saw some of our youth make some very adult decisions and just be all around awesome.  By Thursday I was so amazed with some of them I pulled them aside and told them how impressed I was by their actions that week.

Last weekend Nick and I went to a "Prepared Childbirth class".  I did learn some more in depth things about stuff I already knew.  I'll never forget the look on Nick's face when the nurse talked about an episiotomy, priceless, His eyes were huge!    Touring the Hospital became a little surreal to me, I realized all these things are actually going to happen to me whether I want them to or not.

The week before the class one of my friends gave me an opportunity for a a free sonogram from her clinic, which I jumped at.  The nurse at my Doctors office told me the 2 Ive had(at 8 weeks and at 20 weeks) were all I was getting.   So everything I read online says at 29 weeks(this week), baby is 2.5 pounds, when I had the sonogram at 28 weeks he was already 2 pounds and 13 ounces!

The rest of the month found me learning the joys of the third trimester, although there is probably more to come, I'd like to believe that these not so fun parts are all of what lies ahead or even better this is only going to get better:)

Anyway, Nick and I continue walking this path one step at a time...
