Life Out Here

We are all in Ault now! The girls and I enjoyed our week of rest at my parents’ house but we are very happy to be at home with Tim and the cats again.

Some brief pregnancy updates: Sarah is doing great. I have had my first appointment with my midwife and been very pleased. Latest ultrasound shows a very healthy baby still on the large size. I have an increased amniotic fluid level, and no one really knows why. Basically, the extra fluid + large baby means I look huge! I have 3.5 weeks left until my due date…maybe she will have mercy on me and come a little early 🙂 She is really kicking me in the ribs now!

The kids are adjusting well to the move. They like the house and are excited about the baby and all the baby things we are finally setting up. There is a playground about two blocks away from our house that we visited for the first time today. And, it is not too hot to play on it!! The weather here does get hot in the afternoon, but unlike in Birmingham, it is not hot in the evenings or mornings. And there’s a nice breeze most of the time, so even if you are outside in the afternoon, if you are in the shade, it’s fine. And guess what…I can walk from my car to a store without my clothes sticking to me!

I am looking forward to this weekend. It’s Tim’s first Sunday of preaching, and there is also a town fall festival going on. Our church is having its service in the park Sunday morning as part of the festival.

On the way home from the playground tonight, I ran into a family who lives about a block down the street from us. They have a five-year-old girl and the mom is expecting a baby next week. I am hoping we have found some nearby playmates!

Colorado is beautiful and I will try to get some pictures up here or on Facebook soon.

I am missing everyone back home. I’m sure that as the days go on and I (finally) finish all the unpacking and have less to keep me occupied, the homesickness will hit harder. But throughout this whole move, I have felt God’s hand on my family and I am confident we are where we need to be, and I am excited to see how this adventure is going to turn out.
