Just for a change, I thought I might update our blog with the events that have been going with us lately.
School is going really well for Clayton. He's doing great in all of his classes. The other night we went to a potluck with his classmates and one of his teachers told me that Clay is one of her "wisest" students. Whatever that means...but I'm still really happy for him. I know that he's great, but it's nice when the rest of the world recognizes it too. This semester is not nearly as bad as the first one. Without his Anatomy class, everything seems a lot easier. He does have plenty of group project though which takes away from "us" time but he's really motivated and trying to get the majority of that work done before our baby gets here.

School is going well for me. I'm just working on finishing up a few courses through Independent Study so I can officially be a graduate. I've already completed two classes (Bio 100 and New Testament). I'm more than half way through my Children's Lit class, and have made significant progress on my Calligraphy class. Once again, the goal here is to get these done before baby gets here. Wish me luck!

Our pregnancy has gone pretty smoothly. Today we are at 36 weeks, with only 4 weeks until our due date. This is very exciting because now I feel that I am in the home stretch. I anticipate the rest of the time going by pretty quickly. Between my classes, weekly doctor visits, and rearranging furniture to make room for baby, I think I'll stay pretty busy. Next week we get to have another ultrasound. Hopefully all is going well. I've included a picture of me now. I feel like I've got a watermelon under my shirt, but Clay measures and it's more like a basketball in size:)
So that's our life. We're also very excited about all the cousins you all will be providing for our little boy. It was very thoughtful of you:) In all seriousness, Congratulations to all of you. We are so excited and can't wait to meet all of your little ones.
