Once again we have been just plain too busy for posting much. Whoever said that summer days are lazy didn't live my life. Or just wasn't in their third trimester during the summer! But we are knocking some things out.

- The blackberries are ripe. the kids have been enjoying going out in the evenings and getting some. They are wild, and have a bitter after taste, but are great with ice cream, and in jam.

- We've been getting lots of cucumbers, green peppers, jalapenos, and banana peppers. And my herbs are growing strong. There are lots of green tomatoes... still waiting for them to ripen. Lots of watermelon and cantelope are growing. Can't wait to eat them... I could eat those two fruits all day long right now. Pregnancy cravings and all.

- I did not get officially diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes, but did come back borderline. I will need to follow the diet, and do a two hour test once a week to monitor, but am glad I am not in the dangerous zone.

- Believe it or not, Bethany is 1 year old today! That is an amazing trick. I am not sure how in the world this year passed so fast. I'll be trying to get a few good photos today, so keep posted.

-We are almost done with the downstairs as far as decluttering and organizing goes. I threw out about 6 big garbage bags of stuff, took some to the thrift store, and generally just put back where things go. I also have about 5 boxes of things to sell. It will feel good to have it all done!

- We are re-doing our chore charts, etc. before the baby is born. It's always a transition, but hopefully things will be running smoothly again soon.

- Bible Bee memorization continues. We are taking a week to review, just to help it to stick a bit better in their heads. I plan on making a Bible Bee entry soon, just to record what all we are doing. The children have put so much of the Word in them!!!

- Soon I need to turn my mind to planning for school again. Wow... where has the summer flown? Oh yeah... in doing all this organizing!

I am 29 weeks pregnant today. Since I have 37-38 week babies, we only have 8-9 weeks left. It will come up on us all too fast, especially since we cannot figure out a name we love! Poor little thing!
