Lots of things have been going on with our family in the past few months.
- Briella started preschool at St. Bavo and loves it. You cannot imagine our happiness at the fact that she literally loves going to school. We were very worried after the last attempt at a preschool for her but I definitely think that St. Bavo is a great fit for her and us.
- Mike's football team is currently undefeated and has a chance to win the NIC championship outright with a victory this Friday night. They have a tough game ahead of them but I definitely think the motivation and discipline is there from both the coaches and the players to come out with a victory. If you are interested in listening to the game you can find it here at 7pm on Friday night.
- The most exciting thing going on with us is that we are awaiting the arrival of a new member of our family. Our new baby is likely going to be born within the next couple of days. This pregnancy has definitely been on the rough side for me. I've had some complications that I didn't have with Briella which have made it more difficult however I have been lucky in that the complications have been manageable and I did not have to stop working. Today is actually my first official day of maternity leave and if all goes well we will be going into the hospital tonight to start the inducing process.
So those are the major updates on our life. It feels almost surreal that our family of three will become a family of four in a matter of days. Briella has gotten over her initial shock of finding out she was getting a brother and seems to be ready to be a big sister (her first words when we told her it was a boy were "Are you kidding me?") I am sure there will be an adjustment period for all of us but hopefully it will be short and we will move into a new routine quickly.
I make no guarantees but I hope to have lots to share in the coming weeks so stay tuned!
