A New Grandbaby is on the Way! (Almost. :o)
We have such exciting news! Elisabeth, my daughter-in-law, is at least..on the way.. to having our new grandson. She's been kind of in and out of labor the last two days. We are expecting things to pick back up any minute/hour/day? She has already made a lot of progress...and now is sort of 'hanging' on the precipice of having the baby. I don't want to go into all the details..but this baby will be coming fast. So I'm finishing up my paperwork for the week and getting the laundry caught up so as to be available for what ever she and Andrew need in the next few days.
I will be hanging out with them some after the baby is born, so you may not hear much from me in the next few days. But I am going to pre-schedule a few posts of things that I've been wanting to share but couldn't last week due to all the painting and traveling.
I'm going to start working on Beef Stroganoff for the kids sometime in the next day or two. Got to do something with all this energy!!
My new grandson's name will be August Shepherd Rodgers. ( Although they might change their minds...I guess it's not settled till the baby is born.) Did I mention that my son's wife is German? I'm working on my German in the hopes to be able to read fairy tales from the book I bought in Germany to read to my German grandchildren. Maybe I should just sign up for a class at the local community college! :o)
Speaking of grandchildren, I've discovered a new way to 'keep in touch' thanks to my smart and wonderful Aunt Joan. She visits with her kids and grandchildren, that live in Washington state, via web-cam. Now why did I not think of that? In a couple of days, I'm going to talk Amanda and Matthew (my marine son) and see if they have a web-cam and Skype. If not, I shall buy the web-cam for them. :o)
SKYPE yet..you are missing out on a great FREE communication tool.
On another note, I did get Jacob to his test at the community college on time... (with 10 minutes to spare driving from Grand Prairie..very fast!) I still had paint all over me. How embarrassing!
He will be attending orientation next week and meeting counselors. Talk about a busy month!!
When I'm not helping Elisabeth with the baby, I'll be sewing mom's cushion covers and supervising my last homeschooled child's lessons. It's going to be a VERY busy year with one child graduating, two kids working, and full-time school with the third plus a brand new grandson close by.
Hope you are having as much fun as I am! Every day is such a sweet gift from the Lord...
For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth. By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
