Nine (and a half) Weeks to Go

Nine weeks to go in my pregnancy. It seems like FOREVER and I feel like its time to get prepared....mentally and otherwise.

 I have to dig out the baby clothes that I have been saving and also the toys and then pack a few things for the hospital. I need to buy diapers and a special going home outfit for the baby. And then there's the whole thing about all my kids not being able to fit into my car. 

Hmmmmm....not sure how that will work out yet.

I'm trying hard to keep up, but the endless piles of laundry and toys on my floor make it hard. Boss got me one of those clamps on a metal stick so I don't have to bend over to pick things up. It's kind of hilarious actually.

I am sure with Christmas coming, the weeks will zoom by. 

So here's what we have been up to:

We went out on Veterans Day for several free meals. TGIF had a great lunch for veterans and Son was loving it there because there was a TV at our table. 

I love that so many restaurants celebrate this day and I know it means so much to many veterans to feel appreciated and honored:

On Thursday we had a Play Doh day at our homeschool group. It was a lazy plan on my part because I didn't prepare a lesson in time, but it worked out great.

I took about 20 cans of Play Doh, natural materials like rocks, shells, leaves, and sticks, googley eyes, pipe cleaners, straws.... Anything I could find. The kids used them to make unique creations:

I also set up a table with laminated mats that had instructions to complete the photos:

Here are two mats that Princess completed:

The kids played grocery store that day at home. Princess's favorite saying that day was "It's 100 bucks, honey".

Last night we went to Clark's Fish Camp for dinner. The boys wore matching shirts. The funny thing is that Boss has had his shirt for several years and I found Son's shirt at a yardsale:

And here they are in a sibling selfie:
