This morning I had my OB/GYN checkup appointment (thanks Amy for watching the boys). Everything is going well and the baby was very active as usual when we listened to his/her heartbeat. I will be having the anatomy ultrasound on September 14 for those who are eager to know if baby is a girl. We are trying not to get our hopes up.
Yesterday, Don gave a wonderful talk in church on provident living. He used this website for a lot of his info Provident Living.

My Grandma Mary Decker sent Don and I this L.A. Times crossword puzzle to do. When we came to #36 across. "Big name in Arizona political history," we figured out why...the answer is UDALL. That was fun. Thank you Grandma for sending this to us. I cannot believe you do these puzzles every week, it was tough!

I am so proud of Nicholas. We have done this Toy Story puzzle together numerous times and yesterday he surprised me by doing it, as he would say, “All by mine own self.”
I have never seen a kid want to do things independently so much as Nick. He keeps trying until he figures it out. He gets frustrated, then I try to help him and he just tells me “no mommy, I want to do it!” He is a very sharp and persistent little guy.

Here is the link to TIME mag’s cover story for Aug. and my thoughts on it.
Ugh! No wonder why I did not loose much weight while training for my marathon last year. The whole reason I did such a daunting task was NOT actually to loose weight, however. I really did it just to challenge myself. I admire people who have run a marathon and I’ve wanted to do it for a long time. My body did change a little bit though and I felt healthier. Mainly I just felt like I could accomplish anything I put my mind too...hoping to lose a little baby fat in the process.
This article was good for me to read. Working out harder and longer does not mean I get that treat later on.
