Well, we've been MIA long enough, I suppose, from the blogging world! A two-month break has been good, although I have missed 'journaling' our updates, if for no one else than for ourselves!! LOTS has been going on in the Wright world, for which we PRAISE the LORD and are truly delighting in the "new's" of our "now."
One "new" in our lives is that we've MOVED!!! Yay!!! So, about two months ago, I was doing this....
while my precious youngens were doing this... :) Such delightful little helpers!! It was a LOT of work with two toddlers on hand, but God gave me the grace and energy and everything I needed to get started boxing up the old house!
I haven't mentioned Russell in all the help of moving because he started a new job that requires LOTS of travel, especially that first month!! Including a week to Germany!! Wow!! So Russell's new job is another "new" in our lives, for which we are jumping up and down :) with praise and shouts of thanksgiving!!! He LOVES what he is doing, and he does enjoy the travel, too. :) We are all excited for him and for us in this new adventure!
Here's the new house! Looks cozy, huh? :) Well, it's actually come a long way! (hoping to post pics soon!)
One of the first projects Russell was able to accomplish before traveling took over :) was building a pallet to hold our yard shed and installing the shed! He did GREAT!!!
And, of course, Rhys jumped in on the action to help!! :)
Our sweet Rhys finished up one year of 'school' (school party below :)), and he and little brother just started summer school!!! I'm so excited for some time to 'nest' in our new house and home while they are having a wonderful time at school!!! It's AMAZING how much I can accomplish in 5 hours!!!! Then, they come home and nap for 2 or more hours! :) Two days like that per week will be great for all of us!! Yay!!! I am thankful for that 'new' in our lives, where BOTH boys are in school!! (Oh, and this is why I'm able to jump back into the blogging world! I have TIME to myself to organize and journal our lives, yet again, in pictures and words!! Yay!! :))
And the next big 'new' in our lives is definitely another PRAISE!!!
Here is the 9 week ultrasound pic... (so sweet!! laying on his/her :) back with the arm and foot buds upward)
One thing different this go around, too, is my food cravings and aversions!!! Man! When I want something, I WANT it!!!! I have craved Sonic's supersonic breakfast burrito and tater tots many times! :) McDonald's chicken nuggets and sounthwest grilled chicken salad MANY times!! Captain D's :) several times!!! I want things FRIED!!! :) Oh, and french fries are pictured in a cloud over my head ALL the time! I dream of double-battered french fries!! Ha!! Needless to say, I'm enjoying all this UNhealthy eating right now FOR the baby, right? ;) He/she is demanding it, so I must oblige! And as far as aversions, I want basically NOTHING from our kitchen! :) I haven't cooked in over a month (my poor family, and our poor budget!) because I don't want to handle or prepare food, especially raw meats. I am hoping this will change SOON!!! :) I think my family's hoping for that change, too! It truly is amazing how different pregnancies can be!! Whew!
I think that about sums up the 'new' things of our lives during this season! It's been fun to embrace it all, and we do praise the Lord for the waterfall of blessings and change in our lives! I look forward to sharing more as we continue in this adventure of life that He allows us to live! :)
