Wow! Time flies so fast. Yesterday, we set the date for me to be induced. We are going to plan on May 8th, her original due date. I can't believe it's almost time. This next week will be my last week at work. The other teachers on my team threw a baby shower for me and another teacher who is pregnant. We got lots of good stuff, including wipes, blankets, bibs, cute outfits, and Annabeth's first book of fairy-tales! I also got tons of great advice. I love the teachers on my team and will miss working with them.

Ok, someone please tell me that this looks like a giant, pink hairspray bottle! In addition to being choir director, teacher, choreographer, and sound technician, I am now also a set designer. Ah the joys of being a middle school teacher. Dad was nice enough to nail this cardboard box to a wooden post. Brent and I spray painted it this afternoon. Ok, Julie, so I know I'm no artist like you, but I think it looks pretty good for someone with limited abilities.

Just got back from the doctor today. Everything looks good. I was unaware that they like to schedule patients a week early for induction! I'm so not ready! I have some much to get done at school before I leave, including putting together the spring concert for the kids. The show choir is putting on a short production of "Hairspray" and the concert choir is singing "High School Musical." I used to like these musicals but now am so sick of the songs I could just puke! I cannot wait until the whole thing is over so I can leave for the school year. God bless the substitute that has to teach my classes!!!

Yesterday was Annabeth's baby shower. I wish I had pics to post but unfortunately, I forgot my camera so I've got to get copies from mom. Once again, I realized that I have wonderful friends and an amazing family. Everything was so nice and I felt so special! Grandma Rosie was so sweet to let us use her house. It was the perfect place to have the shower. I owe lots of thanks to her, my mom, my sisters, my sisters in law, and my best friend Holli. Thanks for making it such a special day for me. I will always remember it. This morning I woke up and washed all of the baby's new clothes. It is so strange to hold clothes that small! They look like doll clothes. I just can't get over it! Wow, it's all starting to feel a lot more real to us now. We can't wait!
