It’s been a while!

I haven’t written in forever…I feel bad.

Here is an update on all of us.

Zane is doing well in school.  Last week marked the end of the third quarter for him and the only place he is having any problems with is handwriting.  Don’t get me wrong, he can write his letters, but he still has a hard time with spacing them out and making sure to take the time so they are not backwards.  He is ready for summer break and talks about it constantly.  He also is ready to have a sibling.  He goes on forever about it and it is SO cute!  He has been enjoying being outside more often and looks forward to the warmer days so he can wear shorts.

Jeremy is working hard, as always.  He recently started racing his dirt bike.  Before, he would just go out on weekends and mess around with his friends.  He entered a desert race last weekend, but it was a partner race.  It was called a “boxer bash”.  One partner puts on a pair of boxers over his riding gear, runs to his bike, starts it, and sets off.  Mind you, there are about 60 other guys doing this at the same time as partner 1!  Then partner 1 makes a seven mile loop around and stops at the finish.  Here, partner 2 will put on the boxers that partner 1 has on and make the 7 mile loop.  It continues like this for an hour.  Jeremy and two friends (one his age, and one twenty years older) were going to be racing at this event.  They had several age groups.  First, Friend 1 and Friend 2 were going to race the “age” group.  This is for two partners whose ages, when combined, equal 60-79.  Then Jeremy and Friend 2 were going to race the “B” group.  This group is for the guys who are a little faster and a little more gutsy.  They also had a “C” and “A” class, as well as several age classes all the way up to “100+”.  Friend 2 broke his foot on the practice lap shortly after we arrived at the race.  This left Jeremy unable to race the “B” class and Friend 1 unable to race his class.  Jeremy filled in where Friend 2 couldn’t for Friend 1.  We had a good time, and the boys did well.  They weren’t totally last.  I think Jer said they came in 14th out of 20.  It was a fun, dirt filled day.

I have been doing much better.  The morning sickness is almost totally gone.  There are a few exceptions when it comes to smells…but I haven’t gotten “sick” sick in a while.  The baby moves constantly and we can hopefully start calling “it” a HIM or HER on monday!!  I am showing quite a bit, which I find uncomfortable, because people think I am much further along.  I heard that with your second child, you show much sooner though, so I just shrug it off. 

My pants aren’t fitting anymore.  I bought a Bella Band on a few weeks ago and would be lost without it.  We can’t seem to find any of my maternity clothes that I spent hundreds on six years ago, but with the Bella Band I can wear my pants completely unbuttoned and still walk around just fine.  things are MUCH more comfortable!  I can still BUTTON my pants, but I won’t be able to sit with them buttoned…

Right now, we are waiting to close on a house.  We had a few issues and the seller put it back on the market, but we are still first when it comes to buying it.  We are really excited, but not getting our hopes up too high anymore.  Zane is in love with the idea of having a back yard, though.

I have to start cleaning house, on this LOVELY, WARM saturday.  My friend’s baby shower is today, and I have a Senior I get to photograph tomorrow.  Other than that, things are steadily humming along.
