a few things on Friday 2.8.13


1. We have an addition joining our family! Baby #3 should be arriving in the late summer.

2. Charlie has declared the baby's name is going to be "Bubbles". When asked why he said it's because he loves blowing bubbles. Okay then.

3. I have already been asked if we will find out Baby #3's gender. We will. This mama needs to know if we will need to buy lots of pink or if we can use all boys' baby clothes.

4. Have you heard of this? Mr. Pen & Paint subscribes, and he shares happy news with me every week. It's a good way to stay encouraged about what's going on in the world.

5. Also, Mr. Pen & Paint (who is a middle school teacher) has started a People are Awesome Project. Every day he shares videos or stories with his students to remind them there are people in the world doing awesome things. He shared this video with them, and I thought it was cute.

6. I usually only wear my engagement/wedding rings and a ring that was my mama's, but every time I see these I get googly eyes.

7. Encourage someone today. Actually every day. When you encourage someone you never know how far it goes. I'll keep reminding you because it reminds me.

Happy Friday y'all!

  5. So exciting!! How far apart are your boys, if you don't mind me asking?
    Thanks so much for sharing the Good News Network. I've pretty much stopped reading or watching the news...all the bad stuff is just SO depressing. Most of the time it makes me want to hide in a remote cave somewhere.

    1. Charlie and Jack are 18 months apart. Charlie will be a little over 4.5 and Jack will be a little over 3 when baby comes!

      And I agree. We choose not to watch the news and we don't even have cable.

  16. Congratulations! That's so very exciting. And, I love that your husband is doing that with his students. Brilliant. All teachers should be doing things like that to encourage their students and make them feel like the world is still an ok place. Hope you're having a great week.

  17. Congratulations!
    After reading about Bubbles, I had to add that we are due in May and our five year old insists that the baby should be named Twinkle. How funny that both boys picked such great names!
