Labor day weekend is the best time of year in Ligonier. It means more than an extra day off work. It means there will be something to do on that extra day. The marshmallow festival is this weekend every year. It's a wonderful excuse to see vintage baseball, see a parade, and just walk around an otherwise sleepy town just to see who you see. While growing up here, it was the only weekend all summer that anything fun happened in town. The promise of fun makes me want to get out my camera and capture my ever-changing little one in action!
The baby fever took a firm hold...then dissipated. I was to the point that I was a little apprehensive of getting pregnant knowing that a late spring baby would mean I would miss out on much of another summer. The post-partum depression from the first one, coupled with very little outside time for me means that I have no intention of missing another summer. Anyway, God has intervened. I was saying, "maybe not RIGHT now," but God has given a resounding "YES!" #2 is due on April 15th, 2010. I'm planning to go to the New Eden center again. At least this time I won't have moved in to a new house the day before! The growth of my family is overwhelmingly joyous for me! I have no idea what challenges lie ahead of me now. I imagine that Danny will be the perfect, loving, gentle brother. I can envision taking the both of them outside with me while I garden and having no problems. HA! It probably won't happen.
Fun times are calling and I'm done with work early. Love to all.
