Memorial weekend and Possum

We had a very fun filled weekend camping at Lake Cyprus Springs.  We spent the weekend doing some boating, jet skiing, swimming, floating, bike riding, and lots of eating!!  It was such a blast, and we definitely enjoyed the time away.  This is the last week of school for the kids and I and we are soooo excited.  Tomorrow, Jolea and Luke will graduate from Kindergarten!  Luke will going on to first grade next year while Jolea is going to stay behind and do one more year of kindergarten.  She is a very smart girl, but with all her surgeries, hearing issues, and speech issues, one more year will be a good thing for her.  She is very hard on herself and her teachers and I were afraid that 1st grade may be a little overwhelming to her right now.  If she fails at doing anything she tends to just shut down, and I really believe that next year with her being experienced and able to be the one ahead (the leader) she is really going to thrive!  It will also be good to have her separated from her brother.

Now for an update on baby Possum!  Yes, that is what Luke has decided to name the baby, with a little help from his Grandad. I went to the Dr. today and had another ultrasound, and wow has Possum grown!  The baby was moving and kicking all around. It was just amazing.  What a little miracle?!!  Breanna was able to go with me today and I was so thrilled that she got to see.  We were able to see little arms, kicking legs, and a strong little heart beating!  As for Mom, I was thrilled to learn that I hadn't gained any weight! Whoohoo!  I was a little nervous about it considering clothes aren't fitting anymore and after all that I ate this weekend.  The sickness is still going strong, that's probably why there was no weight gain.  He did give me some meds to help last week and most days the pills are like magic, but today....not so good.  That's all part of the miracle though! 

I didn't get many pictures from the lake so I'm not posting any from the weekend, but I do have a picture of a sweet little Possum!
