Aprons & Pearls

Bucket Lists and the Aprons & Pearls Linkup

Busy week at home, not so much on Timeless Mama!
I am working on scheduling some of the awesome guest posts that have come in. I am quite excited about them. The ladies that have helped out are some fantastic writers.
I am also going to schedule out the Aprons & Pearls Linkups for the summer. Maybe longer…we will see how time is running today.
We had a midwife appointment yesterday. Little one should be here within 3-4 weeks.  We are at 38 now, our first was born at 39+2, our middle was 41+2, and our youngest was 40 exactly, so we have no ideas what to expect this time. Except that baby will likely be around 8 pounds, and 21 inches long, just like the other babies. If there was some way to tell how much baby weights we could probably predict when they will make their appearance!
Part of me is ready to have baby, part of me is not! Lots to do still, but I am not moving fast these days!
We attended a local festival this weekend and had a great time. Saw some tall ships, learned about pirates, walked around tons, hid some of our painted rocks (we know a lot of them were found because when we came back through they were gone, the children were so excited!), got a bit dehydrated, got sunburned, and saw some fireworks. I also got to shop a bit with our girlie. She was so excited to find a chair for her doll house (really a cell phone chair, but it works very well for her dolls).
Our spring bucket list is not quite all done, but we have accomplished much of it. We still have a couple of weeks until summer though, so we might just do it.
Hubby caught a spiders in one of our bug catcher things. Our youngest just happens to love “itsy bitsy spider” right now and thinks that it is great.`
I have started tentatively planning out our summer bucket list. With baby coming a lot of things are still up in there air, but I want to have some ideas ready to go. I will be sharing those Monday.
The boys have gotten into Legos lately. Like, the small, worst-pain-in-the-world-if-you step-on-them sort. Sunday night, our oldest learned the hard way not to stick them up his nose. Thankfully daddy was able to coach him on blowing it out. He was freaked out enough that I do not think he will try it again. Needless to say, everyone got a “You never stick anything in your nose or ears” lecture.
Hubby and I were talking about the children the other night. Our first born is a shy, reserve, careful fellow. Our middle is rather reckless, not necessarily meaning to be crazy, just not paying attention. Our (current) youngest is the daredevil, knowing what he’s doing. It will be interesting to see what our new one will be like.
This is our last week of regular activities. AWANAS, story time, and science time all wrap up this week. There will be special programs at the library, and our summer reading challenge there, but nothing regular.
We got this kiddie pool set up this week. It was a nice, hot week, so the children enjoyed it.
They also camped out in the backyard with daddy-twice. They could probably spend the summer in the tent, but poor daddy does not sleep too well on the ground. We might have to get him a yoga mat or something.
On to the linkup!

The Aprons & Pearls Link-up

“If you want to experience consistent victory and see it played out in the atmosphere of your home, continually look for areas in which the Holy Spirit is leading to greater obedience, and ask God what your part is in making that a reality.

Aprons & Pearls Link~up @godschicki
This is a Christ-based weekly link-up to encourage others in their walks, and help Christian bloggers get their work out there.
Leave links to posts that are:
Homemaking/natural living/parenting/Christian walk related.
This could be natural living posts, recipes, cleaning, parenting, devotions, lessons, homeschool, Christian living, mentoring, modesty, gardening, homemade, diy, marriage, relationships, frugality, etc.

Linking Guidelines:

    • Link directly to your post (not to your homepage).
    • Please, no marketing posts (Plexus, Jamberry, MLM Oils or the like). Affiliate links to relevant items okay.
    • While I personally do not see anything wrong with a glass of wine every once in a while, please do not include alcoholic beverage recipes. It is a stumbling block to many, and I am not comfortable including them. They will be deleted.

  1. I went to 2 baby showers over the weekend, and I was thinking of you because soon we’ll be hearing your great news!
    Blessings to you in these days of preparation and anticipation!

  2. With Father’s Day coming up, it was a blessing to read once again about your husband camping out with the kids. It’s so encouraging to hear about or meet moms and dads who are working so hard at being the parents God wants them to be. You are both sweet examples. Praying for you as your delivery time draws closer.
