    Where did the summer go? I can't believe it's labour day already.

    Haven't been on in a while so here is an update.

    My grandma passed last week, I am sad about it because she is gone, but am relieved that she is no longer suffering and in pain.

    In more positive news.

    Tomorrow is the start of a new school year, and Natalie has a new teacher which I am happy about, this is not normal for senior kindergarten but her teacher moved on to other things. The assistant teacher is still there so there is a familiar face, and I found her fantastic, hope her and the new teacher work well together.

    Dana is also starting school tomorrow, she's going into her second year of high school (grade 10). She's grown a tiny bit over the summer and is slightly taller than me now, she's getting so big, but I think she is done growing in height.

    So sorry to hear about your grandma Amanda. Those losses are never easy. Your girls are getting so big! I totally think of Dana in like middle school - crazy to imagine her in her second year of HS!

    I'm just counting the day LOL We are so busy it will fly by. Now that Evan is in soccer we're basically running Thursdays and Fridays for that. It will be easier once the baby arrives and I'm home.

    I also started wondering about au pair vs nanny....so we're researching that too. We'll see if we can find someone who feels like a fit. I can think of a lot of pluses and a lot of potential pitfalls (like someone we don't like living in our house haha). We'll see I need to talk to the consultant and see what I think....

    Coming up on 37 weeks....any time now little one! Let's not be late like your brother!

    We don't have middle school here, though I like the idea. What grades are the middle schools there?

    Amanda - sorry about your grandma. DH's grandma just passed a few days ago, too. It has been expected for a long time (Alzheimer's for 20 years!). Good luck with the teachers. Raymond started school today and Alex starts tomorrow.

    Katie - I'll send labor vibes! I think 39w is the perfect time to have a baby. But I can understand you getting antsy. I know several people who have had au pairs and loved them. Good luck making a decision.

    AFM: 2-month-expired spermicide isn't a big deal... right? It's a good thing we'd be able to handle it if we had a fifth. I feel like it's onaly a matter of time.

    Amanda - schools are typically kindergarten (and increasingly pre-k) through 5th or 6th then middle is 6/7-8th then high school is 9-12. But different areas vary depending on the size of the district. They might combine more or less if they are really big or really small.

    Virginia- I'd say five is just a matter of time for you

    I am crampy today. I'm brushing them off as BH but it has been most the day. It isn't getting painful and I haven't had any more plug. I shouldn't have an issue sleeping though so I think it is just my body practicing....

    Amanda - I'm so sorry about your grandma. I totally understand what you mean about being sad that she's gone, but happy she isn't suffering anymore... I can't believe Dana is getting so old!!! I love the pics on FB, your girls are growing so big and both seem so happy and strong.

    Katie - sorry about getting rear-ended! I'm glad you're okay and that the boys weren't with you. What a total pita that it happened with someone uninsured! Ugh! I still can't believe you're almost due! I swear I missed most of your pregnancy because we were laptop-less for so long and I never checked in here on the tablet... Good luck getting everything ready! Don't be too shocked if baby comes early. I swear I was in denial for 8 hours of labor when I was having contractions with Benjamin at 39 weeks. I was in total denial... Xander was 2 full weeks late and I never ever imagined I'd have one early. lol.

    Virginia - I would think just being expired two months wouldn't really be that big of a deal.......... but you never know. lol

    AFM - Xander is doing really good with year two of Pre-K. Last year was a total nightmare getting him used to school (lost of tantrums, etc.) but this year it was absolutely no change at all. He's just happy to be back at school with his friends. But both kiddos got sick last weekend. I figured it'd come soon. It's like school starts and BAM kids are sick within a week. Hopefully we're not sick as much this year, though, since Xander already has a year of school under his belt. We'll see, I guess!

    Balloon Rally this weekend (lots of hot air balloons, kids loooove it) and DH's parents are coming to visit. Should be fun!

    I did finally get to sleep and no further progress. It was an entire afternoon of annoying bhs that were never really painful but were consistent! I am itching to meet this kid

    Lauren glad year two is going well! Balloon fest sounds fun!

    Hmm. I was really, really tired by dinner time last night, so this morning I gave into the whim to test. I'm only 8dpo, and I figured a BFN would be good for me. But... I'm not sure. I'm not sure it's a BFN and I'm not sure it's not. There is definitely a line there. I'm just not completely sure it's pink. Eek. Maybe.

    You better keep us posted Virginia!! I can totally imagine a BFP for you - it would be nice timing! Would be a unique birth month from your others I think - later in May looks like it would be a month away from Oliver.

    I'm feeling puffy. I didn't really swell much with the other two but I'm feeling a bit more swollen this go around. Nothing alarming just uncomfortable.

    Evan went golfing with DH today. DH said he did a good job not getting frustrated. The pictures were so cute. I took a nice nap since that is what Rory did. I'm waking multiple times a night so a nap was a nice treat.
