The Big Push!

No, not THAT! Not for at least another 6 weeks, anyway!

I am dreading this week because I will have so little time off and have a BIG wedding this Saturday - 350 people expected. It also has the ceremony as well as reception, which is a lot harder than when they get married in a church and just have the reception at the hotel. I am so thankful it's going to be sunny on Saturday, but have also heard it's going to be in the mid-90's. That is NOT what a person who is 35 weeks pregnant wants to hear on a day when she'll be running around like crazy! Oh well! This is my last big event before the baby is due. I have one more really small wedding on August 22nd and then can officially breathe easier and just look forward to my mom's visit and the baby's arrival.

Still no name. There are a few we both like, but nothing has really grabbed us yet. And with the first name so up-in-the-air, we are also waffling on the middle name. We would like the name to all fit together, but this is getting tougher and tougher as time goes on.

Owen and Sammy are enjoying Vacation Bible School this week and I think Chris is enjoying having some alone time with William. He drops them off at 9am and picks them up at noon, so it's just for a few hours. I'm so glad we've gotten involved in this church and that my kids will grow up actually ENJOYING going to church. Growing up Catholic, church was never something I enjoyed, just suffered through as something you HAD to do. (and going to Catholic school, I actually HAD to go to church at least twice a week!)

I think my last day at work will be September 9 and my mom arrives via train on the 10th. I'm so looking forward to her visit! She'll be with us for almost 3 whole weeks and that will be the longest period of time I've spent with her in almost two years, since I was home in MI after I had William. Hopefully the baby will come relatively early (close to the due date? PLEASE?) so that my back won't hurt anymore and we can have some fun.

You must be getting anxious about the name!! I was for my 3rd. We gave our boys Irish names so at least that narrowed the list somewhat. I've been thinking that you seem to give your boys 2-syllable names (unless Sammy is short for Sam). You have a more unique name with your first. Then traditional names for the 2nd and 3rd. I had the name Mitchell pop into my head. Maybe because William has L's in it too.
I feel for you about the hot weather wedding on Sat. Two Sats ago we attended a wedding at 6:00 p.m. at a resort on a lake and the wedding ceremony faced the sun. The guest stood off to the side until the LAST minute. People had sweat dripping off themselves. We guests just wanted the ceremony to be over fast. Then they had drinks and some munchies on the terrace and then buffet dinner under a white tent. So the reception was more comfortable. That is a huge number of guests. Hope it goes well!!!
