July Wrap-up

Still no due date was July 29 and that day has come and gone...
If nothing happens this week I am scheduled to be induced on Friday Aug 5th. At least there is an end in sight!
The Schneider's annual slip and slide party was a few weeks ago. This year each family dressed up. I stayed home but the boys (aka pirates) had a blast! Karl came in a close second and slid over 60 feet!

After Church today...Jeanette and Erin came on Tues last week. The plan was to have them help with the boys while I cared for baby and much for that plan!! Unfortunatly Jeanette had to leave today but will hopefully be able to come back in a few weeks to meet the baby. Erin will be here until next Saturday. It has been great having them here. Life with two little boys gets difficult when you are over 40 weeks pregnant and their help is amazing!

Matt and Micah participated in Soccer Camp this past week. The boys seemed to enjoy it and and really learned a lot. The coaches for the camp were from England and had come over to the US to run week long camps all around the western states. The camp was very oganized and well run.

Matt really learned a lot during the week. He has not had any exposure to soccer prior to this camp and by the end of the week had made great progress with some skills. It was obvious the difference between a 5 year old and a 3 year old when it comes to soccer! Micah spent most of the time sitting on his ball but loved running over for water breaks! He said he had fun though and that is what counts.

Karate Camp

The boys participated in Karate Camp this week. It was one hour a day this week. The boys LOVED it!! I have never seen kids be so active for a full 60 minutes! They learned some basic kicks, punches and grappling maneuvers. Most important the boys had blast and got VERY tired! They have been in bed asleep at 7pm each night this week!! There is another camp the first week in Aug. I may have the boys do it again, we will see.
I'm now 38 weeks prego and no baby! AHHH I have been reading on natural ways to induce labor and a mom at karate was telling me about acupressure points on the feet and legs that she said worked for her. So I looked it up last night and put Karl to work...I"m still very pregnant...It didn't work. Karl said, "I can't do this very long it hurts my fingers." Really Karl, your fingers may hurt but look at me!! The good news is we should have a big healthy baby that is ready to come out eating, crying, sleeping and pooping just like he/she should! I can't stay prego for ever... but the wait is so hard!

Backyard Play!

We have had a relaxing long weekend! Karl's birthday was on Sunday. After church we went out to lunch. In the evening we went to my parents house for a bbq. I think he had a pretty good day!

We had a lazy 4th of July and hung at home. I had been keeping my eye on some material I liked for window valences. I took advantage of the the weekend sales and got it! I started them yesterday and am very excited about it! I plan to put them in the living/play room. As long as I stay pregnant I can hopefully finish them but if a baby comes soon the project will be put on hold!

Saturday, Karl's boss had a work bbq at his house. The kids, including Karl, had a blast in the bouncer, riding scooters, water squirter fights, and basketball. Good times!

Karl's new website is up and running! Check out Pass it along to your friends who maybe interested in running training programs, personal coaching, and general core exercises. He is offering 20% off in July as an introductory special! Spread the word...he has great knowledge and experience with running physiology and coaching and I know can help runners achieve their goals!
