Our last baptism for a while. Skye kept walking around telling everyone that she will be baptized in five years so she is already looking forward to the event. It was a very special day and you can read more about our baptisms in this post!
After the baptism we were able to have a luncheon with family over at our house to celebrate.
The Rhodes Rolls DEFINITELY rose haha…
We had a soup bar and it hit the spot. My mom brought her amazing taco soup and we had chicken cream cheese chili. We also had a chicken noodle soup that was okay but I don’t want to link it because I want to find a better crockpot version:)
My in-laws brought delicious fruit with grapes that were the size of ping-pong balls.
And Knox’s favorite part had to be the selection of chips.
Rewind to Saturday morning—> 4ish miles with my sister and 30 miles for the week. I’m back to walking any and every incline that I come across and my sister isn’t complaining about me forcing us to walk;)
I wonder how many more miles we will run together…
Skye was not a fan of the sudden weather change that we experienced this weekend. It was 50 degrees and she wanted all of the blankets ha… its going to take some time to acclimate.
Brooke had just a little bit to go to finish her Marathon in a Month program from her school so she did it yesterday while we took Beretta on a walk.
Nothing like that finish line feeling…
And I wish you could have seen how proud she was of herself.
We celebrated afterwards with a hot chocolate tea party.
And then had a very lazy day. Andrew and I started the movie next to each other but then the girls snuck in between us:)
The final countdown is on (less than a month now!) and Andrew just set up his paternity leave with his work. He gets up to 6 weeks of paternity leave (with a percentage of his normal pay) after we have the baby which I am thrilled about. He will take the first week off and then has to work for a week (for trainings that he can’t miss) and then will take another few weeks completely off. I am so grateful he will be able to do this because I have a feeling we are in for quite an adjustment soon:)
And as far as blogging goes… your guess is as good as mine. My boss (me haha) has nothing set up for maternity leave so there will definitely be posts from me (probably shorter and not as many for a few weeks) and some guest posts from Andrew, my mom and my sister. I’m excited to share the changes/18 hours of couch time a day/highs/lows with you.
Back to figuring out a new little human and sleepless nights again, we can’t wait.
PS it feels kind of strange that the kids won’t be meeting him/her until we get home from the hospital but I’m sure it will still feel very special.
Those of you reading with kids or planning to have kids—> What are the maternity/paternity plans set up at your job or your partner/spouse’s work?! I’d love to hear them!
Last running accomplishment that you had! I want to hear them… big, small, medium, anything that made you feel accomplished!
In honor of Knox and his love for chips—> What is your favorite kind of chip?
Is it getting cold where you are?!?!
