This week was exhausting and I think it was due to our negotiating with the house. We did end up buying it but it was mentally tough for me! We close October 8. I'm so excited! Also I had to start testing my kids this week and it takes so long to do one test with a kid, then the rest of the kids are on their own basically- and they're 5. So you can imagine how well that goes. I've tried different methods (like only having each kid answer 1 or 2 questions each time they come see me at my desk) but it's just all taking forever. Can't wait until all that's over! But as soon as one assessment is done, another starts. ANYway... I took a picture today (Sunday) which is technically my 18th week but oh well. It's my friend Ashley and I at her shower, poor Ashley- her baby is already almost 7 pounds and she is due October 24!! She won't last that long I hope.
