In a Jam

Today we decided to make strawberry freezer jam.  Last year in May we made some and it has lasted us all year; I just finished the last bottle yesterday.  They kids always enjoy helping, although they usually end up deserting me half way through the project!!
We bought two flats of strawberries.  I thought that might be a little ambitious but it didn't make as much as I thought.

The "fruits" of our labor!!

18 week update

I needed to give a little update just for my own record keeping!!  Right now I am 18 weeks pregnant and all is well, as of Monday.  Everyone keeps asking me if I feel like I'm over the hurdle.  Pretty sure that I won't feel completely calm until I am holding that crying, little boy in my arms.  Though overall, I feel calm and peaceful.  The Lord has given me an overwhelming sense of well-being.  I know that no matter what happens I will make it with His help and that He has it all planned out!!  Monday I will have another ultrasound to check heartbeat and then the following Monday will be the big anatomy ultrasound!  Keep praying that all goes well!!
One another note, we are almost done with school.  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I told the kids last week that we had about 5 weeks of school left and they have started doing extra work every day trying to get done sooner.  With all of their hard work, I am pretty sure that by the end of next week all they will have left is math and their online history course!!!
