we've been insanely busy recently. we took a trip to new hampshire to celebrate our birthdays and see some good friends (more on that later) and have been driving the 45 or so miles back and forth to guilford last week and this week to help out at another community. this accounts for a large part of the reasons i havent been blogging. i have to use my berry as a modem and service here is spotty as we are out in the middle of nowhere (kinda).
the community here is beautiful and we've enjoyed our time here. we will back again next week too. there is a lot of wildlife on the grounds (they own several acres including a huge pond for fishing) so the cats have really enjoyed sitting in the windows and watching the birds and squirrels. rumpy tried to jump through the window to get at a particularly saucy squirrel. thankfully he just scared himself and didnt break the glass. the cats travel well (thankfully) but are starting to get even more annoyed by the sight o the carrier and their leashes than they used to.
we've been to three of our four birthing classes and have one more on monday. we will finally get to tour the maternity ward of the hospital where this little guy will get himself born! only four weeks and six days (or so, but who's counting?) to go! very weird to think that in a little over a month we will be parents. we are getting close to ready for him as far as having all the stuff we want or need (for the first few weeks anyway) but i dont think there is any way to become completely mentally ready, no matter how many classes we go to or books we read. welcome to parenthood, right?
when we are back in groton this weekend i plan to post some pictures and another post or two about what we've been up to lately. see you all then!
