I'm back!

Okay, okay...so my track record for keeping up with our blog is not off to a very good start. But now that things have settled down a bit (at least for me) I think I'll be able to do better! We moved to our new little home in Sylva, NC exactly one month ago. Spencer has been in school now for a week, and the pattern in his life is this: get up, eat breakfast, study, go to class, eat lunch, more class, study with classmates, come home, eat supper, study, then sleep. He's a trooper - he is really working hard to get off to a good start in PT school.

I am spending my days running errands, reading, cleaning, and trying to look for a part-time job or work that I can do from home. I've made a few contacts in some area schools and am waiting to hear about some possible positions that will open up soon. We are praying about what the Lord has for me to do to help provide an income and yet try to be at home as much as possible when little Claire Alyse arrives.

Speaking of Baby Shugart, she has grown in size and strength lately! I think some days she is trying to bust out of my belly a little early! She definitely has her father's "I can't sit still for more than five minutes" syndrome! Now that I am in my third trimester, I will be going to the doctor every 2-3 weeks. So far everything has been perfectly normal, praise to the Lord!


Here is Claire's daddy, working hard to put her crib together. Now that we are only eleven weeks from her due date, it's time to start preparing the nursery!









And here is the "finished" product...at least for now. Pink and green it is for little Miss Claire!
