It's been ages...

since my last post and there has been so many changes in my life that I decided to post before I leaped in the oh so busy life of a Kuhns. As all of you know, Jesse and I are finally expecting! On Tuesday I will be at 13 weeks. These last 10 weeks (since we found out) have been exhilarating. Every week we receive an update on what is happening inside me and we are just left speechless. As some of you know, we have decided to pursue a home birth. When I say "pursue", I mean that if the baby and I stay healthy, we will have the baby in our home with a midwife from San Antonio. As the new year begins, Jesse and I have decided to focus on preparing ourself physically, emotionally, and most of all spiritually to the best of our abilities for the baby's arrival. There is work to be done, but we have yet to meet a challenge too difficult.

KuGar is doing great. We have close to 100 students and we are still growing. We have been blessed with enough students to keep us running and making some money. As my maternity leave comes closer, our finances will be a bit tighter but I know God will provide.

Well this weekend is the last part of my winter break before Jesse and I go back to the real world. All I can say, is that I can get used to not going to work. I know being a parent is work, but it is very different to work for the love of a family, then it is to work for a paycheck. I look forward to my 12 weeks of maternity leave along with the sleepless nights, the poopie diapers, the crying fits, and everything else that comes with it. Some friends tell me that after 8 or 9 weeks they are ready to go back to work. Not me. No way, no how. I am using all of my maternity leave :). Starting Monday the count down to July will begin....before I get a long break to welcome the greatest miracle known to men....Life.
