Sloppy Joe

I love a good sloppy joe, my mom's recipe to be exact. I have been making them probably for half of my marriage, Andrew likes them, Ella likes them, (miracle!), and Steve.... well yesterday for the first time he told me he does NOT like them. Hahahahahahaha..... I had to think that was totally funny. I make them pretty often since they are easy and the kids will eat it and poor Steve has eaten how many sloppy joes that he does not like? good grief charlie brown. :)

almost 34 weeks

You know how if you don't have anything nice to say you shouldn't say anything at all? I think that is why I have not blogged much about this pregnancy. But I would hate to not post my excitement for another baby to join us. I am very excited to be at the hospital and get this kid out! I am praying for the patience and energy I will need to take care of 4 kids. I think I had about 3 or 4 weeks of this pregnancy where I actually felt good. But now??? ya remember, nothing nice to say. I am definitely on survival mode. I have started getting a few things ready, purchased new onsies, binkies, and stroller. I got me some jammies for the hospital. I want to take the whole family out to get the rest of the things on my list. I think the kids are all pretty excited and I think it's a good idea to involve them in the prep.

which is better, reverence or smarts?

Andrew has really the coolest primary teachers. They are so nice, laid back, fun, smart, and they love teaching primary. They have been in there for years and years. I guess at one point they got released and they got so mad that they were put back in. Anyway, they own a golf course and have told the kids that if they earn enough "reverence points" they will be able to go and have a party there. The other week Sis. Schneiter came up to me and said something to the effect of... Your son is so smart, I love having him in class. He hasn't been able to earn any reverence points but I have to give him points for knowing everything. This made me laugh. I thanked her for putting up with him. I know he is constantly talking and wanting to have fun so I'm sure he is not the best kid they've had. But at the same time I am very proud of him. He is smart. He pays attention and loves to learn the stories from the scriptures. I know that he will be blessed for it.
