Even in the little things ...

Isn't it great to know that God is caring about EVERY thing in our lives, even the little things?!?!?! I am constantly amazed at how GOOD He is! It should no longer come as any surprise how well He takes care of us ... but then again, maybe it is good that is still surprises me!

So, the other day I was in a panic - the babies were scheduled to be born on the same day that Hattie was scheduled to start school. What do we do? Do we make Hattie miss her first day of school? Do one of us miss the babies births? Do we miss Hattie's 1st day and let someone else take her? Every option seemed UNTHINKABLE!! I cried, worried, pondered and brainstormed - all to no avail... Then, I prayed. I just gave it up to God and let Him do the thinking... I asked Him to somehow work it all out or give us an answer.... SHOCKER - He came through!

I talked to the transportation dept of the schhol district, as they were confirming our address and stuff... I asked if they knew whether Hattie was morning or afternoon (still trying to do the thinking, I thought I could possibly figure out a way to be at both!!). She told me afternoons, starting September 6Th!!!!! What! I must have heard wrong. Nope, her class starts a day later than everyone else!

So, PRAISE GOD!!! We get to be at both - The birth AND Hattie's first day of school...... Have I mentioned God's abundance lately?!?!?!

September 5th

So, we had a doctor's appointment yesterday with Kim - everything is going very well. It is a textbook pregnancy and an AMAZING pregnancy for twins!! At least that is what the doctor said. So, there was a misunderstanding and they did NOT do the amnio as we thought they would.... BUT - we do have a plan.....
On September 4th we will do an amnio test and if the results are good - lungs strong and mature etc.. - they will do a c-section on the 5th. Now, she could go into labor before that, the amnio could START labor or the results could say to wait, but barring any of that the babies will be getting born on September 5th!!! YAY - exciting! The reason we are waiting so long is that the birthfather - Kim's boyfriend - had to ask for the time off in advance and his boss is going on vacation etc..... But there ya go! Babies - Sept. 5, 2007!!!
The tough part of this whole thing is that Hattie's first day of school is scheduled to be, yep, September 5!!!! OOOOOOOHHHHHH, what to do?!?!!? We are trying to get in touch with someone at the school and make some decisions - PLEASE pray that we do what is best for EVERYONE!!! We REALLY want Hattie to NOT be slighted in anyway and we want her to feel loved and special and treasured - because she is! So, any advice in how to do that and be new parents and ..... HELP!!!!
Well, now that I have had my mini meltdown of the day, I can go back to trusting God. He will work it all out and give us the words and love for Hattie and the new baby(ies) and, yes, each other!!! Isn't it awesome how he provides for all of our needs..... aaaahhhh, sweet abundance
