There were so many of us there and it was just so nice to hang out with each other and become better friends. It's always a treat to let the kids play with so many friends, too.

I can't wait to find out what this baby is going to be so I can get rid of the boxes and boxes of baby clothes I still have. That will help tremendously with storage space! I am 15 weeks along and all is going pretty well. I have been nauseous since the beginning and it hasn't let up yet, but I didn't expect any different since it's been the same with all my pregnancies. The only difference that I can tell so far is with the girls I didn't feel pregnant one bit when it was time to take that test. With this one and with Brandon I felt it from the beginning...hey, I gotta have some hope this is a boy, right? :) LOL. I'll try to post a pic of my belly (definitely there now!) soon.
I am almost finished with school supplies shopping--woohoo! The kids are so excited to go meet their new teachers for this year next week. I am looking forward to it, too. Brandon is going to have the same teacher he did last year and that is truly a blessing for him and me. She helped us through a lot with the ADHD diagnosis and just helping him along any way she could (like noticing him squinting at the board--hence, the new glasses last spring. :) I also look forward to a new school year and being able to go help the teachers during the day. I really love doing that and getting to know the people around the school. I will only have Carli home during the day this year until Jan/Feb so that will be nice, too!
I never blogged about the kids' last day of school last spring. They did awesome and got some great awards! Here are a few pictures:
Kate and her awesome teacher, Mr. Garner. She adored him!
We have been spending time at the pool and enjoying the cool (sort of) water in spite of the hot weather we have been having! It has been crazy how hot and horrible it has been. I am so looking forward to cool weather!
I guess the big news is that I have a new calling. I was the Activity Days leader, but am now the new Primary President. EEK! I am excited, but a bit overwhelmed and nervous about making sure everything gets done and done right. Any helpful websites, suggestions, advice--I'll take it! :)

My mother-in-law, Sandy, is my director in MK so I get to spend those days with her. One of Ben's cousins, Jan, is in MK, too, and it's so great to make this a family affair. It is totally a blast! We learned about new products coming out (always fabulous, top-of-the-line, on-trend products), new programs and tools that only make being a beauty consultant easier and more fun than ever. Seriously, what better job is there than getting girl time any time you want? :)
Our first night we had our National area awards night. The theme was the 50s so we dressed up for the occasion. (Sandy and Nancy in the back, Jan and me sitting)
After the awards night with our National Director, Mary Cane.We went out to El Fenix for dinner one night. YUM! They were totally gung-ho Mary Kay. The servers were all wearing pink ties and there were pink twinkle lights and little welcome cards on the tables.
Jan, Nancy, and me sitting outside the Hyatt.
Seminar awards night. Everyone goes all out on this night! It's Miss America, a broadway show, and a big party all rolled into one. Such a blast to get all dolled up.
I have to say I am glad to be part of this company. They are so supportive of the sales force and go all out to make us feel special.
