Vacation and the Coming Week June 14, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — shaefferfamily @ 9:33 pm


Well, we had a WONDERFUL time on our “pre-baby” vacation. We went to Perdido Key, Florida for a week. We stayed in a nice condo on the beach and spent the days relaxing by the pool or on the beach. I don’t much care for getting in the ocean, especially this time because there were quite a few Jellyfish right at the shore. However, I did get in with Michael one day, I just refused to get off of my float the whole time. 🙂 We went to the Foley outlet mall one day and we ate at Lamberts twice (I LOVE that place). We didn’t take hardly any pictures. We are both really bad a remembering the camera and I always miss good photo opportunities. I know I’m going to have to get much better at this after the baby comes. We made many memories on this “last” vacation. Because let’s face it that was probably the last time we will go on a vacation just the 2 of us for a long time once the baby comes.


Speaking of the baby coming this week has been so exciting. This little thing is extremely active. It’s fun feeling the baby move several times a day. It is the most amazing feeling. Every time it happens it surprises me and I giggle. Every time I feel it I am just reminded to praise the Lord for this miracle he has given us. I had thought for so long that it would never happen, so each time I feel it I feel like God is reminding me that He is in control and He has a perfect plan and timing for ALL THINGS!!! We get to go Friday for our ultrasound. PLEASE pray that the baby is not shy. I am DYING to know if it’s a boy or a girl. According to all of the old wives tales I have read all signs point to it being a boy. But I honestly have NO CLUE. We have however picked out a boy name finally!!! I’ll share it on Friday if it ends up being a boy.


The other thing going on this week is us finding a place to live. We only have 2 weeks left in our apartment. We’re going to find a place hopefully Wednesday. Then next week Michael’s mom is coming in town to help me pack and clean and then get settled in our new apartment (wherever that may be). I’m so thankful that she is coming. This is a really emotional time for me. Obviously the hormones but also the fact that we are picking up everything and moving, having no idea how long we will be there, and just longing for Michael to get a job soon. Although I am emotional about all of this I know God is in control and that he has a perfect plan, place, and time for our full-time ministry to begin.

Well, that’s all of my updates for now. I will post on Friday with the news!! 🙂
