* I still haven’t renewed my blog upgrade yet, so this post will not have pictures. Hopefully I can renew it by my next posting.

I’m 19 weeks along now (almost halfway) and I’m finally starting to feel good. I’m also looking more pregnant now too. I definitely have a more round bump since week 16.

Baby is also busily kicking away in there, which I’ve been feeling since a little before week 15, but now I am not doubting what I feel really is baby. I feel him/her kicking and moving a lot when I sit down in the morning and plan our homeschool day and also a lot in the evening when we read or watch a movie.

Early May is when we are supposed to have our second ultrasound and hopefully then we can find out the gender because I am totally unprepared for a boy. If it’s a boy, we will definitely have some shopping and name hunting do.

Autumn and Kesa have been busy still with Rainbow Loom which is the handwork part of their homeschool. Kesa (aka “Little Loomer”) has wanted to start a YouTube channel of her own for a while now and so we filmed her first video on Sunday. She is actually really good! And making things on the Rainbow Loom is not easy! It’s nice that they make their own toys and will have them to show to their kids someday.

Our weather here in Manitoba is ridiculous! We were at a feel of -21 the other day and it is now the middle of April! To go for a walk you would not only need a hat and mitts, but a scarf too because the wind would bite so bad! It has been nice out yesterday and today, with the sun shining and the snow melting, so hopefully we will get our official spring soon.

Serafina was sick last week and we had a challenging week with her especially clothing-wise, but now she is feeling better and much happier and is back to being a sweetie  (for now anyways). It’s so cute to see her and Kesa play together. Their latest game is where Kesa gets on all fours and Serafina rides on her back like she’s her pony.

We began reading “The Hobbit” together. Autumn also got the “Who Was J.R.R. Tolkien” book to read and add to her collection of “Who Was” books.

Autumn finished up her block on Ancient Greece and Kesa and Autumn are both on math now. Once spring officially arrives we’ll move on to Botany and Nature Study.

This morning I just baked a batch of Blueberry Banana Muffins and the kitchen smells so good! The girls are outside playing in the sunshine and we are about to head out for a walk to check the mail.

I hope that you guys are all doing well and that spring is coming where you are! ☺
