My NEW baby!

I got a really nice surprise yesterday at the OBGYN when my Dr. said he was going to do an ultrasound! So here is the first picture of baby Laster #2. I know... it doesn't look like much, does it? The baby is between the two + signs. Teeny tiny thing, but it was very encouraging to be able to see the heartbeat! I was joking with Thomas, "Awww, honey. It looks like you!" And he was like, "What? A peanut head?" Oh yes, sweety, please do keep that sense of humor for those nights when the baby wakes us up at 2AM!!

My baby's first day.....

of school!!!

Ok, so it's NOT Kindergarten, but it was definitely a big deal! We have decided to Homeschool and Monday was Braden's very first day of Preschool Co-op. It's just one day a week and lasts from 9 to 12:30. I had a TERRIBLE time leaving him...he had a blast! He cried when we had to leave. At home, he is learning his letters and how to write his name. He's very interested in how to spell things. And I usually spend most of the day answering questions about one thing or another. I'm so proud of my smart little boy!

A close call?

This is the view from our back deck on Tuesday. A freak storm that hit the night before the Hurricane Katrina storm was to get to us caused major flooding. This photo is not the water at it's peak! A couple of hours after that, it covered the road and we were literally trapped in our neighborhood! We were actually afraid that it might get up high enough to get to our house. We were just not sure what to expect at this point...after all, we thought this itself was impossible. After a LOT of praying that night, we woke up the next morning to find the water receded drastically! It's definitely an event I won't soon forget! I'm just glad we aren't dealing with what is going on in New Orleans at the moment. We have a lot of blessings in our lives and this makes me quite mindful of them.
