So... You Wanna Know What's Up?

The short of it goes something like this:

We're expecting a baby.
John's working in Minnesota.
The boys and I are 'house-sitting' at a little slice of heaven in the Black Hills.
We're house hunting.
I *need* (want?) a nest, again. Love my community here, my support. Invaluable, especially now.
Still have the bus, though it is (and has been for a long time) for sale.
We'll still travel, not sure how that'll look yet.
The boys are crazy as ever.
I'm regaining my sanity. ;)
The bump is growing slightly and giving me occassional thumps to remind me of the new life growing inside me. Nearly 5 months along now.
I'm still in shock that we are, indeed, having another baby.
The boys are thrilled, thrilled that they'll be having a new baby to love.
I have to laugh at myself for thinking I had it all figured out, all my big plans! What a nice little reminder that I am *so* not in charge!

Hoping your life is just as crazy, wonderful, unpredictable and peaceful as ours!

Aaahhh Karen, life is good. It all unfolds, sometimes unexpectedly, but how lucky this little one is to be coming into such a wonderful, supportive, loving, ROCKIN' family! Love you girl!
