I've learned that apples in New Hampshire taste really good. Especially if you pick them yourself.

I've learned that when everything seems different, new, strange, and out of control the best thing I can do is smile and be a Mommy. If I make it through a day without rolling my eyes at my kids, I've had a good day.

I've learned that with your third pregnancy you show really, really soon. Like, at six weeks. Yikes. And now, almost six months pregnant I am very obviously with child.

Seriously, my belly is huge.

(Pictures coming soon, I just have to decide where I want to have them taken. A field? A construcion site? By an old barn? Any thoughts...?)

I've learned that the United States of America is a very beautiful country, everywhere I look I'm surrounded by pretty things. It can be overwhelming at times and I have to say I miss searching for beauty through my camera lense.

I've learned that Brian's extended family is great and have really enjoyed getting to know his cousins/aunts/uncles more.

I've learned that Thanksgiving is the best time of year to watch Food Network. It sends me running to the kitchen searching for something, anything, seasoned with sage, thyme and butter.

I've been reminded once again of the wonderful support team we have back here in the US. So many people are praying for us and it's good to know we're not alone.

The things I'm learning have been very pleasant.

Except for one thing...

Last night, I learned there is a mouse that roams my kitchen counters.

I don't like that at all.

Somehow I've been missing your posts, maybe I have not been keeping up with my google reader.

I'd love to see some pictures of you pregnant again. Maybe in your house.

I'm jealous you have Food Network. We don't have cable. . . .

I think pregnancy pictures at a construction site would be so cool! "Under Construction"...
