30 by 30 update

Today is the 30th and its been awhile since I've posted about my list of
30 things I want to do before I turn 30 so I thought I'd do a little update. Here are the goals that I've been able to check off of my list lately:

1. Take a "real" vacation with my husband! Not just to the family lakehouse (though it is nice, It is not the same as really getting away together - ALONE!). ;-) - Isaac and I went to Wisconsin together in July. While I would certainly like to do more trips together (longer ones), I definitely count this one as a "real" vacation. Blogged about HERE.

2. I want to go to one (and only one) of the following: Colts game, Pacers game OR the
Indy 500.... Those are huge Indianapolis things to do and I've lived here my whole life and not done any of them! * Changed to sporting event with hubby. So that includes the Cubbies. - so I ammended this one a little from the original form but its my list and I can do what I want, right? Anyway - Isaac and I went to a Cubs - Reds game in Cincy in August. It was great! Blogged about HERE.

5. Go on a scrapbooking retreat with a group of my
Scrappin' Sisters! - This one totally happened! And it was a good time! Right girls?!? Blogged about HERE.

11. I know this sounds lame but... I want to own a minivan. It is hard having two kids in car seats in a small sedan! It'd be nice to have my siblings be able to ride with us instead of having to drive separate cars! - We were blessed to be able to buy a used minivan from some friends at church for much less than we had anticipated paying for a van. We are lovin' it! Blogged about HERE.

18. Begin home-schooling my boys. I was home-schooled and while I think there are many advantages to doing it… I’m a little intimidated. I want to get organized enough to do it well. - I finally chose a pre-school curriculum and began using Heart of Dakota with Nate this week. So far so good!

19. Decide if we are going to have more kids. When we got married I wanted four kids and Isaac wanted two. Well… after having one via unexpected c-section, and one vbac at home…one who tries my patience daily and the other who pulls at my heartstrings constantly… I’m not sure if I can handle any more kids. - Well, whether I can handle it or not... God made the decision for us and baby #3 is on the way! We are due around the beginning of May. While this wasn't exactly "planned", we are very excited and hopeful about this new addition to our family. Pictured is a baby at around 9-10wks - which is about how far along we are. What a miracle!!
