Happenings at the Hawkins: 24 Weeks

I do little updates here and there but today I decided to let everyone in on all the details happening in our home. There's so much going on and I love reading about everyone else so here goes.
***For those of who don't know, Zach left the architectural sheet metal business in August to free up time to finish his degree...YAY! The way things are going now he'll be in cap and gown April 2011. Boy howdy I can't wait. He's now working with Alpine School District doing a job he honestly hates...good motivation eh?
*I'm still working at the law office and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere. It's a good job for a pregnant college student. I usually finish all my homework at work so when I get home I can relax and get house chores done (if they get done:)
***We still have our black lab puppy who has now transformed into a full blown monster! He's huge. We knew when we bought him his was a mix of some sort but we figured he had a little border collie in him or something....not the case. We now believe that there must be a great dane in is pedigree. Zach and Bruce now have a relationship stronger than lassie and ...bobby was it? It's fun to watch how attached Zach is to our little mutt. I am sure going to be outnumbered when canyon shows up!
***School has been interesting for both of us this semester. Zach is passing his drafting classes with flying colors. He absolutely loves them and does homework weeks in advance because he just can't get enough. He's not so in love with his Biology class but he's getting by. I love my Calculus 3 class even though it makes my brain hurt. The mathematics is so fun once you figure it out....the figuring out is the problem. My physics class is just russian professor sure makes things difficult. My favorite class this semester is Humanities....hmmmmm...and thats coming from a math major...rethinking might not be such a bad idea.
***My parents came out to visit a couple of weeks ago and they've been adding to our baby preparedness stash. We now own a pack and play, a bouncy play table, a bouncer, and NYPD onsie (thanks mom!) socks and some other clothing items. Thanks to them we're saving lots of moola.

Updates on Baby Canyon!
***Canyon is a kicking, punching and squirming all over the place! I can't help but smile every time I feel the little guy. We are so anxious to meet him, the months will fly by I'm sure.
*** Canyon was still breach at our last appointment but my doctor thinks there's a chance he'll turn...I mean he has a lot of time to so chances are good:) Our next appointment is the beginning of November and we'll be signing up for our birthing classes then. Things are going so well and all the morning sickness is pretty much gone (WOOT WOOT)
Till next time!!!

First of all, it's Timmy. Not Bobby. Second, I LOVE humanities stuff! Obviously. And I cannot believe how much Canyon is growing. Thanks for the update! I cannot wait to add to your baby stash too.

How do you do your heading? It looks great! What is zach doing for the Alpine school district? Just wondering since that's where my kids are. Can't wait to meet Canyon!
