The Next Steps
I had a parent board meeting tonight and was honestly not sure if I had prepared an agenda for anyone.  But a core group did show up and we got some nice planning done.  We have raised $5,000 towards the security system and only need $2,000 more.  Then we are going to start raising for new playground equipment.  The Y itself is going to have wine/beer tasting in April.  Normally I would be so all over it but I'm not paying $25 a ticket to smell other people's beverages.  We also had a date night.  The hype over Juno is absolutely justified.  It was awesome.  Particularly if you are pregnant.  Except then you cry in the theater.  Okay that's not new for me but I cry more easily now.
Tomorrow is our home inspection.  We're not worried about anything turning up.  We just want to get in there to take pictures and measurements.  Can't buy furniture if you don't know how big the rooms are.  Plus we forgot some details that we are dying to refresh ourselves on.  We are so excited but what is so sweet is how excited other people are for us.
Oh and the other night we were lying on the couch watching a movie and Jeff felt the baby kick.  I don't remember being able to feel it on the outside this soon with Keegan.  Quite possibly one of the biggest things I will miss when this over.
