UpDate


So my phone has begun ringing an unusual amount past few days... but Not yet! as in No baby yet.. and right now this is a very very good thing. I'm holding my breath for the next 3 days and crossing my legs. Devin began his 3 days of tests this morning. On Monday he was informed that his school policy changed and he was required to take the GRE .. pronto to if he wanted to do a concurrent master's degree with his chiropractic degree. Considering the master's program was almost the whole reason he chose this school(that and prayer).... he decided that there really wasn't a choice. So he has been spending the last month cramming for National Boards that take place Friday and Saturday, and was informed then Thursday morning before boards was his only chance go take the GRE. Now maybe I'm wrong but the GRE always seemed like a big deal to me.. I watched my roomates pay for classes on how to help them score well on the GRE and then prepare for weeks. Am I wrong? So this stressed me out. Devin in typical Devin fashion didn't miss a beat said: "I'll just do what I can do" so he said a prayer... and went this morning and winged it.. He did remarkably well. Actually very well! All last night when he was still studying for BOARDS and NOT the GRE, I kept watching him totally stressing for him and he just kept very calm and even seemed happy and made dinner for us. I finally said "Devin you realize that you COULD fail the GRE right?" He paused for only a second and said "Yes of course Amie." And went on his merry way. Devin has made me eat more words more than any human being on the earth. Anyway after Devin took the GRE this morning he drove from the test, straight to the library and will be there all day studying for boards of course, until 6:00 at least, that is when his first soccer practice starts. He will be coaching Cache and a team of 3 year old aspiring soccer players. Cache and I went soccer shoe shopping this morning, and found the perfect pair. Actually they are the exact pair of shoes he got last fall, that he loved so much he wore holes through the toes and still wore them until I hid them a few months ago.. We just got a bigger size. He was so excited carrying them around the store.. even more fun was having him try on different shoes and Cache had to test them out by "doing oympics" (Olympics) He would get down like he was in the starting blocks and have me or the shoe department lady say "ready, set, GO!" and then he would run the isle up and down..It was probably a good thing we went in the morning, so we were usually the only ones in the store or shoe department. Well so anyway Devin has one day of testing down and two FULL days to conquer. Janie is getting here tonight(my mother in law) so that will be such a relief, to know if something down happen, she will be here! Not to mention some adult company while Devin is in studying ect. I in the mean time am having such a hard time wanting to get all this stuff done before company and the baby comes like hanging curtains, cleaning, grocery shopping and I REALLY want to mow that lawn... cleaning out the fridge would be really nice too and I haven't gone visiting teaching this month..but last night I vacuumed all the cars.. I just couldn't stand it anymore and it made Devin really nervous,, he kept saying in this weird accent: "Amie is is written in the Bible that you shall now go into labor before Sunday." So that's that! Here are a couple fun recent pictures of life with Cache.

I want to have a kid EXACTLY LIKE CACHE!!!!!!! He is such a stud, just like Ben said. I agree with what you said the other day about Claire (she being a kid you could love as your own and not get annoyed with, etc.) Well, that's how I feel about Cache. Love that kid! And way to go Devin! Good luck the next 2 days. And you too Amie, good luck. Love you guys!

Good Luck Devin! We are praying for you and praying that the baby will wait till all your exams are over. I'm so excited to come next week. I hope the baby comes before I get there so Janie can see her before she leaves.

Cache grandma loves you! You little cutie!

So love your pictures! Tessa saw the presents for you and said 'oooh, I hope she has a girl!' I said yes and she got so excited that I assume she thinks you'll give us your baby. We just can't get enough girls!
