We went and watched Riley play soccer at the Iowa Games. His team ended up winning the gold! It was fun to watch as the Gold Medal game was full of action. As a side note 7 days after this picture was taken Riley says to me "Is Mom's name Marce or Marc (not pronounced like the boys name Mark), people call her both" That kept Ashley and I laughing for quite some time!

so this week I decided to experiment and try my own homemade version of dishwashing detergent. I LOVE it. Not only does it do just as good of a job as store bought brands, it is SOO easy to make. Here is the recipe if you are interested
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon borax
Each dishwasher load needs 2 tablespoons. I bought a big jar and probably have 50 loads on hand now! I know, i'm a geek! :-)

here is what little squirt looks like after 32 weeks. Ashley had a good doctor's appointment this week and each time they comment on how "active" our little one is. We still have NO clue if it's a boy or girl. The heartbeat counts have been anywhere from 130-162. Ashley is starting to feel a little uncomfortable and tired, but is doing really well overall. We are getting excited to meet our new son or daughter very soon. We find ourselves daydreaming about what the future will hold. Who will it look like, what personality traits it'll have and many more little fun things! Only time will tell. Please continue to pray for Ashley & squirts health as we end in the last eight weeks!
