Robbins' Weekend in Review...

(the traditional heart on the belly picture...presh!)

Hey Kanakuk Friends,
Well, how was the weekend? I realize it's Tuesday, but I'm not a great Monday blogger. I did want to inform that in these last 10 weeks of preggo-ness a bigger portion of my posts will probably be even more random than before with much about Shay and I embarking on parenthood very soon. I hope no one gets annoyed. I promise to do my best to stay hip & trendy with you teenage girls!

So the weekend was very eventful. We had an 8 hour prepared childbirth class. Girls, do you want to know what I took away from those 8 hours...
1. God made my body ready and able for childbirth.
2. That's why Doctors and nurses are doctors and nurses b/c if something goes wrong they will talk us through it.

It was very educational. I at one point must confess I was playing solitaire on my phone and Shay was on his phone on ESPN.com. Hysterical!

Hope you all had a great weekend. I think some of you are starting to have Homecoming at school. Quick tip: sweet girl, if no one asks you to the dance, it's OKAY. I know it feels like it's not but you will be okay. I never got asked to a dance * Side note: I asked both of my prom dates to prom :(. You will be okay and God is writing your journey...hang in there! Ask a great guy friend or go with some girlfriends! Have a great Tuesday!

Be awesome & Love Jesus,

Some more pics from the weekend:

(This is the B.O.B stroller I got from K2 Term 1 staff girls...THANK YOU GIRLS!) (I washed some of the preemie, newborn, and 0-3 month clothes we have gotten to have some ready for November for Baby Girl Robbins.)(Here is the Pack-n-Play Term 3 K2 staff girls got Shay and I for our newest member! I love it! The print are my fav colors and perfect for girls and boys so we can use for many many years to come!)

Friday is here...

Hey friends,
Well, it's Friday! Woohoo! I hope that your week has been so great and full of the Lord's grace. Shay and I are headed to the Branson Pirate Homecoming game tonight to watch a ton of Kanakuk kiddos beat...well, I actually don't know who we are hopefully beating.

The weekend is full of excitement as Shay and I have an 8 hour class tomorrow (he'll kill me for blogging this) for a Prepared Parenthood class. All things labor, delivery locations, rooms, birth plans (people have plans...what in the world?). I am sure our marriage will grow stronger b/c of the laughter we will share tomorrow. It's going to be hysterical!

Have great weekends! I'll try and have pictures of the weekend festivities.

Be awesome & love Jesus,

Thoughts of the Poster Clueless Future Mom...

Well, I must admit that my blogging ideas have not flowed quite as freely as they once did...could be hormonal preggo emotionsor just normal emotions of a week where clinging to God's Holy Word has never been more evident. I think pregnancy has been somewhat smooth as far as hormonal rollercoaster riding for all those around me...but I guess Shay would be the best answer for that question. Anyways, tomorrow we have our next baby appointment for "Baby Girl Robbins."Yes, it's true we still have no name...are we just awful parents? It just seems like the biggest responsibility (as of now of course) of picking a name...what if I pick one and then the next day I hear one that's better...or what if we have her and right when she comes out the name just doesn't fit?? Oh, goodness, the thoughts of a new clueless mom! Anyways, so she is still nameless as of now. My co-small group leader and our 7th/8th grade girls have given her a temporary name...Agnus. Hysterical! (please leave no comments if you name is Agnus...it's great for you! Go girl!) So anyways, tomorrow Shay and I will head to our precious doctor to have our next check up. I am pretty sure it is a routine check and from my belly growth and her movement I think all is well. In light of life's ups and downs...I cannot tell you how much this baby has steadied my heart in His Word, His love, and His sovereignty. I will TRY and take some belly pics soon...ya'll, you know it's somewhat awkward when you see people's preggo belly so I try and and avoid too many but girls it has grown since summer...like exponentially! Ya'll would just laugh at me if you saw me! Oh, side note, I am obsessed with maternity clothes. I love maternity pants...they are my fav! I want to keep wearing them after I have her, like forever!

Hope the day is filled with reminders of God's love for you! (this post is so random...welcome to my preggo mind girls! So random! Hope maybe it brings a little laughter to ya!)

Be awesome & love Jesus,

Goodness, I cannot tell you how excited I am to kick-off being back to the blogging world! Oh, how I've missed it. All you K2 girls...HOW ARE YOU? I pray each of you have had a great start to your year. It, in all honesty, has taken me a bit to get back into the routine of my job for the non-summer months. Here is some things that I've been up to since K2 ended: vacation with my amazing husband, belly grew (due to preggo-ness, in case you read that and don't understand), shopped at Target for more plastic bins for our loveshack (that's what I call our house), worked, prayed with my friends that work full time with me, meetings, watching lots of ESPN, belly grew some more, and ran a 5k for K-Life.

So enough about life after kamp...I wanted to take a chance to kick-off my blog for the year by sort of casting vision for the blog. It's not very deep or thought provoking. I will do my best to every once in a while throw that in. For the most part it is for K2 girl kampers, K2 girl parents, and K2 girl staff to stay connected. A lot of the posts will be fun, joyful, kamp memories, or completely random. I don't like to debate, will share my opinion (which prayerfully is based on God's Word), and let you into our lives at Kanakuk full-time so that you know my heart to encourage teenage girls in this world to be godly, mighty women of the Lord. So I just say all that to say I love comments, if they are nice or constructive. I love blogging and will try to do every 2-3 days. So enjoy, don't think too hard, and be encouraged!

This year my emails have a new "ending." My husband last year started coining this phrase that he said all the time, "Just be Awesome." He would reply with this statement and it always made me laugh and smile. So this summer it started to roll off my tongue and I added the basic summation of what I want to do each day...BE AWESOME AND LOVE JESUS. That's my motto this year and you will see the phrase a lot.

* Be Awesome: basically to be awesome means you are living by the fruit of the Spirit. That's my theological statement of belief (jk, please don't comment, I'm just being silly :)
* Love Jesus: If we are loving Jesus we are loving people...or at least in a perfect world that's how we as followers of Christ should be living. If we know of the love of Christ in our own heart then love for others should be overflowing!

So K2 friends: Be awesome and Love Jesus! I could run in political races with that campaign slogan...doubt I would win!

Be awesome & love Jesus,
