Thanks everyone for your input!

Like one commenter said, if you're hesitating, you have your answer - I think that's some serious wisdom there. I'd have spent the week being really nervous about the whole thing, second guessing myself the whole way.

I've decided to go with another Jump5 song, Spinnin Around (you can find it on youtube). It's much better in terms of "not a dating song" so right away I'm happy.

I'll let you know if I survive next week. Last time I did this I didn't know I was already pregnant (just a few weeks) so I didn't feel particularly exhausted. Although I was pondering the reason why I hadn't lost any weight (I figured 10 hours of intense exercise deserved the slightly weight loss). Haha, and now I know...

I'm already thinking through the week - I won't want to do a lot of jump and certainly not handstands and cartwheels like last time. Sorry - placental abruption and I are not friends! :)

*off to choreograph... or clean... both need doing with equal necessity*


  1. I didn't comment before...
    didn't take the time to listen to the songs. But at least it seems you had plenty of help.

    Take it easy... take care of you & that baby.

    I know I resemble a 'mother hen'... or maybe an 'old nag'. Ü


  2. I'm so glad. I know that the feeling of peace & contentment are totally outweighing the extra work.

    Have a great time w/ the VBS.

  3. Congrats on the pregnancy!
    I am glad that you have chosen not to use that song. I am not religious but taught in a religious school and there is no way, no how that I would have been able to use that song with my students. The lyrics can be interpreted to be about God and a relationship with Him (or Jesus) but really, the people singing it are not thinking about God or Jesus are they?
    Good luck with finding some appropriate quickly
    I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your new babe, you make such beautiful children :D

  4. Just found your blog. It's beautiful....your family is beautiful.
    I'll be back.
    Take care!!

  5. Hi Susie. My name is Lydia. I'm Rae's (from Tennessee) cousin. I just read your story and I know Rachel has been telling us about you all. I never heard the full story about when Joshua went to be with Jesus. I just read your beautiful words and wanted to get in touch with you somehow. My little man has a pretty incredible story of his own. Its very long, but he went to be with Jesus on July 5th, 2008. It has been 4 months in a couple of hours. He was also sleeping between us. Right in my arms. I wanted to put my email in here so you could contact me if you had some time. I would love to talk with you. Our email is I'd love to hear from you if you have a chance soon. We also have a little girl who will be three in November and number three is also on the way for us. I'm due May 1st, 2009.I'd love to hear from you!
