Let the Catching up Begin . . .



 What to do after taking a year off from blogging - double post!  Happy, Happy Birthday to Leiney Grace.  Hard to believe our sweet girl is now 12 years old.  Where does the time go?
If I had to pick three words/phrases to describe Leiney Grace, I would choose servant - heart, gentle spirit, and full of joy.  Leiney Grace always wants to help others including her tired and worn out Mama.  She has the spirit I wish I had been born with and almost always, our only out of birth order adoptee, exudes joy.  What a gift she is!

Resurrecting the Blog

It's been a busy year and 3 months. Hard to believe it has been that long since I have last blogged!

The children have grown SO much. In so many ways.  Some good. Some not so good.

We moved our super sized family last summer.
I think I have finally recovered. That was brutal.
Thank God for good friends, and my dear aunt who drove down to help pack boxes and watch children!

Other than aging - we have held up pretty well!
My sweet babies born in my heart!

David misses the farm life and walking out of his front or back door to numerous deer stands.  

I don't miss commuting 45 minutes to school one way. Every Day. Sometimes twice a day.  I miss homeschooling - a little.  Loving my one on one time with Dawson - alot!
The original homegrown!  All grown up!

In these last 13 months, Thomas has become one of us.
Could not have handpicked him better myself!  Praise God.

I did it!  I resurrected the blog!  Just hope I can continue.  I love having a place to chronicle our family's life.  If I'm honest, it's more for us than anybody else.
