Once upon a time....

Flash back to 1999, we were a family of four. Happy in our new roomy house and comfortable in our ways. A few years later, the Lord blessed us with an additional little package, little boy #3. Now we were a family of five and sure that would be the end. As time moved on, so did we. The Lord used the time that passed to open our eyes to His will. Several years ago, Bob and I individually heard the call to adoption. It has been a long "pregnancy", but during this incubation time, the Lord has brought us to where He wants us to be. Spring 2010, we traveled to Ethiopia where two little angels were waiting for the Lord's timing - to become our children. Now we are home and can't imagine life any differently! What a blessing to be in His will.

Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

Crazy Times!

Ok ~ we are crazy, but taking the kids to the wonderful, wild world of Silver Dollar City just seemed like a great way to start Spring!  We teamed up with our cousins, Will and Sam and Uncle Bill and Aunt Jenn.  We had a fantabulous time!  Sure it rained and we were extremely over-stimulated, but it was fun.  The kids loved the rides and swimming at the hotel was truly exhilarating!  Once we convinced Nardos that going face-first in the pool water without holding your breath is a BAD idea, the rest was a blast!
