In the beginning, JD adamantly only wanted two children. I thought that four would be perfect. Once we caught God's vision of putting orphans into families, our plan was multiplied by God. We are currently blessed with 12 children; five biological, six adopted and one more waiting in Ethiopia. Our first adoption was from the U.S., the next three were from Liberia, West Africa, and our last two were from Ethiopia. We are supporting our 12th child in Ethiopia after her adoption could not pass court.

One Room Down

The kitchen is done! It can be a bit stressful to paint with lots of little people around, but that's my reality - lots of work and lots of little people. JD is plugging away installing a water tank for the geo-thermal system down-stairs, then he'll be back to the obvious finishing work in the basement. We have been pushing to finish things for a spring appraisal in hopes of closing on our final mortgage, but prices around still seem to be in a decline so we are having a appraiser friend come Tuesday to give us an idea if we are better going for it now with unfinished things or waiting a bit to finish the basement.

So, in spite of my house woes, here's the kitchen. Ignore the big newspaper recycling pile and the burnt out light-bulbs, I didn't notice them until I looked at this picture.

This is Tori and Julia hair week, so no more painting until at least next weekend.
