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.

Weekend "Fun" at the Rental

We spent the weekend at our rental house, clearing and cleaning. I'm not sure what to think when people leave their garbage under the deck and in the edge of the woods. We did clean lots and lots of yuckyness, but thankfully they didn't damage the house, which was a legitimate concern! The kids were helpful and Elijah had a blast. Here he is playing peek-a-boo with the camera.

The girls ran and played while the bigger kids helped work.

Here's the little crew on Sub lunch break. Everyone, except Tori, loves subs, so Tori had a nasty hot-dog.

Other than the cleaning, my only accomplishment for the weekend was doing Julia's hair. Here she is asleep at the counter, poor girl.

We still have a few more hours of cleaning, then a hideous pink room to paint, then carpets to clean; then we have friends moving in for a few months while they build a house. It will be a refreshing change to have someone actually pay rent!
