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.

Here's some snap shots from yesterday and today.

The slobber patrol - Lincoln and Toby (as in Abraham Lincoln and Toby Mac if you were wondering; the perfect combination I think.)

Charlie (who's just Charlie if you ask me) with Julia and her friend, Rebecca.

At lunch I got out supplies to make mass grilled cheese sandwiches. I turned around to Elijah helping himself to a bite of cheese.

After lunch, Elijah wanted to play "Baby Li-li." The game consists of his sisters wrapping him in a blanket and carrying him around like a new-born. He generally likes to have a pacifier, but today it was missing. He plays nap in his crib and we all make a fuss about the "new baby." (We used to have a pink pacifier and he would specify playing baby boy or baby girl, but it's been missing even longer than the blue one.)

On Wednesdays, I make four trips to homeschool co-op classes; each trip is only about 10 minutes round trip thankfully. The last one, I sent James out with a bag of garbage and came home to Tori wearing this while she waited for him in the drizzle. Makes perfect sense to detach the hat to keep her head dry, but then tuck her arms in her shirt to keep warm.
Crazy kids.

It finally seems to be turning cooler; I'm actually going to dig some jeans out for Julia and Elijah to wear to church tonight.
