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.

Basment Progress

While I've been working upstairs, JD has made huge progress downstairs. Of course, none of it would have been possible without his little helper and the fine set of orange, plastic tools he got for Christmas!
This is all going to be future family room. The far end will house the TV and seating and the closer end will have additional seating around the wood-burning stove. I'm hoping a big round oak table that I've been storing in the barn will also fit for games and puzzles. It's a cozy thought to play board games by a roaring fire in the winter.

To prepare for phase two of the ceiling, the playroom, we moved the TV and couches over to their new home. It is rather cramped, since the left couch is sitting in front of huge carpet rolls instead of the wall, but that is only temporary.

For now the pool table will remain here; the game room isn't until phase three and it is currently filled with ceiling tile boxes, solar panels and lots and lots of tools.

Today I'm heading back to Ikea after church to swap the two little cubes that I bought; they were labeled black and were white upon opening. JD also left the racks on top of the van just in case there are treasures to be found in the scratch and dent section!
