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.

First Day of School

We had a pretty good first day of school. I think we only did a bit over half of our normal work-load and it took most of the day, but that's a continual problem I have. I really need another me, (but maybe one that has more patience and enjoys mindless drills more.) It was also a really cool, rainy day which was perfect for sitting by the open windows hitting the books.

Tori and Julia did really well, only once did Julia sigh and comment how tough Kindergarten is. Tori was quick to sympathize because she is a seasoned first grader this year.

I purchased three new bookcases from Border's bookstore that is going out of business. They are going to relieve some congestion in my current bookshelves and allow me to reorganize. I guess that will have to be my weekend project.

  1. We used HWOT too! Two of our physical therapists recommended it. It was actually written by a PT. Waid (blind) loves putting together the wood letters.
