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.

Restful Vacation

Elijah normally only goes to sleep for me. If we put some water rides in the backyard, I'd be able to go places at bedtime and leave him with JD. Day one at Wolf Lodge, Elijah went to sleep in the wave pool. JD eventually carried him out and removed his life-jacket and he slept and slept.

After a while he wasn't the only one asleep.

Day two, Elijah went to sleep in the lazy river. JD then had to time his raft perfectly so they didn't hit the dumping buckets. It was funny how he held on even after falling asleep.
Julia made it the first day without a nap, but day two she crawled up on Aunt Deb and was out.

She slept a few hours in the stroller amidst the noise.

After all the napping, you might think we were up late, but not so. After the Golden Corral, the little people (and the husband) were out.

Good times!
