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.

Simple Task

My simple idea was for Moriah to make cookies while I made bread to give to the Wednesday night teachers at church. Moriah got off easy as Elijah was my "helper."

First we had to grind the wheat. Elijah played in it like a sandbox and sampled a bit.

Once it became flour, he sampled that as well.

Once we washed his hands, he turned to water play.

All the sampling and washing made him thirsty and he has seen the cat drink from the sink, so he gave it a try.

That turned into a really fun game as well.

At some point, he saw the camera and gave me a "cheese."

Even routine tasks can be fun if you have a "helping buddy."
