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.

We've been busy the last few days with all of life's demands and a few extra projects. Yesterday we spent most of the day outside laying top-soil, spreading grass-seed and strawing the bare patches. Although we worked several hours, we really only made a dent in what needs to be done.

It would be more pleasant working if it felt like fall, but it doesn't - it's in the upper 80's and I'm regretting that I packed up most of the summer clothes!

I've made countless trips to homeschool co-op today and now I'm off to soccer. I'm going to hope for a better blogging day tomorrow.
