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.

Day Trip

We took a last minute day trip to the mountains on Sunday. It was cold and rainy on the way up, but became clear and warmer like the weather promised. Selah and Bella both love to go bye-bye and since we left early, they both slept all the way home in the afternoon.

We stopped for a picnic at a park; Bella can pump her legs on the swing - that seems pretty brilliant to me for not quite three!

They did have two swings at the transition home in Ethiopia, so Selah is an old pro.

Elijah was the only one that wanted to stop for a quick picture.

I assure you that they were excited about a picnic, but from the looks of this picture, you would have thought we were in line for shots instead. I guess that's why you are supposed to tell kids to say cheese.

Decent picture or not, we had a nice "very mini vacation".

Now I'm on to cleaning out the school room and the office...those are pictures you wouldn't want to see!
