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.

Second First Day

I have enjoyed seeing other people's first day of school pictures. We are going to have three rounds of first days this year. Alyssa started Challenge 1 (9th grade) at Classical Conversations last week; Elijah started K there today. Elijah, who is often rather shy in new situations, really enjoyed himself. He was very excited to see Alyssa at lunch time. He chose to eat with her and her big friends over the little people in his class; I'm sure that will change over time. Bella is an observer this year; she is staying with me in Elijah's class. I'm excited to see how much she picks up just being there. 

The public school crowd starts next week; Selah is so excited she can barely stand it. We go for her meet the teacher day tomorrow and Tori and Julia on Thursday. I will take plenty of pictures next Tuesday, our third first day!
