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.

Spring Break

 I envy the people who get to spring clean over spring break; I desperately need to spring clean, but spring hair took over spring break. Since I was in CA before spring break and we literally have a major event every weekend in April, all four girls had to have their hair done this week. I normally never do more than two in a week!

I started taking Julia's out last Friday. On Saturday, Tori took Selah's out while I did the first round of corn-rowing in Julia's.

Bella's really needed to come out before Easter as well, so Tori continued and took Bella's out Sunday morning while I washed and combed through Selah and Bella's. Selah and Bella wore theirs out and wild for Easter and Julia went with just the first round of braiding.

I rebraided Bella's on Monday, since her last day of school was Tuesday at CC. Since my lesson plans were complete, I went ahead and pushed myself through the Selah braiding that I had planned for Tuesday as well. That worked out really well, because we went and saw a dairy cow (that's a different blog post) on Tuesday afternoon and I would have been a day behind otherwise.

On Wednesday, Ben took out Tori's hair while I started the second round of braiding on Julia's. I had a hair crisis by running out of the extensions and frantically searched our county hair suppliers to find nothing.

At this point, I had to take Tori and Julia to a park day with half done hair. On Thursday, I rebraided Tori's hair.

On Friday morning, I hit four hair supplies "in town" and come home with the needed supplies for Julia and promptly finished her hair.

Now it is Friday and we are headed to family camp for the weekend. The kids are ready and wearing last year's camp t-shirts, except for Bella whose must be in the wash, so she is going with the purple San Diego shirt.

Elijah wanted in on a shot
 JD is picking up Moriah at work and I should be loading the van instead of blogging, but here's a shot of my pile. It's a lot when I have to take all our bedding and towels.

JD just called to see if I had started loading, so I'm off....
