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.

Sunday to Sunday - Summer to Fall - Snapshots of it All (Well, actually a small picture of a little of it!)

Things are very busy as we ease back into the school routine. Last Sunday the kids had a bowling party for Alayna's local little brother - 

Here's the little girl who has inherited the "clean out the Tupperware cabinet" job after numerous warnings about opening the door and throwing the clean Tupperware in, with no regard to what a mess it creates.

The garden is still pumping out green beans and tomatoes -

We begin CC this Tuesday and week one history is Columbus, so I assigned these books this week, (other than Where's Waldo).

Alei came over one day and we sat outside with the goats. I wondered what the donkey would do if we let him out. He had a blast, just eating grass and weeds around the yard. He went right back in with grain when I needed him to.

After taking Lincoln to the vet the day before for some infected bite on his foot, Storm started acting weird while the goats were out. Reflecting back, we realized that she was when we let her out also, but it got much worse. After she was unable to stand, I called the farm vet, who came within 30 minutes. She seems to have some neurological issue, but it is improving with the injected meds that he used to treated a few random issues. I'm not loving the vet bills of the week!

 It's back to school on Tuesday, so I'll take the expected picture and post!
