8 days......

Eight days until Handsome and The Helper are getting on airplane to get Brooke and Jillian!  I am so glad it is finally here - and yet at the same time, it seems to be too few of days to get them ready.  It is just a busy time of the year.

Today is Serenity's 6th birthday!

We had cupcakes today but are also celebrating on Monday with a combined birthday with The Warrior, who is turning 16.  I have 2 kids getting driver's licenses in just a little over a did that happen?  The day after the party, school starts - 12th, 10th, 9th, 7th, 6th, three 5th graders, and 2

I must be busy, because it is hard for me to wrap my head around some of these the brain just can't grasp it.

We are desperately missing Lucy.  She loved what do we see everywhere?  Frozen costumes, Frozen fabric, Frozen on Ice, Frozen yogurt....each time I have to swallow back tears.  Praying God is protecting her and she knows we love her.....

As you read this, could you pray for:

1) Protection and safe travels for Handsome and The Helper.
2) That God would be preparing Brooke and Jillian's heart for us and us for them.
3) That God would watch over every detail of the process.
4) That He would provide all that we need for the last of the expenses for travel.

We are praising Him for His faithfulness and for His Hand upon these precious little girls.

Here we go.....


  1. Happy Birthday! Just as a heads up, you did post some real names in this post. I don't know if you meant to.
