Apples, Soccer, & Babies

The kids had so much fun making Carmel apples. Anna Li decided that apples are not that bad when covered in a ton of sugary Carmel... she ate every bite (and she hates apples)! Colin LOVES apples but decided the sugary coating was much better... therefore only ate the Carmel. Bethany loving apples and Carmel enjoyed her pre-Halloween treat:) Soccer season is winding down and it has been a HOOT watching these 5 year old boys play!

Go Colin #6!!!!

Can't end the post without some adorable little babies!!!
Colin is so sweet to Dylan:)

Last is my adorable nephew Canaan!
Look at that sweet face!

I Took His Hand

I Took His Hand and Followed
Mrs. Roy L. Peifer

My dishes went unwashed today,
I didn't make the bed,
I took his hand and followed
Where his eager footsteps led.

Oh yes, we went adventuring,
My little son and I...
Exploring all the great outdoors
Beneath the summer sky

We waded in a crystal stream,
We wandered through a wood...
My kitchen wasn't swept today
But life was gay and good.

We found a cool, sun-dappled glade
And now my small son knows
How Mother Bunny hides her nest,
Where jack-in-the-pulpit grows.

We watched a robin feed her young,
We climbed a sunlit hill...
Saw cloud-sheep scamper through the sky,
We plucked a daffodil.

That my house was neglected,
That I didn't brush the stairs,
In twenty years, no one on earth
Will know, or even care.

But that I've helped my little boy
To noble manhood grow,
In twenty years, the whole wide world
May look and see and know
.

New Blog... New Beginnings



Welcome to our family blog.

We feel at this time it is best to change from an adoption blog to a family blog

because that is what we are- a family.


We have huge changes going on in our family.

Some very difficult to understand

but through lots of prayer

we feel that these changes are for the best.


We hope to be able to share

with you these changes in the near future.

In the mean time, we ask that you lift us up in prayer

as we seek God's wisdom and strength.

The girls continue to enjoy being home schooled.

We have participated in a lot of fun activities recently.

Anna Li and Colin went to see "The Little Red Hen"

at the Children's Theater and loved it.

We also went to Camp Meadowbrook

All the kids made animal tracks and went on a hike.

Next week Bethany and I will go to see

"The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe"

at the Children's Theater.

Colin and Anna Li will be going to the pumpkin patch

with Ma-maw.

So many fun things to do and we are really enjoying

our time with each other.

We have made colored rice and play dough!

We hade a cooking night with the kids and made

homemade mini pizza's and cookies:)

Great days!!
