Update and Pics

It's been so long since I've written I wouldn't be surprised if my readership has up and left. For anyone still around, thank you, and here's an update of the family.

Gosh how I wish summer wasn't over. Many joy-filled moments and time spent with family and special friends.

Love our time at the cabin...the kids could live here.

3 of my 4 kiddos got up on water skis.

Backyard zip line fun.

Pool time.

And what summer isn't complete without a few polly wogs that turn into frogs.

And two new additions to our family...

 We ended the summer with our Re-adoption hearing. Even though Meskie is already legally ours and came home as a citizen, we re-adopted in our state so that she could be issued a US birth certificate and have her name changed legally. Here are the kids outside the court house. 
And now we embark on a whole new chapter. I am constantly reminded of how fast time flies by and often find myself wishing it would slow down. My oldest started 2nd grade.

These two started 1/2 day kindergarten. It's hard to believe Meskie has just been home a year. She is ready and excited for school. They both are. So thankful they have each other...

And my sweet pea started preschool. Thank goodness it's only 3 afternoons a week.

I have found it more difficult to find the time to continue blogging. For anyone still reading, help me out with subjects you'd like to hear about or discuss. I don't want this simply to be a journal of our life...I want it to serve a purpose of sorts. So chime in. Anything you want to hear about?


  1. I think I want spend my summeris with you guys next year...look like a great time! Glad to see you are back to the blog.

  2. No help with the purpose of the blog. I am struggling with that myself! I am glad you are back to it though. You have a beautiful family.

    1. Thanks Cindy....always love getting your blog updates :-)

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! And, I might be inviting myself to your family's lake cabin next summer ;-)

    1. Would love you to visit! Hope all is well with you...

  4. Great to hear from you again! Lovley pictures! Hope everyone had a wonderful first day of school.

    As to topics - I would like to know what kind of afternoon activities you plan for boys and girls. What did family and friends have to say about your adoptions. Do you get comments on the street and how do you deal with it.

    Thank you so much.
