The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Favorite Photo Friday

This week we started 2nd grade, and we got THE teacher that we wanted.  This is the first time Liam has had the same teacher Jack had so we are excited that we know what to expect and that we know Liam will be totally loved on this year.  We love his second grade teacher!  This is him the first day of second grade.

Fourth grade!  I just can't hardly believe it!  We got a teacher that everyone says is great with boys, so that is going to be perfect for us because Jack is definitely 100% boy!  He's excited about his class and it's shaping up to be a great year already.  This is Jack on the first day of his last year of Elementary.  :(

Connor cried almost every morning at the bus stop when he had to separate from his beloved brothers.  This boy is a BIG fan of the big boys!  So we did alot of creative entertaining between bus pick-up and bus drop-off.  One day we went "magnet fishing" off the back of the couch.  Am I a bad mom that I let him fish for candy?


We turned a worm into a gorgeous moth.  I can't believe that Connor caught this caterpillar, we googled how to keep him alive, and he actually spun a cocoon, busted out and flew around the house.  That never works like it's supposed to, but this one time, it did.  Now we can't find him.  He's probably in my closet eating all my winter sweaters! :(  Man, do I need to paint my baseboards! :)


And we rediscovered some great uses for a well loved tree.... "cat fishing"!

Pirate ship!  You can't see Connor, but he's in there, sailing the high seas with his stick-sword.  


And that's life in the trenches of suburbia this week.  What were your favorite things this week?

Thank you so much for leaving a comment...don't worry about the "dryer thing", there are days that I will need to use it..ie: jeans in the winter, blankets too big to hang outside...and other things during the winter months. But every time that I don't use the dryer, is just a little way I can throw some change in our jar.

I know for a fact however from reading your blog that you are an amazing woman and have helped the orphans in SO many ways that I couldn't do or unable to persue...and every way that you have helped is no different than mine...great to know we are ALL family and sisters in the Lord.

Blessings to you and your family.
