Big Day

Tomorrow is a big day.  Our case will be heard before the 8th District Court.

Please kneep us in your prayers.


Never dull or boring around here.  Started the day cheering on Jack and Titus as soccer.

Went to cheer on Adie and her friends at volleyball.

Then defying all reasonable logic, I took 7 kids to the mall.  I know they are big kids, but my 4 boys are stuck in the middle school funnies and shenanigans.

I ended the day with adding some new curtains and taught Max how to iron.

Oliver Party

Silas wanted to invite all the people who loved him to meet his new puppy Oliver.

If you would have told me 4 months ago we would be at this place of hope, I would have never believed you.

Raising kids is hard, now times that by a hundred for kids whom have had deep trauma.

I’m not implying it’s all roses and sunshine, but God is sustaining and there is a peace that surpasses all understanding.

With all being said, over 60 people came to love on Silas and Oliver. This was a testament to the amazing community that we have been blessed with in this journey.

All snuggled in

They frequently come into our bed before we fall asleep. It’s our special time with the big two. They will talk to me even as I desperately try not to fall asleep, but alas, I usually start making noncoherent sentences and that’s their cue to go to bed. I love raising teenage girls.

0 for 4

0 for 4 tonight.

Boys in bed while tucking: did you brush your teeth?

No. I forgot.


82nd Birthday

My Grandpa had his very first birthday party at 82 years young. He told my mom it was the best birthday party!

Blast from the past

Baby Ava. My oh my have you grown! It’s hard to believe that it has been almost 5 years to the day. We love you to the moon and back.
