Slime.  This could be the coolest thing…you know…ever.  It has lasted for a month.  We keep it in a tupperware bowl with a lid (or a plastic baggie).  The kids have played with this for hours and they were completely bummed when it *finally* dried out. This homemade slime far surpasses silly putty or playdoh…hands …

Lessons Learned from Camping

These are the Lessons Learned from Camping.  Please, heed and enjoy! Pee, it happens and not where it should.  It could happen on the bed or behind a utility shed.  If you can’t see people, while you are peeing, they can’t see you.

Look Closely

Funniest Picture Ever This is one of my FAVORITE pictures.  Look Closely.  Little Man had been home for about 5 mths.  The boys were teaching him the ropes of swimming.  Then, they decided to “layout” for a tan 🙂  Honestly, I get tickled every time I look at this picture.

Raising Boys and Raising Girls

Here are my random thoughts on Raising Boys and Raising Girls. Raising Boys They are cute.  Yet, they smell like beef and cheese or candy.  Honestly, they give great hugs. Their toy collection consists of cars and guns.  They can run through the house and touch all the light fixtures.  Oh, and they can swing on the …

International Adoption Africa Bound

International Adoption Africa Bound.  The Lord remembered my passion and my love and He blessed us with the opportunity to adopt from Africa.  The paperwork was, again, a nightmare.  It would’ve been a semi-short process (from February beginning and bringing him home that December) to a long, painful process. Starting our International Adoption Process We …

My Thoughts about Adoption

My Thoughts about Adoption These are My Thoughts about Adoption.  I don’t talk about this subject much.  Adoption is very near and dear to my heart.  I love children.  I have always loved children…if my sanity could handle it, I would’ve had a dozen.  Since my body couldn’t handle birthing any more babies, the Lord …
