Please Pray for Haiti

The adoption agency that we are working with also works in Haiti. As you may already know Haiti was hit by a horrible earthquake early this year, but what was not so well publicized is that earlier this month, Haiti was hit by a hurricane. So many, many Haitians that are already living in earthquake refugee camps were flooded out by the hurricane and rains. Please, please say a prayer for them.

Here is the blog for God's children in Haiti....

What the Friday??

My What the friday is about a girl in Kansas this week who was taking a class about livestock and poultry prodution. The class project was to raise chickens and then slaughter, dress and package them...well this girl got attached to her chicken and refused to slaughter it, instead she smuggles the dumb thing out of school in her purse.

ok Really?? what did she think they were going to do with a chicken in a class about poultry production??? and why on earth would anyone put a chicken in a purse??? that would make a huge mess. And lastly the article ends with the chicken now lives on a relatives farm...really?? And what happens to chickens on farms??? They live happily ever after right??

Isaac funny

The other night we were playing a game as a family. We had recently bought an add-on to the game and were figuring out the new cards. Todd was confused about one of the new cards and kept questioning me about it. I had played the card at a friend's house and knew how it worked but Todd kept arguing about it. After I explained it for the third time, I asked, "do you get it now, oppositional-boy?"

Isaac pipes up with "yeah Dad, you are reminding me of me!"

Also Isaac just loves Grover doing the Old Spice commercial....

Our adoption journey (so far)

We started our adoption journey in January 2008 when we started working with a local agency. Our homestudy and training took about six months so in June 2008 we were put in "their book". We sat there for two years waiting for an adoption in the state of ND.

Finally in 2010 we decided that we needed to go out of state. We started working with a new agency that does homestudies in ND and MN. We spent the summer doing paper work and redoing our homestudy. Our fingerprints came back in September so now we are in the "waiting" stage again.

I feel a lot more hopeful with this agency though, they have been able to show us more "situations" in the last month than the local one did in 2 years. So hopefully soon one of these situations will work out to our baby.


Stacy had surgery two weeks ago. The girl had been growing lumps, some of them getting pretty big so the vet decided that they should come out. Thankfully they were just fatty tissue. She has had to wear a cone for the last two weeks too, she is using it as an excuse to run into things and especially me!

Today she got her stitches taken out and it must have hurt because she is pouting. She has to wear the cone for a couple more days and cant have a bath until next week. Poor girl really needs one, too.

First day of School

Isaac started Kindergarten this year at a public school. He is doing pretty good so far. We still have some sensory kinks to work out. I think that he has a really understanding teacher so hopefully we can get him adjusted soon.

I am back to subbing, and actually started on the first day of school too. I have been keeping pretty busy, so I have not had much time to get things done around the house. But that is ok, I like to be in the classrooms.
