Random thoughts

  • Well, sorry that it has been so long, life has been really busy now that school is in full swing.

  • School seems to be going well, both kids have amazing teachers!

  • We have been very busy this fall and have been loving most of the busyness!

  • We are STILL vehicle shopping- most of you know Joel, he has to find that good deal!!

  • Joel is still working 50-60 hour weeks, it makes for one tired daddy, but he is still managing to get time in with the kids, nothing else though. I'm so thankful that he chooses the kids over other things.

  • Joel got Dane's "D" tattooed on his back last week, now he has all the kid's initials.

  • Sadly, Joel's grandpa past away a couple weeks ago. He died of a broken heart. He was Joel's hero and the best grandpa ever- he is truly missed.

  • We had an AMAZING summer!

  • We received an email from Danes foster mom 2 days ago. I became very emotional as I read the words that she wrote. It left me feeling forever grateful for this wonderful woman (and family) who cares so deeply for our son and our family. I am so happy to have her words on paper to share with Dane someday. I am so happy to have contact with her. She even wrote that she prays for us...I can not even begin to describe what that email meant to me.

  • Joel and I have finally had a chance to process our trip to Korea, we miss Korea so much already-we are forever changed for the better.

  • Dane is walking in public!!! He started walking about a month ago, but only at home, 2 weeks ago he started walking in public! He has also cut 8 teeth since we have been home.

  • I will try to post new pictures soon, for some reason I am having trouble tonight.

  • I think that's it. Good night!

  • Oh, I love my family and my life. It is busy, messy, and really hard sometimes, but I love it and I am blessed!!
