All done!

29 Mar

IMG_3778 IMG_3779the new kids did great!  They all loved skiing.  The day ended with a race, around real ski gates!  It was fun.  It was so HOT today and yesterday.  The children were dripping wet.

Luke was so happy, he just loved skiing.  This photo of all 8 was taken after the race, saying good bye to their coaches and goodbye to the mountain. Mom cried.

It was not a restful trip but we sure had some fun!  We met several nice people who had noticed our adopted children and approached us with encouragement or that shared their own adoption stories.   So many many children wait.  Could God be waiting to bless your family with the gift of adoption?

We had some normal heated annoying family moments, then good devos. with dad, some tears, bonding, and in the end?  8 happy kids!

2 tired parents :)

praise God for his beautiful creation, His glorious Rocky Mountains.  Praise God for the gift of these great eight children.

    What a great idea! AND what a wonderful family time!

    The challenges seem to come hand in hand with the good times!

    You are inspiring me to attempt to take our crew skiing! However this next winter will be a trip to Florida! maybe the following winter?

    GOD bless you!! You are an awesome MOM!!
    Love your family!!

    So happy for you, that you could have a family vacation! There’s nothing quite like getting everyone away from “normal” life and all together in a family setting. Your children are all beautiful and I can tell they have beautiful hearts. Sometimes I wonder how you keep the needs of all of them straight. Then I remember, Oh…you don’t. God does! :) And He is your daily helper! Bless you as you return home and shift gears again.
