This is Aaron's first official back to school. He started kindergarten on Wednesday and I now have a new back to school tradition.

And he made this handprint his first day of school.

Absent no longer!

I have been absent for way too long! I have a new project. We sold Aaron's crib and the dresser with a hutch today. They never were my style but they were an excellent deal from my brother. We bought this dresser to replace it. One drawer needed repaired and the top piece had to be put back on. We are picking it up tomorrow. It would be too much labor to refinish it (what husband wanted) so, I am going to paint it navy blue and distress it.

The second hand store we bought this from is really creepy and dirty but things are very cheap! I'm glad my husband had the day off to go with me.

Have you seen this Wal-Mart commercial? I laughed and cried so hard. This could totally happen at my house.

God Bless Little Boys

This little boy will be 4 tomorrow!

I can't tell you what time he was born or any details of that day because I wasn't there. The first time I held Aaron was a warm September afternoon. We got the call earlier that afternoon that after a long interview process, we had been selected to become Aaron's adoptive parents. We went to the store his foster family owned and his foster dad called and arranged for Aaron to come meet us.

He brings so much Joy to our lives! He is uncertain about getting bigger. This morning he told me he was almost big like me and then he said he wanted to stay little. He is excited to have his first non-family birthday party.

Happy 4th Birthday, Aaron!!!

I have been absent from blogging and I blame things like this

and this

I am going to try to blog more in the upcoming months but it is difficult to make the time when I have Aaron, and work and good reads calling.

Sometimes we understand a message when it is simply illustrated

Sometimes we understand a message when it is simply illustrated..

....and you question God - 'why me?'.....
always look at the bigger picture....

A day without the Lord - Is a day wasted.

God is going to shift things around for you today and let things work in your favor.

Thank God for the stuff that didn't hit you!
