Back up troops have arrived!

 I have recovered from my mixed up thoughts- we are peacefully continuing on with our original plan. We do not need to rush things such as friends, activities, even our education. Everything is going so well- I do not need to out think myself but to prayerfully and peacefully carry on what we have already been doing. Thank you for your words of encouragement and wisdom!

Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for what he has done. 
If you do this you will experience his peace which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand.
His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Jesus Christ. 
Philippians 4:6-7

Katie and Devan are here now. Poor Kate got very sick this week (she is student teaching). She went right to the doctor but was misdiagnosed. They thought she had the flu. She ended up back at the doctor 36 hours later with a very swollen throat and a fever of 103. She had a bad case of strep throat. She is supposed to do a reading at our nieces/cousins wedding but still is not well enough to attend the grooms dinner.  Although she looks good in the pictures- it's so not fair... young people always look good.
When the older kids are at home, the younger ones right away gravitate to them- it is a nice little break for mom!

This afternoon Sarah, Anna and Momma (me) went to a friends house for a little playgroup! One of the Mom's just got home from Ethiopia 4 weeks ago with her little boy- 18  months old. He is soooo cute!! Another mom just got home this past week with her little girl from Korea (9-10 months old) - they could not make it because they are still recovering from jet lag. This is the first group we met when we started our adoption journey - PAC class- pre-adoption class at CHSFS. I just had to post a pic of the kids- they are too cute!! What blessings they are!

Oh my gracious - those babies are all so adorable together! And that little guy looks like he could be buddies with our Elijah!

We are trying to get our oldest to come home for a little visit - she is working two jobs because her husband lost his I am happy that you have your Katie home for a bit - Mommas just need their big girls home for some good ol' fashioned girl time!
