Another Trip Around The Sun….

Squished between Christmas and New Years I celebrate another journey on this planet and the start of another ride around the sun. And I know that by this next journey’s end I’ll be closer to 40 than to 35 and I’m not too sure how I feel about that yet. I still have 6 months…

Paxton-9 months home!

Christmas Day marked Paxton’s 9 month home day. I of course was a few days late getting his photo and such taken. Not that I didn’t remember on Christmas, but sometimes a lot happens between the thought “oh, Paxton’s been home 9 months today, I need to get his photo taken” and the actual photo…

4 Years Ago Today….

4 years ago today Clint and I sat in an office just a short drive from our house today and officially began the process to bring Edric JoonSoo home. It was a late Monday afternoon, we had received his file just the Friday before and made our decision shortly after opening and reviewing his file…

Coppelia-8 Months Home

Coppelia has been home and with us for 8 months. We actually had her Early Interventions update meeting yesterday with her case worker and it is amazing how far she has come. I often get overwhelmed when I think about how far behind she is with speech, but then I remember where she was when…

Running Mountains Again….

Well I’ve done it again….registered for a long trail race/run. I’ve really enjoyed running Imogene Pass the past couple of years, but I wanted/needed something to run in the spring. In the past Clint and I have done the Colfax 1/2 marathon, but honestly I get real tired of running on pavement and up a…

A Nutcracker Day…

This past Saturday Leighton, Caedmon, and I got to do what is becoming an annual tradition and go and see the Nutcracker together. In the years past however we have gone down to Denver to see the performance by the Colorado State Ballet. This year however I learned that the place that Caedmon just started…

Toddler Life x2….

Life with toddlers is never dull. And times that by 2 it makes it twice as fun…crazy…interesting…exciting…or something. And I totally think that the two of them  work with each other to work against us. There is a reason that they have been nicknamed “Double” and “Trouble”. Don’t let their innocent photos in front of…

Oh To Be 5…

Caedmon is my child with flair. And lots of it. And a self confidence to match the extent of his flair. He is as sweet as he can be and just so carefree. He is often found skipping down the road just as happy as possible. We recently changed dance studios because we needed one…

To Be 4 Years Old…

Oh Edric. Buddy it’s so hard being four. There are lots of things that you can do and a lot of stuff still to learn. But I think this incident will probably go down for stories to be told many years later with lots of laughter. Last Wednesday the older two boys were at homeschool…
