Obstacles…

Saturday morning found 5 of the 7 of us running through obstacles and over and under all sorts of things and getting muddy and wet and covered in bubbles in the process. The other 2 served as the cheer squad….kind of. I had found a kids obstacle race a number of weeks back and signed…

More Attachement…

Each of our three little blessings grieved differently and has attached differently. Edric went into total shut down mode for months and had a lot of anger and fear. That fear is still there and I think unknown to him with new situations I think he still has a fear that everything he has ever…

Paxton-3 Months Home!

Paxton has been home 3 months (and a few days because I’m a couple days late posting as usual). He is talking up a storm and repeating things and initiating his own sentences and saying all sorts of things. Some things are still in Korean, like earlier today he was looking at a book with…

21 Months And 21 Months…

21 months ago today Edric JoonSoo landed with us in Denver and officially met his brothers and joined our family. 21 months before that to the day, just 2 days before Christmas of 2013 Clint and I sat in the adoption agency office signing papers for Edric to make us officially matched and waiting for…

Happy Birthday Paxton KaOn!

On Saturday we got to celebrate Paxton’s 2nd birthday. It has been so much fun getting to know this little guy over the past few months. He is full of smiles and laughs and is so ticklish. All the boys have loved trucks, but none of them have adored them like he does. Paxton will…

Happy 4th Birthday Edric!…(Only a month late)…

Happy Birthday Edric! 4 years old. Only I’m a month late (and a few days). Don’t worry we celebrated on time and had cake and presents and all of that. I just totally forgot to write the post about you and 4 years at the time (might have been a combo of 2 new littles,…

A Moment In Time…

This past weekend was dance recital weekend. As I think I’ve mentioned in the past Caedmon has fallen in love with dancing and loves his weekly ballet/tap class. We have been so fortunate to live near a great gym that not only offers gymnastics classes which all the boys have taken, but also a dance…

Settling In….

Wow, hard to believe that we are two weeks since custody day already. It doesn’t seem like it has been that long. Except at 3 in the morning, and then it seems really long. Nights are still rough, last night was probably the easiest we’ve had and we were only up about 45 minutes from…

Final Days As A Family Of 5…

This past Saturday we made it a family day. It’s the last time it will just be just the 5 of us.  We decided to spend the afternoon hiking one of the trails close to our house. We have hiked this one a number of times, it is a little over 3 miles round trip…

Final Approval And Faithfullness….

A year ago this week our paperwork went to Korea for Paxton. We were excited to be a family of 6 and I was excited to be a “boy mom” to 4 boys. Little did we know that less than a week after our paperwork was sent we were going to get a phone call…

Living In The Unknown…

Alright so I’m a little over this. Lots of unknowns this past year…and it seems that we’ve gone from one to another to another. And in multiple areas of life. From work with opening the urgent/emergent center and having no idea how that was going to look (with me being in charge of it on…

Paxton’s 12th Package

I’m really hoping I went to the post office for the last time this past weekend to mail a package off to a traveling family. All in all this makes a total of 35….20 for Edric while we were waiting (17 gallon size packages, a Christmas and 2 birthday packages), 13 for Paxton (12 gallon…
