Large Family Hacks…Laundry Edition

So as we have been settling in its been more than obvious that if we can streamline or make something or anything easier we all benefit from it. And so as I was thinking if our large family benefits from something it is possible that other large families might as well or even smaller families….

Boating!

After Korea Heritage Adoption Camp (post still coming I promise!), on Tuesday we decided to go boating on Lake Granby. It is the second largest lake in Colorado and the headwaters of the Colorado River. It was the first time for the kids to be on a boat and they were so excited. It was…

Family Hike….

So this is a little out of order but it’s because we spent last weekend at Korea Heritage Adoption camp and many of my photos from that are on my camera which I haven’t downloaded yet, so as a result I’m jumping ahead to our after camp hike and the photos I have of that…

Coppelia 1 Year Home!

Last Saturday we marked Coppelia being home for one year! With the ballet and everything it was a busy week and so I am finally getting around to posting about it. It is crazy to think that it has already been a year, but also amazing to watch how far she has come. Of the…

Paxton Home 1 Year!

On March 25th we celebrated Paxton being home 1 year. Clint and I took custody on March 23rd last year on Caedmon’s birthday but we celebrate the day that he came home on the 25th as his Family Day. From the moment he met his brothers in the airport he has adored and followed them…

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…

First Snow Day 2017

We’ve actually had a couple of snows already this season but Tuesday was the first day that we had more than just a dusting of snow. And along with the snow quite a drop in temperature. Edric has recently fallen in love with riding his bike and so while it was 25 degrees outside and…

Dedication…

This past Saturday we got to celebrate child dedication at our church for Edric, Paxton and Coppelia. We did baby dedications for Leighton and Caedmon when they were born and had planned on doing Edric’s dedication after he came home but somewhere in the midst of everything it got put on the back burner and…

Day To Day…

Honestly some days are exhausting. Actually I take that back, every day is exhausting. 5 kids is tough. Like really TOUGH. And yet so far we have managed to keep all 5 alive every day, so in that sense we are doing well. And just about the time I think we are getting ahead and…
