Thursday Adventures

Despite me trying to have at least two days a week that didn’t have a commitment this year I was only successful in getting one evening during the regular week that we don’t have something going on. Yes we get to spend most lunches together because we homeschool and the littles are home from preschool…

And Coppelia is 4!

4 years ago on August 21, 2015, Clint and I were actually in Seoul, we flew out early that afternoon after Edric’s court meeting on the 20th for his adoption. Little did we know that across the city our little spitfire of a girl was making her way into the world. I think had we…

Twin Silo Park

Last week we went to explore a park that I had heard about. It was even better than I had imagined. I think everyone had a blast including Clint and I. The name of the park is Twin Silo Park and it is located in Fort Collins. There are two huge silos on site and…

Calm In The Midst of Chaos

At least that’s my goal, calm in the midst of chaos. Because let’s face it, 5 kids and a constantly changing ER schedule doesn’t make the calm easy. So I’ve had to work really hard to make a calm and functional day to day schedule. And I tend to keep everything in my head and…

Mimi And Papa Visit

Last weekend Clint’s parents came for a visit. It was really hot all weekend long but we had a good time despite the weather. There was a lot of playing in the water and running through the sprinklers. The kids had fun playing Legos, reading books and playing games with Mimi and Papa as well….

July 4th Weekend

We made July 4th kind of a whole weekend celebration instead of just a day. It just kind of came together that way. We started the morning with the now annual neighborhood July 4th parade. All the kids met at our house on their bikes, most of which were decorated, (our family only had purple…

Father’s Day 2019

So in typical fashion this is a couple of weeks late. We finished up Korea Heritage Camp the morning of Father’s Day and had a lunch packed and planned on going on a hike. Unfortunately we didn’t get but less than a minute away from the parking lot and Paxton got very sick to his…

Korea Camp 2019

One of our favorite summer activities every June is Korea Heritage Camp. The kids start asking about camp in September. Korea Camp is part of 9 Heritage Camps put on by Heritage Camps for Adoptive Families that focus on making adoption and heritage important. Korea Camp was the first camp that they started 27 years…

Olympic National Park Day 2

Our second day kid free in Olympic National Park took us west. Way west to the coast. After talking with one of my nurses who had recently ventured out to Olympic National Park we decided to visit Shi Shi Beach. Part of it starts on the Makah Indian Reservation so we had to stop and…

Kids Journals…

So I realized this past week that the majority of my parenting lately has all been correcting and re-directing and in all honestly just trying to keep little people alive through each day. As I was reflecting on this on my way home from Bible Study I realized that I want my kids to know…
