About Me

My photo
Married twenty-three years to my wonderful husband and best friend. We have 3 "home-grown" kids, 1 hand-picked by God from Africa and 1 very hyper-active dog. Our life is blessed. We are a close knit family with strong Christian beliefs. And just recently we have bought ourselves a farm. Do we know what we are doing? Nope. Come along with us on our journey…you might have a great laugh or two.

This is what summer is all about...






Swim Team is over and our kids are going through withdrawal symptoms, I believe. We have spent practically everyday at pool this summer and have loved every minute of it. Here's a few pictures I captured along the way...and yes, I know I missed one child in the pictures (our oldest son). I have a great video of him swimming, but I never got a good shot of him in the water...still love him though. It's just hard to juggle a 7 year old AND a 2 year old at all day swim meets, cheer on your kids AND take video AND capture pictures of the moment. (We'll see if you leave with all your sanity intact)


Later, I'll try and post a great swimming video.




These two are something else in the water. Our smallest one (the one who probably never even got a full bath in the orphanage he was in - just a bucket of water poured on him) is seriously great in the water...I mean crazy good. He dives for rings and dives off the side and tries very hard to give his Mom a heart attack in the water. Our youngest girl just cannot wait to get on the swim team next year. Her goal...is to fly through all the swim lessons she can to get there. And you know, what...I think she just might do it. She has skipped levels already and constantly asks if she can go up to the pool just to do some "lap swimming". Yep, we are truly one water obsessed family...

  1. I love the photos! All natural born athletes...like a little girl I remember so well. Just wish I could have been there to capture some of these moments myself!

    Love and miss you,
    Mom
