We survived our first full week back at school!!! Homework has started back up and Daniel is already working on his first book report. It is a 3-4 minute speech. He has to finish reading the book still, but he has a couple of weeks. Katie Beth is loving the 2nd grade. We are having a garage sale tomorrow and Katie Beth is going to sell pop. She can't wait!! We sure hope someone buys some pop. Mike told me that I am going to have to give the neighbors money to make sure they come and buy some pop!!
There is no news concerning a baby, but I want to say how wonderful we think Christian Adoption is and we feel blessed to be a part of the CA family! Have a great weekend!

Grocery Store Conversations!

After school today, Daniel. Katie Beth, and I were at the grocery store to get milk. As we were walking down the frozen food aisle, Katie Beth asks me where she was born? I am not sure what prompted this, but oh well, I'll play along! I tell her that she was born in Missouri. "Oh" she says. I wonder what my birthmother's house looks like? I tell her that I honestly don't know. By now we have made it to the express checkout, but there appears to be nothing express about our conversation. Katie Beth then goes on to ask if she has any brothers or sisters? Once again I tell her I don't know, but that her brother is standing right next to her!! By now, Daniel wants in on the action. He wants to know if they are going to want Katie Beth back? I am not sure if this was out of concern or if it was hopeful thinking? I quickly respond that Katie Beth is our family and here to stay. I think it is funny, because Daniel didn't ask about his birthfamily. I finally say to him, "You do know that you are adopted too?" We have always talked about it, but at this moment in Hy-vee, I wasn't quite sure. You just never know what conversations might be prompted by a trip to the grocery store! I just love how their little minds work!

I have been working on my blog today. I couldn't have done this without my new friend from CA, Kellie. I owe a big thanks to Kellie for helping me create this blog. Daniel and Katie Beth survived their first week of school and so did I. It is always an adjustment for me to be at home by myself. Katie Beth is so excited about getting a sibling and she is convinced that it will be a sister. We keep reminding her that we are praying for the baby God has chosen for us, which might be a boy!! I hope all of you have a fantastic weekend! The weather here in Missouri is beautiful for August!

New to the Blog World

Hi everyone! I am new to the blog world, but I have loved reading all of the adoption blogs that I have come across. We are creating this blog to keep all of our family and friends up to date on our adoption journey and our lives. We have two beautiful children that God blessed us with through adoption and we would like to add to our family again! Our son Daniel is 9 years old and Katie Beth is 8 years old. It has been a long time since we have done the baby thing, but our whole family is ready. Please keep us in your prayers as we wait for God to bring our next blessing into our lives.
