Today was a very long day. We had court scheduled for 11am. Part of our case was heard and then we dismissed for a 1/2 hour lunch break (thankful for that time to fill our bellies!).  Imagine with me, 2 three year olds who have  missed their naps, had soda at lunch, only a couple toys that were not quite entertaining enough and a LOT of energy. I had hoped they would fall asleep in court but it never happened! We have a 2nd court date for Wednesday, July 6 at 3:30pm!

Tonight we are reminded that God has arranged our past, present and future all for His glory. It is not easy to think this or feel this way but it's the only thing that will get me through today and tomorrow. God is sovereign.

More on the kids: We're going to have our hands full! A is very strong willed, independent, has a great little giggle, loves to always carry a bag and have shoes on. I mean she is ALWAYS putting on shoes. I'll get her diaper/pull ups off, go grab another and she already has her shoes back on! Every time we go to the car, she wants to get in the driver seat and HAS to look out the window.

M is more joyful and easy going. He has the most boisterous laugh that makes his whole body shake. His little run is the cutest think you've ever seen. He likes to be cuddled and hugged and kissed. He likes small stuffed animals and balls and a little toy motorcycle he can ride here at the guest house.

We are having a lot of fun with the kids, obviously some challenges but that's expected no matter how the kids come :)


  1. Yay!! So glad u got another court date before the 15th!

  2. Sounds like you stumbled upon Jackson and Jordan...So happy for you guys!

  3. Will you get your ruling on the 6th or just another time with the judge?

  4. Same question as LL can PM me if it's easier or better for you...did you get the idea that you would get a ruling then or have to do something else? Can't wait to meet A and M. Anything JT and I can do for you on this end. Would love to fill your fridge for when you come home. Just send a list of likes/dislikes/must haves and we'll have it there for you!

  5. So great seeing you in court! I wish I could have said hello and chatted but unfortunately it was not my time to speak ;) Keep me posted how it goes! Praying!
