I love my family!

   I love my sweet family!  David and Jordan (19) went to visit the KU campus today.  Fun road trip for them.  It was a nice cool fall day to be there.  They talked with people in admissions and in the film department.  Jordan has finished his training for the Kansas Air National Guard and is currently working full time on base.  In the Spring he will attend Wichita State and then off to KU in the Fall.  He's so ready!  One of our pastors is starting a church in Lawrence. Knowing that Jordan will have a church there gives us peace.  God covers all the bases!

   Two of our 4 teens were sick this past week but not today.  They all made it to school today :) Well the 3 that are still in school. I did some returns and grocery shopping for my next fundraiser - a Bake Sale.  My friend and her daughter joined my girls and me for Chick-Fil-A  and then came over to our house.  The girls watched movies and Les and I baked A Lot of cookies.   and ate a few too.  Cranberry/Walnut/Oatmeal, Snickerdoodle, Pumpkin Snickerdoodle and Butterscotch/Chocolate Chip.  Oh my! It was much more fun to bake with Les than to do it all myself.  Amish proverb, "Many hands make light work."  It's so true.  Aaron just hung out with the computer because he was terribly outnumbered by girls!  Sorry Aaron.  He'll go with the guys to visit KU in the Spring since he's a Junior.  

   Tomorrow morning we will take a mini road trip to the El Dorado area - Walter's Pumpkin Patch here we come!  Expect too many pictures on my next post!  

   Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. :) Love your sweet, quick post.

    I saw your family on Filled With Praise. Congratulations on your adoption journey! My husband and I are adopting from Ethiopia as well--1-2 girls 0-5 years.

    Blessings to your family!


  2. Saw your post on AWAA! Congratulations on your DTE! We are also adopting siblings through Awaa ages 7, 11,14 who we have known before they went to Awaa.

  3. Haha. I honestly thought you just meant to write a post that simple said, "I love my family!". :)
