Another Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

A friend of mine and I decided to take our kiddos to the pumpkin patch wg's school went to. It was so much fun! Never got the perfect "kids in pumpkins" picture...but we tried....oh well. =) Thanks Teri for today! It was so much fun!

Our garden!

Our Garden is exploding! It is so fun! I can't believe how beautiful it is! We have our own compose pile that we put our food trash in...wg thinks it is really incredible, there....It has actually gotten bigger than this...just haven't been able to catch up...stay tuned for some veggies!

Dressing up

So, dressing up is the hottest thing in our home these days....i think my children wear more outfits than clothes. Laura i know how you must feel with your girls! It is so fun! So, here is my Buzz and my Fairy! What does "Dressing Up" really mean anyway? who came up with that...hmmm

Kovacs come to visit!

We just had the most amazing family come and stay with us for 5 days! How house totalled 7 kids and 4 adults and it was the most pleasant company we have had!! The kids played together like they were brothers and sisters and had known each other for a long was precious! I wish this family lived here in austin....but they were just passing through. We met the Kovacs through mutual friends and have learned from each other through our blogs over the past 2 years. Shawnda and I have talked a lot about parenting, husbands, living in community.....we've talked so much that we feel like we've known each other for years...but reality, this was the first time we had all been in person with each other. wow! this family was such a blessing to our lives! We really miss them already.

The Kovacs have adopted 3 of their 4 children. Jason works for an adoption fund and helps churches and families work through the whole doctrine on adoption by literally adopting children all over. He helps equip churches and people work through adoption. Stew and I have been moved within our hearts to adopt and especially over this last month with different circumstances touching our lives. The kovacs visit was a timely one as we got to experience thier family and to talk with them about our own personal steps towards adoption! As I looked into the eyes of her adopted children, I saw myself, knowing God had adopted me. The gospel is so clear when you experience and hear their story as a family. Kovacs, we love you so much and absolutely can't thank you enough for the blessings you gave to our family during your visit! Can't wait to see you again!
