48 Hours - Wed. Night

So much has happened in the last 48 hours it's crazy. :) We'll call this Wednesday night's portion of that time period. :)

Our church rented our local (small) waterpark that night from 7-9pm. My friend J and I debated, but the weather looked great for the night, so we went. Our park has two zero depth small kid areas with two small kid slides, and which lead into a deeper pool. There is a small lazy river and three bigger slides - both of which you need to be at least 46inches to go on. There is also a concession stand area and a sand play area.

It was lots of fun, but, as the sun descended, it became rather chilly. After about 40 minutes, my three were chattering they were so cold. They get cold pretty easily, but it was chilly. So, where did they spend most of their time?

The sand!!! :)
They did great and Braeden especially made me so proud. Last year I had to sign a paper because he has absolutely no fear of the water and was "swimming" toward the deeper area. A lifeguard saw him, thought he was drowning, and jumped in to rescue him! He stayed where I asked this time and did great! :)
We have a lot of families/kids in our church and it was neat to see so many there. Needless to say they were beat and slept great that night. :)

Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
