Day Three

Braeden was warm through the night off and on, but woke up fine today. We still stayed out of the water today though and instead went through two stores, played at a HUGE play area, ate some TASTY ice cream, and then went to pick up our pottery pieces before heading home.

What can I say, the kid wanted to make a vase for flowers, he cracks me up!

Liam picked Dracula. :)

And Olivia's is a wall hanging that says "Girls Rock".
There is wire and some beads to be added to hang it with.

And I got a free 6" tile to paint but was so busy corralling and helping
that I am not happy with it, but it's ok, it was FREE! :)

And when we arrived home finally, our clocks obviously hadn't been set back yet. The kids don't know about daylight savings and now was not the time to teach them! I left the clocks as is as we are all exhausted, and they were in bed and sound asleep a full hour early! Love it!

Sounds like a great trip with a happy ending!

Way to go on the time change! :) No one set my clocks back and I wasn't paying much attention in the morning. I thought it was 5:00 a.m., but it was only 4:00. I decided that was a good time to start making stew before I made my early trip to Wal-Mart.

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. 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
