Conversation I just overheard....

Emily has a friend over playing this afternoon. Natalie, Ridge, Emily, and Preston are playing some sort of war game in the house that involves pelting each other with balled up socks and hiding. I think its a little like paintball. So they are making up the rules of this game so that everyone is clear. If you hit someone on the head-one point, if you hit someone in the back-one point, etc, etc. And then I hear this..."but if you hit Adiah or knock her down you are deducted 5 points". Wow, thanks guys. Good to know that you have your priorities straight!! I think we won't risk it and she'll hang with me for awhile.

Awww, how sweet...I think. Was it the neighbor kid that said it or one of the sibs?

That makes me laugh! You have some sweet kiddos!

You seem to have a gift of giving loving attention and praise to each of your children equally...each time I read a blog about one of your children, if taken by itself, it would have been easy to believe that THIS was your favorite child:o)....Way to go mom...may God bless you and your family:o)

For a minute, I thought you were going to say they would get high points for knocking her down! Glad to know your kids are so considerate!

Kim, Aaron, Jake, and Jack said...

That cracked me up! Can't wait to see yall soon...but I am beginning to wonder when "soon" will be. I seriously need to make Aaron take me and the boys out there. We could leave the guys with the kiddos and you and I could go shopping! Great idea!!!

I just wanted to let you know that I have followed your journey with Adiah and I wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS! I think it is such a wonderful thing that you and your family have done and will continue to do. You are truly blessed! Adiah is adorable and your kiddies are growing up so fast!

With that said I will continue to check out your blog!
