What's been up with us

Mikaela (in center wearing maroon) and her friend Chelsea (at right in maroon)
Just over a week ago Mikaela performed with the All District Chorus at WIU.  Although I may or may not be a little biased, it was an amazing concert.

Jacob completed his first ipod/ipad application a few months ago.  It was an agricultural app that he wrote for the company where his dad works.  As payment, he received his own ipad.

From the speech contest a few weeks ago, Joseph and Clayton were chosen for the judge's choice award for the second year in a row.

Saidie has been added to the Saturday breakfast rotation and enjoyed her first breakfast out with daddy recently.  She also spent some time in speech evaluation with Miss Kristie last week.

As our one year post-placement report will soon be due, we visited with Miss Laura so she could get the final information and photos from us to complete the report.  It's always a pleasure seeing her, and the girls were in "entertain mode".

This past weekend we attended an Orphan Care Event at a nearby church that featured the ladies from 147 Million Orphans.  I always enjoy hearing adoption stories, and there were several very inspirational stories to be heard that evening.
