Wanted to give a quick update of how our summer was, besides way too fast!
We honestly have been more sad recently, since we’ve been waiting to adopt a child for over 2 years now. We continue trusting the Lord and in His timing, and we continue to pray for that sweet child and his/her parents.
Blake and Mandy got to celebrate their 10th anniversary in Alaska, and would love to take the kids up there at some point to bask in the beauty of God’s creation!
Hunter and Jaxon got to play basketball this summer in the local YMCA league, and they really enjoyed it! We encourage all our kids to try new things, but we don’t push them to things we want them to do, and only if they like it. One of them wanted to quit during the season, but we didn’t let him since he had made a commitment.
For the third year, we had an amazing time at Pine Cove family camp in east Texas! THe kids enjoyed seeing friends, playing with counselors, riding horses, swimming, ziplining and boating on the lake! We’re not sure we’ll ever stop going!
