Well goodness, the whole summer has gone by and we are well into the fall, and I'm finally getting around to putting up some more pictures on the blog!  I may go back and fill in some of the summer, but in the meantime let's just go forward, shall we?

A friend and I took the kids to an apple orchard about an hour outside Chicago.  It was beautiful!  Unfortunately Drama Queen had to stay home and do math and French for school.  The other kids had a blast, and it was an absolutely perfect fall day.

Isn't he getting so big and handsome!

Always the goofball

The Artist is so very good to Zoe.

Ponies!  Zoe LOVES Ponies!

They had this huge "jumping pillow" the kids loved.

Apple slingshot

How very blessed we are.


  1. Fun. . .short and sweet. I need to learn how to limit my words on my blog. I didn't realize you had adopted a little girl. . .from which country? Korea? China? And my goodness, Tannah has grown up into a young lady!

  2. Hi Vicky. Zoe was adopted from China in December 2011. Look back on the blog - her story is still there :')

    They are all growing up sooo fast!
