I need to slap up a new post or risk loosing this blog. I've heard of people taking a year long hiatus and ZAP! - there goes years of record keeping. I probably need to print it.
New news, for those who don't read our new blog, we're expecting another baby around New Years. It's another girl! We're thrilled and can't wait to meet her. The other half dozen kids around here are all doing great. I'll post a fall picture of them sometime soon.
This is a four mile hike with some unbelievable views.
It was really, really bright at high noon so the pictures are washed out. I need a circular polarizer for this lens. It would have helped. The colors were fab. I wish they showed up better in the pictures.
They were all sitting in a tree.
I hate posting pictures of myself on camping trips but at least it shows that I was there, right?
Karys wanted to be carried for the entire 4 miles. Most of the time, Daddy was the cart and if I was near, she was crying "Help me! Help! Mommy!" See that pitiful little face? Every time we would say "wow, you're heavy. My arms are sure tired" she would say "it'll be alright. You're not tired". :):):).
I am not blogging here anymore but I still get the occasional inquiry about the adoption of our oldest daughter. In order to save future adoptive parents from having to read through posts on all sorts of things not related to adoption in order to find out about ours, I'll quickly say that you can find the journal of our trip to Ukraine in the November and December archives from 2006.
