Autumn Fun~

                            Seems like summer has slipped by and Autumn has come already.

We have a busy October.....surgeries for one, genetics testing for another. In between homeschooling a few and finding our rhythm with #7. Which is a post for another time~

                                       Adoption isn't for the faint of heart. It is a journey.

So many firsts for our little 6 year old.....first lost tooth, first haircut, first wagon ride to the pumpkin patch.....

And these two.....goodness, I thought for sure Joshua would be close to Hope, who is only a year older than her....but he took to Rachel right away and I always find them close....giggling.

Conspiring, holding hands. I think he likes to look out for her. She is younger than him by 3 1/2 years. However they are emotionally about the same age.

Hope you are all having a great start to your fall. And if you think about it, say a prayer for our Gracie, she is having cleft surgery October 10. Hopefully her last.

And also Rachel, who will begin genetics testing once again in addition to a long list of medical tests.
