One Day at a Time

This is quickly becoming my motto. :) I have been intending to update this blog for at least two weeks now (we've been a family of five for 4 weeks already)...but am just now getting around to it. I'm sure you're all wondering what I've been doing to waste away all the free time I have now that I'm done with grad school. I had great plans of using all this new free time to deep clean and organize my house, work on some sewing projects, go to story hour at the library with Brece, enjoy the summer weather with playdates at the get the idea. Somehow, along with not updating the blog, most of those things haven't happened either. Oh well! The house is sort of clean (some of the time) and I did make it story hour once with two toddlers in tow. The last four weeks have definitely been consumed with adjusting to life as a family of five. All in all things have gone pretty well. It has been a huge adjustment for all of us and we've all had our moments (adults included) but each day we are learning more about the kids' personalities and they seem to be adjusting really well to us. We've had lots of great help...people have come to stay with us, we've had lots of meals brought to us, and lots of other needs met. I'm also learning to trust that God will give me strength for the day at hand...and trying to learn to not worry about tomorrow or the next day. Definitely much easier said than done! So thankful for His grace and faithfulness!

I will try to upload some videos and/or pictures soon!

Tamra--you are an inspiration to me! I love your heart for these two kiddos who need a loving, stable home where they can be introduced to Christ. Many prayers for you.
