Gotta love some Skype!  I will be updating our website daily or as much as the internet service in the hotels allow.

July 4th

What to do when you have a total of 14 kids??  Well, it can make two days feel like seven.  We had a blast with friends and the kids enjoyed it even more. We are now focusing on getting ready to travel in one week.  The butterflies are starting to set in and the nerves are taking over.  I will miss my babies at home ALOT but know they will be taken care of.  I am so anxious to meet Chaning. Luggage has been packed and repacked and I'm sure will be repacked again.  I am just going down my list of to do's and hope they all get done in time.
 
I will be posting our itenarary as soon as I receive confirmation of it this week.  I cannot wait for Chase to experience this.  We will be visiting Chaning's orphanage and finding place.  Stay tuned for all the trip details....

Carson's Birthday

We celebrated Carson's 5th birthday with friends and family.  The older kids celebrated by partaking in a mud fight.  This year we have moved up from mud riding to just a plain out mud slinging.
