Oldie but goodie.

These were taken the day Brandon Hatmaker brought Beniam home from Ethiopia. This adoption was such a long, heart-wrenching ordeal. I remember sitting on Jen's porch when she got her 10am bazilliionth phone call from the adoption agency saying again "sorry, no good news". 
The day when Ben got off that plane in Austin was such a celebration for SO many reasons. 
I love the pure JOY you see in the Jen's face on this day. This is one amazing family. Brandon and Jen are incredibly gifted in so many areas. They deserve tons of joy.

nacho average mama?

So about every other week there will be a time when Cam will pass me in the house and give me a look.  A look that says "We on? You ready?!" and then before you know it it's on.  Full on wrestling.  or as my in-laws from TN say it - wrastling.   We've had wrestling battles for years now.   We have so much fun.  I mean, it's really serious, but it is FUN.  Up until about 6 months ago, I have always been able to take him down pretty easily.  Now that he is bigger than me it has become a lot harder.  Like now we work up a sweat.  Sometimes things will even get broken.  The other kids love to watch and root us on.  Luke just stands off to the side and smiles nervously.  
I asked the kids the other day if something happened to me what would be the one thing they remember about me and one of the things they all said was "how you wrestle cam".  I imagine most moms don't have this role, but I am so thankful I do.

We used Carol with Have a Great Dog! to train our Rottweiler, Axel. She is really really good. We learned so much from her. If you have a dog that needs training you need to call her.
