Bath time

I asked Stephen to give Isabelle a bath and this is what I saw when he was finished. He loves that dog! In a manly way, of course. She looks like an ewok.

We just want to thank all of our faithful friends and family who have comitted to pray for us as we desire a child. We are so thankful for the encouragement and prayers that God has used to strengthen us throughout this process. He has gone before us every step of the way and prepared our hearts. I am so thankful for His love and compassion as we walk down the road that He has laid before us.
Many have asked where we are in the process and the answer is that we are still praying and waiting. We are praying that God shows us clearly what His will is for us. We would love to adopt. We pray that He provides the baby He wants for us either through adoption or pregnancy. We are excited to see where He leads.
During the school year last year Stephen and I both felt the Lord leading me to work only part-time next year. This was a hard decision because I LOVE teaching. However, God confirmed to us that we need to step out in faith and trust Him. I don't know His reason for me going to part-time but we pray that it is because He has prepared a baby for us in His timing. If not, then I trust that it will His plan be revealed in another way.
We want our friends and family to know that we appreciate them and their precious prayers!

Day at the Lake!

We had a great time yesterday celebrating Atticus' birthday at the lake with the Gill's and Watson's. We jet skied and cooked out until the wee hour of 9 o'clock. It was a blast! We went tubing and I am sore from holding on with all my might. Marcus had a little trouble stopping the jet ski at one point (see picture). I had some hard time turning the jet ski and flipped with Anna, Dina, and Jackson all on board. Poor Jackson!
