Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

My Big School Girl

It seems like such a short time that we were in China bringing home our baby. And, today, that baby, Josie-Tatum had her first day of kindergarten. She went to pre-K last year, but she seemed so grown up today. She gets to ride to school with Mama, and she's at Mama's school. WHile our school is HUGE, over 1100 students, her room is very close to mine, so Mama could peep in once during the day. I looked in the window of the door, and she was enjoying herself playing in centers.

I took this picture of JT with her teacher. Funny, Caleb and Brandon are both SENIORS. Yikes! They pretended to be jealous that I was taking the camera to school to take JT's picture, but when I offered to take theirs, they changed their minds.

I left Ellie sleeping in the room with Whitney. Her college classes won't start until next.

I had a good first day, too. I enjoyed getting to know my students today. Their personalities are all unique.

And, tonight we get to watch the Opening Ceremonies!

God is so gooooooooooood, all the time!
