The Dust is Settling. . .

No, we haven't fallen off the face of the earth just in case anyone has been wondering! The past few weeks have been incredibly busy with doctors appointments, therapies, birthdays and visits from family, but I am very happy to report that we are settling into a nice routine after the chaos of the past few months!

When we aren't running to and from doctors appointments and therapies or running various errands, we can usually be found at home. While I am typically the kind of person who likes to get out, I have tried to keep these past few weeks as low key as possible for my kids. Joshua and Evan have obviously had huge adjustments to make, but Maren, Lukas and Jacob, who have always had a good routine and structure prior to our adoption adventures, have also had to make some adjustments and settle back into a routine. Things are going well on the home front and it seems as though the dust is finally beginning to settle (for now at least. . .once Josh and Evan are BOTH in therapy and we have various surgeries on the schedule as well, things are likely to get a bit chaotic again).

For your viewing pleasure I had added several more pictures of life over the past few weeks. I hope you enjoy them. . . .

I truly love your family pictures. It is an inspiration to all of us, still waiting for our children, from where ever they come from.
