Yep, we are all still alive and kickin' at the Tigerden! I know it has been far too long since I have been to my little bloggy home or visited with my little bloggy friends and I am going to TRY to do better. Every week, I tell myself I am going to get back on board and every week seems to slip by in a blur and I realize I have neglected this little corner of my world one more time.
Life has been full around here with school, guitar lessons, drum lessons, dance, two boys playing basketball, apartment ministry, church...
Tigercub is growing like a weed and isn't much of a cub anymore, he is, however, our comic relief. I wish so much that I would be diligent about recording some of his sayings on here...but by the time I find time to sit down and type...I can't remember what it was he said. Is that a sign of too many kids or too many years?
If you had an hour or six, I would get you caught up on all that has been happening around here...but you probably don't want to know how messy my kitchen is or how organized my...okay, who are we kidding...nothing around here is organized! I'm just gonna start with a clean slate and try to stay on top of things.
If you have been around here much in the past year or two, you will understand when I say it is Science Fair time! Aack! I am blessed to only have one child turning in a project this year, but it is a doozy. If you happen to be one of the blessed Facebook friends that helped us out, "GOD BLESS YOU!" This weekend, we will work on our board and polish up our paper and be done...yes, I say our because I have a lot of work invested in this baby. My fourteen year old might get the credit, but there is a piece of this project that is all mine! My tutorial students will all turn in their projects this week as well, so I'll be checking them twice and Friday is the big day! Whew!
But the BIG news around here is what God is doing in our family. You may want to sit down. Actually, I guess you are probably already sitting. I'm not going to go into the whole story...just suffice it to say that God has been working on Tigerfan and I...in a pretty big way. And while I never thought we would be saying these words, we have made the decision and begun the process of adopting a little girl from Uganda. We are super excited and super scared. In the next few weeks, I am hoping to begin to blog a little about what led us to this point, if nothing else as a record to show our sweet daughter someday. I'm sure you will be hearing a LOT about the journey as we begin and you will definitely be hearing some pleading for prayer, and if you happen to have fifteen or twenty thousand dollars laying around that you need something to do with, feel free to send it our way! :)
Really, we feel so honored that God would call us to be a part of caring for one of His precious little ones. In the past few months, our eyes have been opened to the tremendous blessing in sharing our plenty with the weak and the vulnerable. I know the road ahead will not be smooth or easy, but it will be beautiful as we get to become the hands and feet of our savior and put His words into action. I hope I have just a few people who have stuck around long enough to join us on our journey!
Anyway, it is time to go join Tigerfan for our weekly popcorn and M&M date! Can't wait to visit with y'all this weekend!
Don't forget to visit Home Sanctuary for more Coffee Talk!
