I guess the craziness in my life can be measured by the length of time in between blog posts.  Summer is always the busiest time for our family but I love every minute of it.  Expecially the days filled with sunshine and fun in our backyard, where imaginations and little bare feet run wild.  We shared s’mores around the fire, tried to keep cool under the sprinkler and camped out, even if it was only a few feet from our back door.  There was soccer, vacation bible school, even a road trip to N.C. with lots of pajama days in between.

Of course, the biggest adventure of our summer was our journey to Ethiopia for Teagan.  It is hard to believe it has been three months since bringing our sweet little guy home and amazing to look back at the miles we have traveled together in this time.  It has been hardest and most wonderful thing I have ever done in my life.  I have discovered so much about myself, the things that I need to change, the ways I need to grow.  I am being stretched like I could never have imagined and I am learning to rely on my faith to get through my days and become the kind of parent that Teagan needs me to be.  Through the good times and bad, God is writing a story of love and hope in our lives and it is so special to be a part of this.  Every day I love him more and I realize what a precious miracle he is.  He blesses others with his smile and his joy everywhere that we go and I get to be the one to tuck him in at night.  Braden, Riley & Addie Lou are teaching me so much about love and forgiveness as they have adjusted to their new brother with open hearts and incredible grace and it is amazing to witness the strength of Teagan’s bond with his Daddy.  I am most proud that even through the hardest times, our family only grows closer.

Sharing a slideshow of his journey home and some of the special moments over the past few months like his first bath, first ice cream cone and first trip to the playground.  Such joy in such a tiny little body!
