Last weekend the whole family and princess Francis piled into the car and we headed down to Longview. We had two reasons for this trip.

Counting Every Blessing

Today is the anniversary of us joining our adoptive family. We packed up the body's children, our dog, and we went into hiding from the abusive husband. Well, semi-hiding. That's a long story but it's the 3 year anniversary. The kids call it our Extraction Day (Naked and Afraid reference). It certainly felt like an… Continue reading Counting Every Blessing
