Spring breaks adventures

Today we went to the museum and a wonderful walk through museum of sorts. Ranching Heritage center is a place to walk through and look at houses and other buildings from pioneers who settled in this part of the country.  Great fun for me to look back at history and see how far we have come.  The kitchens in the homes were almost non exsistant.  Amazing they got everything done in those small homes with electricity or running water.

Kevin and Claire had fun finding pine cones and chasing the jack rabbits that dared to run across our path. Saw a fox trying to catch a dinner treat with one of them, but the rabbit got away.  Whew! I would have hates to explain the circle of life to the little ones. The older girls (Hannah had her bestie Amanda with her) loved all the picture taking opportunities that the museum and ranch had to offer.

Yesterday we went to see the Lorax....I didn't know it was a musical, nuff said. It was good to hold all the childrens attention. Then we played a rousing game of Headbandz and laughed our heads off. Kevin kept telling us what our cards were on our heads when he was trying to guess what HIS card was. Too funny. Hope the weather continues to do great, we have a picnic bike ride planned tomorrow. I will mostly be picnicing since I don't have a bike....Claire will be bike riding tomorrow.  We have tried to eat at a resturant everyday that we haven't eaten at before, so it kinda feels like we are out of town. Dad goes back to work tomorrow and the older girls will go to Amanda's house...should be quieter and calmer with just 2 kids the rest of the week.

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
