I just walked into the other room to get something...

and here we are, eight months later!  I swear they wrote the book "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie" after me. 

I have no idea where we left off, so I'll probably just ramble a know...until I get the hang of this blogging stuff again!  I did discover that you can merge two blogs!  How exciting that was for me since I no longer have to keep my old blog a secret!!!  So, now if you read something about Jacob or anything else that has happened since I started this little blog, you can look it up!!

And here is the reason we had to go private for awhile:

This is our newest and final addition to our family!  Aaron Jones is our 2 1/2 year old bundle of boy!!  He has been with us for awhile, and I will share his story soon.  God orchestrated this boy's placement in our home.  First of all, he's a boy.  Secondly, he's a boy!  A boy in need of a home.  So thankful God chose our home for him!  Emma loves her "Eh-non"!

We just finished a week's worth of homeschool convention...WOW!  SO much work and we are SO tired, but it is SO worth it to see all the homeschooling families and how they are blessed by the convention.  We had 6000+ people come through the two conventions, one here in OKC and one in Tulsa.  We made new friends and laughed with old friends.  I am so amazed at how God chooses to bring people into your life that bless and encourage. 

That's all I have...I'm in convention recovery this week!!  I'll leave you with one of my new favorite pictures:
