Keeping Up With The Jones'

My Photo

Brandon and I have been married for almost 13 years, have two beautiful children, soon to be three! We are adopting from Ethiopia and couldn't be more excited to start this new chapter!

Long time, no talk

Well, it's been quite a while (in fact, nearly a year) since I've written any posts on here. It's not for lack of trying though! I think that's what happens when you have an old computer that takes forever to download pictures. Sometimes it posts and sometimes it doesn't. Oh well.

I will really try to be better about posting though, if for no other reason than my children will have SOME sort of "scrapbook" they can look back to. I am terrible at scrapbooking and keeping photo albums so this will just have to do.

What is new and exciting? Madelyn's in 3rd grade and doing awesome! She was in a drama performance in March and did unbelievably well! We are so proud of her! I'll see if I can somehow post the link to her singing. Nolan is doing quite well in school too. We are so proud of the progress he's made this year. We love his teacher, Mrs. Carrington, and hope that he has the same type of teacher next year.

We are still waiting for a referral for a little boy from Ethiopia. We had put ourselves on hold for quite some time, due to finances but we realized that we weren't putting our faith in God regarding that situation. We do feel led and called to adopt and if we believe that then we have to believe that He will provide for us when the time comes to pony up the cash. Where is our faith, right? I have asked myself that question many times. All I can say that is that we were in a very rough spot and we're slowly coming out of it but that shouldn't matter. We know that we have to be obedient to Christ and we know He called us to this. We will follow Him.

K, so I think I added the link of Madelyn's solo. Hopefully I did it correctly and it works.
