Fun at the Doctors?? Thank you for your prayers

So today we had an afternoon slot for the doctor's office. When I say afternoon slot...I mean the whole afternoon! That is what happens when you have 9 people who all need a physical so we can move on with our next adoption.
So Jason says....let's take the camera. I said "for the doctor's office?" He says- "yes"....I say "why we didn't do this last time when we had 8". His reply "well last time we didn't have a blog"
So here it is fun blog loving family .... our doctor pics.
So.....our wonderful doctor a Christian which is always nice to be on the same page about life in general. Anyway....being who she is took in other patients that were walk ins because they were pretty sick. So our family was there- 3 hours! heard (read) it correctly- 3 hours of fun in the doctor's office. Thank God I am an experienced mom and had gummy bears, licorice, coloring books, twistables (the twist up coloring pencils- they are great!), and loads of board books, cars, etc. too.
All in all our kids did really well. I mean why shouldn't they- they are wonderful kids!!!!
Jonathan had to get 2 shots though. Poor thing- that is probably why he doesn't have a pic in these - he was crying.

Well, the good news is that we are one step closer to our little one waiting for us!!!! YEAH!

Thank you as well to all who have been praying for us. Our decision has been made, and although I would rather not share it with everyone (confidentiality reasons)- we feel at peace with it. It is definitely not the decision I wanted to make the way we did, but I feel like it is the correct one non the less. We appreciate all those who have helped with prayer. Makes us feel like our decision was wrapped up in everyone's blanket of prayers- THANKS!!!!!


  1. Looks like a great day! hhhmmm well that's an enticing tidbit. ;o) Prayers for sure! Can't wait to hear what God has planned for you!!

  2. Congrats on your upcoming adoption!!!!

  3. We're right there with you! Thankfully, our boys have summer birthdays and all just had physicals so we just had to take the forms to be signed. I always wonder what germs we're picking up as we wait around the doctor's office. Ewww!

    Hooray for the pending arrival of your new little one! To God be the glory. What a beautiful family He masterfully crafted together!

    Love and Blessings,

  4. Love to see the smiles on your kids faces... and yours. Keep the pictures and posts coming!! Tara

  5. Cute pics! We went to the Dr. today. I brought crayons and let the kids draw on the protective paper sheets they put on the examining table.It was fun!

  6. Hey just found your blog while hopping from one to another.

    Your family is beautiful. From the "descriptions" you have by each of your children it sounds like you must have your hands full. ;)

    Blessings to you all!
