This is one of my favorite new songs. Aren't we all adopted?? On Third Day's website they asked for adoptive families to send in a picture of their adopted children to be used during their concerts while playing this song--- sooooo, I thought, I can do this- ha! 3 kids and a camera and an adopted sign..... this is what I got! But we had fun..... and I sent two to Third Day! (I've tried to load the pics, but they won't load- going to try to load them seperately.) I am beginning to think there is something wrong with my blog- or maybe it's the blogger.....;)
I can't figure out why my pictures on the previous 3 posts won't show- there's just a little box- if anyone reading this has any idea how to fix this- please leave me a comment- unless I'm the only one not seeing them, then tell me that too- thanx!
Harrison had a dance to go to at his preschool. It was called the Fancy Schmancey Dancey- and I had the most handsome date! Mom's took their sons and Dad's took their daughters! I felt a little like a Jr. high kid again- but we had fun! I can't believe my sweet boy will go off to Kindergarten this August....:(
Our smallest Valentine. Isabelle got to attend a Princess shin dig with some friends- I was supposed to go but had the FLU really bad..... sad to miss it. Here's daddy helping her with her shoe. I can't believe how grown up she is getting. Here is Jillian's second mama-
