If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Adventures in Single Parenting

Trent is back from his trip to England and we survived his being away. Things were adventurous around here to say the least, but that is just the life and times of having 3 small kids. Trent's dad and step mom came to help out for a few days and I am quite confident they have slept very well since their departure.

Ruthie is recovering great and is back to causing trouble with her partner in crime across the street. Sweet little Haley has become Ruthie's best bud and they are so cute playing together. We have to watch them closely or they are sure to get into something they shouldn't like Jack's golf cart as seen below.

My other nut, Sam, is trying his hardest to become a Jedi. Thursday he asked me to teach him a back flip. I thought it would be cool to show him one, so one back handspring and one injured shoulder later, he decided I was pretty cool. He changed his mind today though and informed me that real Jedis can flip without putting their hands on the ground. Here is a short video of his attempts to train himself to be a Jedi.

Just found your blog through Naomi's blog. Your family is beautiful. Our daughter, Yana's, middle name is Ruth--for the same reason as you chose that name!

Many blessings to you,
