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.

Sunday Snapshot- The Middle

Ni Hao Y'all

It is hard being a middle child (so I hear) and it has been especially hard for our middle one the last 2 weeks because both his older and younger siblings have had surgery.  Sweet Sam has not complained a bit about being shipped off from place to place while we took care of the others. 

So when he wanted to be in a karate tournament today - the day after his sister got home from the hospital, an hour after church let out, and on Halloween, I thought "sure, why not"!

He had a little difficulty getting used to the mouth piece and I wondered if it would look like a piece of chewed gum when he was done.

He got it figured out just in time to suit up for his match and WIN! Yeah Sam!

We went to the park afterwards for me to check out a new photo shoot location

And once again Sam was a trooper

Then we headed home just in time to get ready for the Fall Festival.  I love that middle child.

But then with a smile like that, how could I not be crazy about him!

He's precious--and, as a middle child myself, it's not all that bad. You get the best of everything--a big sibling and a little one. :)
