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.

This camera has faithfully served me well. Last night as we were going to sleep, Trent laughed at me for being a little sad to see my camera go. What can I say, I guess I am sentimental.
So like the man who made me sit through the dog caring lesson, I am going to do a digital photography lesson with the new owner of my camera. Poor girl. Maybe in 12 years she will understand.
I wonder if Jack will be as sentimental some day over his 1st guitar. These were taken when Trent was teaching him chords the other day.
