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- First Fishing Trip

Sunday Snapshot

I took Sam and Ruthie to Texarkana this weekend for a much overdue trip.  Jack and Trent stayed home for work and school.  Sam got a fishing rod for his birthday and wanted to take it along to see if his Papa would take him fishing.  I grew up fishing with my family on a lake behind my house so I knew this would be the perfect activity for my dad and Sam.

It all started with a lesson in how to bait your hook.

And then he started swinging casting

That took some practice

But eventually he mastered it

The first time a fish ate his worm, he was so excited because he thought that meant he caught something.

Then we waited

And waited some more but he never actually caught a real fish.

He still had a blast though and wait until I tell you about his next fishing trip the next day.

Oh and don't feel sorry for Ruthie.  She spent most of her time feeding the ducks

I have been thinking a lot lately about what it looks like to pursue healthy relationships.  Like what if every relationship I was in could...
