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.

Finally my kids are part of an awesome school and I appreciate that more with Sam there this year as a Kindergartener.
This week they invited the Kindergarten parents to join P.E. . It was loads of fun balancing bean bags on our various body parts.
Sam takes in every ounce of life and I know so much more about his school now that I have been allowed to view it through his eyes and stories.
We are blessed to have our kids in such a great educational community and for all of the other communities we get to be a part of as well.
