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.

Ruthie's New Bed
It didn't hurt when I showed him a website where a woman (ana-white.com) had built a playhouse bed by herself.
Trent worked hard for over a month and turned our garage into a carpenter's workshop. The boys even helped him with measuring and using the nail gun and my job was painting.
The original bed did not have a slide with it, but Trent made the mistake of mentioning a slide to Ruthie and there was no turning back.
We finished just in time for her birthday and I think it turned out perfect.
Trent may even have a new hobby. When he finished the bed, he made 3 step stools for the kids and 2 benches for me.
Ruthie also loves her new reading corner.
Gotta go play now!
