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- Still Little

It happens every year about this time.  We start wrapping up another season of activities, I start making videos of pictures from their year, and then I grieve over how quickly they are growing up.  As I was cycling through this emotional routine this week, I was reminded several times that they are still very little.

Here's how...

They find joy in things like jumping over a pole with a bucket of water on their head.

...or spinning until they feel sick.

They can destroy a perfectly clean playroom in minutes

... and still sleep with all of their stuffed animals.  ALL of them.

They make faces on stage at preschool graduation

...and ask to wear their fireman rain boots on a perfectly sunny day.

Finally, when asked at preschool graduation what they want to be when they grow up,

they answer, "A Red Angry Bird".

They are still little but I still think they are growing way too fast.

Ahhhhh... so sweet. Flash forward a few years and you'll be where I am: one married off and another heading to college. Yes, it goes too fast.

Savor each day. Make good memories.
