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.

That Mind and the Questions it Comes Up With

Having the kids home for the summer has been so much fun.  One thing I have especially noticed is the number of off-the-wall questions Sam asks me in an 8-hour period.  I made it a point to remember as many as I could from 6-9 the other night.

Lets see there was, "Do sharks eat us because we look like seals or because they are scared?"

And, "Why did God create Satan?"

Followed by, "Who is the tallest man who ever lived?"

I loved, "If I had $50,000 could I buy a circus?"  I have no idea where that came from.

He wouldn't accept my, "No," answer for, "Can snakes bite through glass?"

There is always a math question in there and tonight's was, "How many seconds are in a leap year?"

And right before he went to bed he asked, "Why can I hold my breath and live but if you cut my head off I would die instantly?"

I love that kid but every now and then I need a break from all the questions!
