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.

My Failed Attempt At Back to School Pictures

I am a planner.  I like to take care of tasks early and anticipate things that might get in my way.  So when it came time for back to school pictures, I made adjustments for the  60% chance of rain on the first day of school.   On Sunday, I ironed my kids clothes, fed them dinner early, and set out to a field to take pictures of them with their new backpacks and school clothes on the day before school started.  

I started with Sam and snapped the 5-10 pictures that I had promised him I would keep it to and then it happened.

The sky opened up and a random cloud unloaded buckets of rain right on top of us!

We were drenched!!! Our new back to school clothes were soaked.  My camera was soaked.  Their new backpacks were soaked and we were laughing so hard that we didn't care.

It was not at all what I planned for back to school pictures when I was trying to get ahead of the game, but it was memorable nonetheless.

That's awesome! It will be memorable and I pray that God will "rain" his blessings on those sweet kids during this school year! Love ya'll!
