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.

Maggie Takes T-town

Over Memorial Day weekend we went to Texarkana to introduce Maggie to her Papa and Bee.

During my 3 days there I failed to get a picture of the kids with their Papa and Bee, but I did get one of them with their GrandMary and Melo.

My sister came over from Shreveport and brought her boys to meet Maggie.  The kids played Clue and Ruthie loved it most of all.

Finally, we went to Spring Lake Park to play and feed the ducks.  I think Jack is having a stand off with one in the bottom pic here.  I bet Jack won.

Maggie didn't quite get feeding the ducks and would consume every other piece herself.  She would them say, "Mmm" as to rub it in that she was getting the bread and not them.  We are still not a fan of having competition for our food (even if the competition is a duck).

For every ounce of toughness that Ruthie has, Maggie has 2 ounces of caution.  She doesn't like slides, being hung upside down, or apparently swings either.

It was a great trip.  My kids love Texarkana and we don't get there near often enough.

I have been thinking a lot lately about what it looks like to pursue healthy relationships.  Like what if every relationship I was in could...
