we have this conversation at least once a day

me: oh look, what is this one?
her: a cow!
me: this one's pink, it's a pig.
me: what do pigs say?
her: moo!


a new adventure

our little family is doubling in size. maybe today, maybe tomorrow, we're not sure of the timing yet but i'm excited, and terrified! somewhere in town are a two year old girl and three year old boy who will be joining our family for an indefinite period of time.

we don't know their names, or what they look like, and i can't wait to meet them!


our teen went to be with her siblings at the beginning of june. she's in a really great home with a wonderful foster family and it was good to see her reunited with her sister and brother.


2 kids, 2 adults, 2 large dogs... i think i see a van in our future. not sure how i feel about that.
