School outside on this cool grey Fall morning. My favorite kind of days. #vivianjosephinexinhua
I am so proud of my girl. She placed 1st and Best of Class at the Titus County Fair with the book she cut and folded. But honestly I'm more proud and in awe of her hard work and determination it took to finish it as well as another book she did. When this girl does anything she is on it and pushes through to the end even if it's difficult, seems overwhelming and tedious, without ever a complaint. Oh how I wish I was like her in this way! Way to go Vivi Jo!!!! #vivianjosephinexinhua

We have back to back Forever Family Day's at our house. Seven years ago today in the country of China, province of Henan, and city of Luoyang there were 2 very handsome and very nervous young teens that stepped into the adventure of a lifetime. Leaving everything they knew, friends, food, language, culture, etc. to come to a foreign land of new beginnings, with not knowing how things would turn out. They were so very brave! I've had so many people ask if bonding was difficult adopting young teen boys. They were surprised when I said, "not at all!". We are so close and have such a tight bond that honestly I forget we haven't had them forever. So today we want to celebrate Tate and Elliott but most importantly we thank God for bringing them into our lives and making us a family of 9. WE ARE BLESSED!!! We love you Elliott Draper Baobao and Tate Olson Wenchun more than you will ever know!!

The Gift of Life

I didn't give you the gift of life,
But in my heart I know.
The love I feel is deep and real,
as if it had been so.
For us to have each other,
is like a dream come true.
No, I didn't give you
the gift of life.
Life gave me the gift of you. #tateolsonwenchun #elliottdraperbaobao #happyforeverfamilyday

Ten years today a 22 month old named Dang Yousong walked into our lives and we were forever changed, for the better.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139:13-16

We love you Max Cole Yousong Lester!

This girl's cup is always half full. I have a tendency to feel overwhelmed with huge projects (ex. painting this house). But nope, not Vivi Jo, she works so hard and pushed through whatever it is she's doing without a negative word or complaint whatsoever. I told her today that one of the things I love about her is that she always looks on the bright side and she said, well mom you've always told me to look on the bright side of things and I thought, goodness..I'm glad she does what I say and doesn't follow my actions.😬 I need to take some lessons from my own "Pollyanna". I'm so thankful for this girl!!! #vivianjosephinexinhua ❤️

It is 8:30 and Vivi is still doing her school work for next week. She did stop long enough to eat dinner and then she was right back at it. Paul laughed and I did too when I heard myself say...."Seriously, she's got to stop studying!!!" 😂😂😂 In all my years of raising kids, that's the first time I've ever said that. HAHA!!

More from the wedding reception. Right when the DJ gave the announcement for everyone to get on the dance floor and before anyone had a chance to get out there, Calvin ran out and dropped into a jazz split and held it for the longest time!😂😂😂 He started the party off right!!!🕺🏻💃🏻
