Umm, I Don't Think We Are In Uganda Anymore


 No fist shaking or soap boxes, no heart-felt monologue about adoption or orphan advocacy in this post. It speaks for itself. We woke up this morning with nearly 7 inches of snow on the ground and the kids couldn't wait to get outside. I think the kids ate breakfast with their boots and hats on. Yes, we live in Atlanta. Yes, the one in Georgia. No, I don't know what happened to Global Warming, go ask Al Gore.

If you have a slow connection and opt to watch only one of these videos, watch the third one. It sums up the entire day. Otherwise, enjoy them all.











We warmed up by the fire, everyone had a hot bath and are now snuggled in bed - no doubt dreaming of speeding down the front yard heading toward the front porch at breakneck speed and laughing the whole way. With school out again tomorrow and none of the snow gone (and a fresh layer of ice on top of it thanks to the freezing rain) we will be back out tomorrow doing it all again.

I can't believe you have 3 kids sitting in a circle around the fire.. AMAZING.. thanks for sharing the videos... the kids are all precious! We, too, have had a blast.. and the opportunity to connect with some neighbors we never get to see or spend time with. God is so good to give us another week of Respite!! Keeping you and yours in my thoughts and prayers!

Ahahahahaha! Go ask Al Gore. Classic.

I love hearing Joseph speaking in Luganda...he sounds so much like my Joseph. We need to get those Josephs together, yo!
