Road Trip Wrap Up!

Things were so crazy when we got home from our little adventure that I didn't get to finish up telling you what we did!!! When we left off we were at Embassy Suites in OKC. The girls had one more fun sleep over with Lauren.

The next morning everyone got ready to go. All the girls did so great getting things together and being helpful.

Even Kaiya helped!!

Everyone helped push- well except Kaitlyn. Apparently she decided this was the best time to catch up on some reading!!!
We had so much fun with you Lauren. You are a precious treasure and we love you!!!!!

Next it was off to see my dear friend Amy. Amy is one of the best things that has happened from my blog adventure. Amy started following my blog back when I was in process with Zoe. She had 4 tummy kids and 1 adoption under her belt at that point. She basically liked my blog cause she thought I was fun and a maybe just a little CRAZY cause I was adopting older..... UNTIL...... God told her she should adopt an older child. LOL!!! So she e-mailed me and an amazing friendship was born.

She went on to adopt the wonderful Mya and now sweet K. I, of course, have added Zoe and Kaiya. This year I got to go on an amazing mission trip to Eagle's Nest Orphanage in Guatemala with her.
I just love this lady. I KNOW God sent her to me! She is such a support to me. I learn so much from Amy. I truly admire the way she parents her children. She is a Proverbs 31 type of woman. I was in awe spending the night in her home. She has 7 children and her home is peaceful and fun and pleasant. Her children are so sweet! They are amazing.

I love how God uses the internet for good! I am thankful for my blog friends too! (although it sounds like I could use a solid week of Amy boot camp.... wish my house were peaceful!! or even had a hint of Prov. 31!!hehe)
Great pics. My absolute faves are the two of the girls pushing the luggage, and the one of KK reading. SO fun.

What a fun time! And what special friendships. I am just amazed when I see Kaiya. She has settled into your family so well. Here she is on a road trip and she just looks like it is a natural thing for her. Hope you have a good week!
