Well life is full of these lately. I am finding as I am trying to align my will to God's I am having to make significant changes in my life. For one - we are now foster certified. I have been hesitant about making this public everywhere because I don't want people to think we don't want to adopt any more and disregard us. Hence why I post and then quickly change my mind and delete the post. But I'm realizing that this is God's path for us and in the end it will all work out the way it should. So one of these days I am expecting a call and we should have a baby in our home. I wish I could post all about it right here, but that won't be possible. So I am seriously considering starting a private blog just for me so I can keep things documented should one of these babies become part of our family I want to be sure to have it all down. So while we will be having a new addition you probably won't be hearing too much about it.
Max is doing great and is getting taller and taller. It seems like he is constantly having growing pains! Some of which wake him up. The only thing that would console him was giving him Children's Tylonal. But now I use DoTerra's Deep Blue Rub and that seems to be doing the trick!

Max's speech has improved 100% We had him tested and he didn't qualify for the early intervention preschool because he has made so much improvement! So that is exciting for him. He will be starting Pre-School in August and I think he will enjoy the change.
Max is almost done with his swim lessons and is a natural fish! We are looking forward to lots of weekends in the pool this summer. He has also found a love for everything LEGO! I'm thinking a future trip to Lego Land will be in order next year.
Merrill is staying busy at work and traveling a bit here and there. He is no longer in scouts and is now a Primary Teacher. We are loving having him home more! And the ironic thing is two weeks after we bought a new Honda Pilot he gets released! Go figure.
That's all I can think of at the moment. I still have one more Disneyland post to put up soon!

I figured while we were at the beach we might as well attempt some pictures to update our walls. I seriously considered hiring a photographer, but the photographer I liked was $1700!?! So I decided to hand over my camera to my brother in law to snap some of the family and they turned out quite alright : ) I think this will become a tradition for us - visit the beach and take some pictures. Speaking of beach - Max LOVED it. He didn't want to leave and it almost made me wish we lived near the ocean. But that's what our family is for who lives there....right?
