Hebrews 12:1-2
"...let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith..."

The one thing that our older kids have said about our adoption process is that they wish we would have done it "sooner".  I know with Devin away at college he feels like he misses out quite a bit on all the happenings around here.  He comes home when he can but, with his school golf schedule, we haven't seen him much in the past several weeks.  He is done with school today and will be moving back home for about a month.  So many of his friends have been asking about the boys, that I decided to load them up and go visit their big brother for the morning.  Devin met us at the car and this is what happened after....

This picture is PRICELESS to a mom's heart.

Going down the hall to Devin's dorm room.  When we opened the door, there was a room full of Devin's friends to see the boys.  Needless to say, the boys were the BIG entertainment...and they LOVED the attention.

Jayden peeking out on Devin's bed--his was the top bunk.
How do college kids entertain a 2 and 3 yr. old?  First  you start with a box--make it a tunnel and then put the boys in it and call it a boat...a car...whatever.  You make them paper airplanes to fly around the room.  You introduce them to their first video games (cuz that is what all college students do, right?).

Then you take paper plates and punch out eye holes and the mouth and use your handy dandy painter's tape and tape it to their head.  So funny!  The Cardinals' outfits were from one of Devin's friends (and his mom)--thanks Shawn!

Eating in the dining hall.  They LOVE ketchup!

You also must have your picture on the school mascot...go Bulldogs!

We had a GREAT morning with Devin and all his friends.  I was grateful for the time too as I felt like I had a few hours of rest as all the college kids entertained the boys.  We have had two really good weeks that I feel is because so many people are lifting us up in prayer.  Thank you!
