"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls knows that we know, and holds us responsible to ACT"...Proverbs 24:12

Hmmm...since #3 has joined us I seem to have lost my desire and creativity in blogging...it was quite exciting posting durring the adoption journey because of all of the news (or lack of at times:)
And then I wondered about changeing the blog name because it's really not a 'journey to sova' anymore...she's HOME! :) Not to mention that journey is spelt wrong...but I dont want to create a new one because I like having our India posts on here...every now and then I peek back and reminisce of meeting our Indian princess :)

Not much going on-
As you can see our kitchen table has been getting alot of use...is spring almost here? !? Actually I have been latly amazed at how the kids have been playing so great together...it may be the best feeling a mom can have to see and hear her kids playing so nicely and actually hear them speak kind and loving words...quite fullfilling! (but notice the word amazed....dont let me fool you:)
While I was cleaning up lunch Jacob deceided to put the little ones down for a nap by himself. He read them both a book and tucked them in seperately...I was overhearing everyting but I didnt believe it would really happen. It did...they both fell asleep w/out me ever having to go in..amazing.

Sova Grace is battling her 1st American cold...and battling her pants...I was cracking up- I overheard her in the other room saying, "Not Again! Sova's pants fall ALREADY!"
Ya see we have this pants issue...size 4T no matter what kind fall down-even w/ a belt...but 3T leaves her w/ extreme highwaters...she is a string bean- w/out pants :) (tights work...so dresses it is...and after 2 boy's everyone knows I dont mind that)

Jacob is waitng for his 1st tooth to fall out (any day), he had his 1st karate belt test and will be moving up to the dragons next week, and he is amazing me w/ his math and reading ability lately...something clicked in him and he is cruising...what used to take us an hour to get through takes 20 min :)

Caleb...I am avoiding...
One night I sat down w/ him and picked up an 'action figure' and started playing ....
It was a night I wish to claim back...I kid you not- he must have thought that was the coolest thing ever- because he will not stop asking, "mama you want to play with me?" in that cutest voice ever... How can I say no right? So I feel that mommy guilt come on and I take off those dish gloves and play. (he takes out several Different action figures/characters that, "all live in this house" and I just say, 'wow cool you can fly army guy...can we be friends?' (hence the 1st picture..Im the meer cat on the right)
It's the little things right? He get's so excited that he actually stutters.
Of course I had 1 on 1 before w/ Caleb- but I guess not so imaginitive...he is now obsessed and is my official stalker.

HA! It cracked me up about Caleb...I made the same "mistake" giving the 4 year old I watch a puppet show with action figures from his top bunk...he now cries if a day goes by that I do not play with him in his room (and come up with all the creative scenarios!)
And poor Sova...I feel her bean pole pain.
Notice that I am aware when you blog, even though it is once a month, because I faithfully check everyday hoping to see my turner sweeties! You need to just copy and save your previous entries and blog about whatever under your new title!
OK I apologize for the record-breaking long comment. It's all pent up from the lack of posts.
