Soccer in the HEAT!!

Today the big boys played in the local Haley Palmer Soccer Tournament! It is to raise money for cystic fibrosis in honor of Haley Palmer, a 7th grader that was taken way too early but has left an incredible mark on our community!! It was seriously HOT out there!! Not to mention, I am hugely preggo! The kids had a great time and even got a visit from nana and papa to watch them play!! Conner's team got first place in their bracket!! He was very excited but was ready to be done!! We love our coaches and the time they spend with the kids! Its been so good for all of the big kids!

Sales on the adoption t-shirts are going great and I ask that you would share this with everyone you know!! Some people don't understand why a family our size would want to bring another child into our lives and some have vocalized that to us, but we know without a doubt that this is the path God has set us on. Not only are we able to walk out James 1:27 but we are able to show our children what Pro-Life really means and why we should care for orphans! I have seen several people use the analogy of paying a ransom for your child when speaking of adoption. Unfortunately, adoption does cost more than the average person has sitting around, but who wouldn't do whatever they had to do to bring their child home? Thats why we have utilized Scentsy and t-shirts and anything else we can think of that is going to bring our baby home to us! We know that God will bless each one of you for sowing a seed into this as well!!

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer and staying as cool as possible!! I am convinced that Oklahoma has two temperatures: freezing cold or Burning hot!!! This whole week looks like its going to be HOT!!!
