it does a heart good...

Lots to say about this weekend.  Far too much for me to write about it all tonight (without hitting the chocolate in the Easter baskets for assistance in staying up anyway).

But I couldn't go to sleep without sharing something that made my heart smile.  During a family picnic at the park this weekend, three of my kids got to play with a parachute.

Grandma leads the beanbag/parachute game with her five grandkids plus three "great nieces and nephews"
Little did I know that my youngest who still lives across the sea did too...


...playing with a parachute no less!
(A very kind soul sent me the jpg files of the four pictures.  Click on either for the link to Daniel's foster home site scrapbook to see the rest.)

Sometimes it's the little things that do a heart good!

WHEN are you going to get that boy? :)

I have been reading your blog, but not commenting- life just seems to busy for lots of computer time these days! BUT, I am longing for China, DYING to see Daniel with you all, and REALLY excited to travel back to Urumqi (if only via your blog....GOSH, how I miss the place that was SO hard for us to be in while we were there!!!).

Praying for speedy travel for you! Daniel is getting so big- and he is stinkin' adorable!!!! :)
