Camping

We had a fun weekend camping at the Ledges in Iowa. The weather was saying it was going to be so hot on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Friday and Saturday were beautiful. Sunday was hot, but thankfully, we were leaving then. Friday evening we had Walking Tacos and just hung out and had s'mores. Saturday we had some delicious pancakes and bacon cooked over the fire. Mmmm. Then we went on a hike into Ledges State Park. The road getting into it was closed to vehicles cause of the storms so we walked. In the afternoon we had a fun time swimming at the Boone Pool and then eating at Pizza Hut. It was really a lot of fun. We even had a visitor Friday night. A raccoon. It stole our Taco meat, hamburgers and cheese right out of our cooler. It woke Stephanie up so we watched it with a flashlight. I moved our tote with bread and stuff in it to the back of our vehicle. But, I didn't think about the cooler.

Mom and I are sooooo excited about the possibility of having 2 more grand children!!! We are praying for both of you in this process. We are also praying for Nathan and Chyann that if you are to be their parents that there will be a smooth transition. We are also praying for the financial aspect. God will provide! Just trust him!!

Tj and Stephanie. We are so excited for you both. We are praying that God would enable you to trust Him and we are praying that He will provide financially everything you need and more! With Will and Dawn having adopted kids and seeing how they have developed and adapted to the family has been a blessing. I am convinced that God gives a special blessing to those who choose to adopt. It is a blessing that no one else can experience! Hang in there and let us know if we can help. Love you guys!

I adopted six kids one time. Three of them were Cherokees and three of them were Tisatuaw. Apparently those two tribes are enemies and so all they did was fight. I had to put a stop to it when one of the older ones scalped one of the younger ones. This did not make me very happy :( I had to sell the three Cherokees, before you get all excited about me selling children you should know that I gave the money to a good cause, the Kenny needs a bigger house fund. It's a non-profit organization. Any donations you give will be tax deductible. Kids are great, you can make them do all kinds of work and you don't have to pay them. And if you adopt Indians, they get to go to college for free Thanks to good old uncle sam and the US taxpayers. That's why you should adopt Indians.
