Friday, I shall title you: Woke Up At 2am With A Kid Staring At Me Two Inches From My Face And My Heartrate Never Returned To Normal and Now I Have Been Dragged Out Of Bed By Excited Children. #iwokeuplikethis

I did not wake up like this.

It's been way too long since I did one of these - but y'all, don't be jealous that #iwokeuplikethis

I'm so glad @mcgeelapish got us a real newspaper subscription. I'm weirdly addicted to getting the paper in the morning and reading it with my coffee.

#adoption, #fostercare, loving when it's hard - all of these things are a type of redemption. A small piece, a reflection of what He has done for us. It's not supposed to be easy; it's supposed to be worth it. Loving when it's hard is Always. Worth. It.

You guys, I made each of the boys a @chatbooks of Instagram photos of them from their hashtags (#babydisasterface #stinkerface and #jacksonbeane) and gave them the books last night when we got home from vacation. I didn't think they'd care; plus we had just gotten out of the car after 7hrs and they had been begging to play Xbox for a week. I expected them to take one glance and then go play video games, but I snuck up to the playroom and this is what I found. They read every caption, looked at every page. Most of the pics, they had never even seen. They were totally enthralled. The memories and the moments in those books span back years farther than they can remember on their own; these books are priceless.

First full day of KIDLESSNESS!!!! All five are off having grandparent adventures, and we're finding our way through some deep emotional processing and trying to figure out who we are without 17 little people needing ALL THE THINGS every minute. It's weird. It's good. It's new and different. Who is this guy I do life with? I'm having fun and feels remembering. #lapishlife #marriage #fosterparents
