My prayers are with the fathers and mothers of Manchester.

The man @greglauren teaching our littles how to create outside the lines. Cora keeps asking if I'm ready to learn how to "paint like Greg".

Move prep is in full swing.
Almost ready to for the new house.
These little packing elves make all the difference. I moved 7 times in 3 years before I was married but for me and Sueann this is only our second move in 7 years. One of us is loving this.

Cora wanted to treat @focho to #mothersday breaky at @dennysdiner. What a blast. Oh, and I swear I didn't convince my kid to pick a cheap place. And oh, there was a line out the door. #hashbrownstho

Happiest #mothersday to my baby mama. What an amazing mother you are. You are master chef, logistics, security, transportation, education, life coaching, lodging, first aid and deep love all wrapped into one person. You're an entire organization in one human person. Thank you for making a family with me.

To my mom!
#HappyMothersDay.
3 bio kids, 36 foster and 8 adopted kiddos later and I've still never met anyone like you. I love what @annelamott said about Mother's Day, but any excuse I get to celebrate my mom, I'm taking it. You're the absolute most selfless person I've met in the world. Thank you for being the all around fiercest mother bear alive. Thanks for being mom to all of us and grandma to 11 more. So grateful to be your kid. Happy Mother's Day.

We are going to miss this view.
On Monday we close on a new house. After 7 years, 2 kids, 100's of dinner parties and a million memories in this house...we are moving. I'm so grateful for this place where we learned how to make a home. We are going to miss the neighbors, the coyotes, the deer we call "Pickles", the guy who yells at all our house guests for parking in his spot, and the street that makes you feel like you're on Safari. Here's to new adventures, new memories and a new place to call home.

Celebrated this kid's FIFTH birthday this weekend. Can't believe how fast time goes. She's going elementary school and applying for colleges and planning her career and I just need it all to slow down a beat.

On a train with a beautiful lady.

21 years ago this guy came home and became our family. He brought joy and adventure and countless hilarious stories to us. He has overcome odds, challenges, statistics, more surgeries than he can remember and everything in between. This weekend he graduated with a bachelors degree. He is my brother, by buddy and my inspiration. We love you Matt. WE ARE SO FREAKING PROUD OF YOU!! πŸ‘¨πŸΌβ€πŸŽ“πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ’―πŸ’―

Once we came home...
Every night of sleep and waking hour of our lives changed. Everything. It was like waking up to the rest of my life. Happy Birthday to the brightest light in our world.
@jkoehler shot this.

5 years ago today.
The most stressful day of my life.
A celebration turned to chaos.
Her dramatic entrance into this world left a mark on all of us. We received flowers that day with a card that read: "and suddenly, the world is better." No truer words were spoken about her. Grateful today for all the prayers, doctors, ICU nurses, family, friends and this Giraffe that watched over our little Cora that day. Happy Birthday little one, your strength and beauty make everything better.
