Running Some More

Little Man showing off Samuel’s medal

[I had this post all scheduled to go for Saturday morning, but I messed up a bit and it didn’t publish. Here it is, a bit late, but I love the pictures so much that I had to share it. We had a fantastic time in Seattle–the race was great and we met the most amazing people. I came home to two little boys who need lots of love and attention, so I don’t know if I’ll make it to my blog tomorrow. I’ve gotten some great responses to last week’s Tuesday Topic. Please feel free to send more comments and I’ll post them all as soon as my kids are settled back in. If you have emailed me, I am behind on email too, but I’ll reply as soon as I get some quiet time to send a thoughtful response. Thank you so much for your comments and emails. ~Lisa]

Today is the Race Against HIV/AIDS and I am running with five of my girls! I’ll give you a report next Tuesday after I am home.

Thursday Russ and I took the four little ones to cheer Samuel and Rusty on at their X-Country race. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time. Samuel placed third in his race and got a medal, which was extra fun.

The little kids loved playing outside with us.



Although the boys are homeschooled, our local school district has welcomed them to play sports and it has been a great experience. I love seeing my guys run!

Thank you for stopping by.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    Great pictures of the boys. We also enjoy the privilege of homeschooling and running at the public school, a great way to be 'salt' and 'light'.
