Took my girl along to the grocery store last week. She picked out some corn to serve with dinner, then helped me pull off the husks and silk. As you can probably imagine, she was mighty proud to get this one done!

We’ve heard several different estimates of the number of orphans in the world.  153,000,000 is just an average of those estimates.  It is a number that I cannot even begin to comprehend.  It is heartbreaking. 

Before we had ever heard this number, our hearts were moved to learn more about adoption.  And though we thought our family was complete, we’ll be adding to it after all.

Not quite so ho-hum lunch

We have fallen into a lunch rut around here. It's fine, as the kids are happy, eating most of what's packed, and not complaining. Today, though, M asked for popcorn. And we have blueberries. So I decided it was a great day to try a new "sandwich" too. Wraps aren't usually successful, but M has already tasted hers (she wants to eat everything in sight this morning) and declared, "Mmm!". I will consider that a success, even if she pulls it apart and brings home bits after school today.
