One Year!

I can't believe it has been one year!  One year since Ben and Eli met some of the Lowman gang!
This week we have been talking about then and now and the boys have shared their hearts....Eli said he loves belonging to a family....there have been many firsts too.  When they think something is quite odd, we just grab their hands and tell them, "Welcome to New Hampshire!"  We have laughed together, cried together, and been on many adventures together....together--the nicest place to be!

To celebrate this week....we did a usual short notice celebration when our plans changed because of some much needed rain.  We went with friends to an all you can eat Asian Buffet....and as usual, the boys had a competition with the all you can eat part....Ben surprise there!  He ate 7 plates....and no that number is not a typo!   These boys can eat!

Above photo was a first shot together picture but I just had to add this recent photo at one of our family favorite things to do....and no....I didn't give anyone any real notice that the picture was coming....can't you tell?  That is the best part ....just living our lives...nothing staged but loving one another and enjoying the adventure of it all!
So glad these boys walked into our lives!

Pick up

RWe were blessed to catch up with our friends at the arrival ofmt heir newest little one!  The Winslow's traveled to Bulgaria to get a sweet little one....the same day we dropped Darrell off to travel to Germany from Boston....we later met up with the Winslows in NH...a bit later in n the evening.
This is Grace sporting her welcome Home balloon the kids proudly picked out for her....we all love Grace.
Here is their Annabella...she is so sweet!  They said she reminded them a lot of our Becca.
Kiara making her laugh...we love her sweet heart towards little ones.
Here is was late and I know she was tired but I am sure it was good to be on home turf!

So excited for their family!

Fun Weekend

It's fall here and we have been super busy but took a bit of time out to visit the Annual a Touch-a-truck in our little town.  I even got to see the inside of an 18 wheeler....very cool.  We could believe the space inspire with storage, fridge and bunks.
Ben inside the ambulance....
Do you think these two were in an adventure?
She was giving everyone directions....good thing she wasn't in charge!

Such a pleasant morning with everyone!


This little gem asked to play outside but was instructed she could but she had to stay on the deck in the play area as we were almost ready for dinner and then a meeting at our home where people were on their way already.
When we called her for dinner...she was no longer on the deck.  We quickly located her in this delimma....

First day of school

A group photo of our first day this year....our kids have been really working hard and I have been so organized....both are huge blessings in our schooling.

Ellie is in dog school and Devon opted for his pjs....all good!









Everyone in our new school room.....many adventures awaiting us this year!

Fort Foster and the Cousins

What a glorious day at the beach...sand castles, crabs, finding treasures and playing with some of the cousins.

Eli and Kiara dignity in the sand....

Wasn't it beautiful?
Down to the water for castle making....

Look at all the busyness....we ended the evening with grabbing pizza for time!
