Here goes nothin'

"This is a strange place to live" has become a bit of a mantra in our home.  With four lively and independent thinking children, there is a lot of silliness around here.  David has likened it to an inpatient psychiatric ward - at any given point, there is usually one throwing a tantrum, one running around with underwear on their head, one ready for a nap and one dancing in the corner.  With the kids currently ages 2, 3, 4 and 7, the fun part is that there isn't any way to predict who is going to assume a given role next!  It's interesting to say the least.  There was a time when we fully embraced all of it.  It has been a rough transition bringing Zeke into our family and it has definitely changed the vibe around here.  We are working hard to get back to a place of "thriving in the chaos" and this blog will chronicle our journey.  We are asked on a daily basis how things are going and persistently asked if we have ever considered writing about it...others suggest a reality show.  We hope this will give some insight into what our adoption experience has been as well as just the daily challenges of heading up, what feels like, a mini corporation comprised primarily of little people.  Perhaps this may just be cathartic for us, regardless, we hope you enjoy getting a closer glimpse into our family - hopefully it won't make you run for the hills!
