Brief update…

Long time, no blog post. I would love to say that this is because we have been busy saving the world, fighting injustice and righting wrongs, however the truth is slightly less glamorous. It feels like we haven’t moved on much since early days- although the smell of poo in the house does subside at times.

We are adapting to being a family of five, with less sleep and energy than before.

It is a character building time- I feel hugely in need of the fruit of the Spirit and strength from God. At the very least I want to enjoy this time with little ones and not simply get through it. On that front Roz has been enjoying some smiles from Caleb, we are both appreciating Evie’s kisses (mouth open, tongue out) and I went to Chloe’s nursery’s fathers day event on Monday. It was great to see her singing with her class.

We have managed to get out quite a few times in the last month, but there is always a nagging feeling that we have left someone behind- I have to keep on counting the children to make sure we haven’t left one somewhere. In our Church there are a couple of families that have 8 children. I do not understand how they get organised!



  1. Hang in there you two – the first 18 years are the worst! 😀
