On Saturday we were blessed to spend the day with another fun adoptive family (The Summers-10+)playing in the freezing cold McCloud River with water run straight off Mt. Shasta.
What a crew of boys! and Yes I do consider my husband one of the boys, just missing Jeff!
Amani catching his breath with a smile in the freezing water.
Fani smiling, thinking, no way! I did eventually chase him in once, for which my husband threw me in full clothed! It actually felt great.
Our beautiful Hannah Belle did eventually get in too.
Most of the boys lined up trying to decide who was going to go first off the bridge.
So they decided on the pilings first.

Caleb in what he calls his Karate-Kid pose, mid-air.
Caleb touch down.
Caleb thinking that was not too bad.
Up to the bridge for a second look.
and Caleb took off so fast to keep from backing out, David missed it.
Amani preparing for touch down.
Most of the day Fani was happy to watch rather than be a dare devil and he did not really enjoy that cold water--still to much Africa in him:)
My and my wonderful husband.

What a day! What a blessing to spend the day talking with dear friends who understand the love and passion for orphans and the hurting as we do. A safe place to talk trauma, love, healing, compassion, and grace lived out daily. Real life!
May God bless your week as you seek to be His hands and feet in a hurting world.
