Well, I’ve got a release tonight and I’ll need to be in the office until at least 6:30pm, maybe a little later – so I might be a wee bit late getting the fire lit. If you show up, and I’m not there yet – go ahead make yerself at home – you know the routine. If you don’t know what I’m referring to – every Friday night at 7:30pm I head out behind the house and start a fire. Then I sit around to see who shows up, and I’m never......

Yep – that’s correct. They took off yesterday and won’t be back till next Monday. Leaving me in North Carolina as a veritable Geographic Bachelor – and all the glorious stuff that goes along with that. Mmmmhmmmm. I get to clean up the kitty litter box, make sure the cats have food and water, take the dog out on multiple walks a day and pick up his poop for him (and my mother-in-law thinks I’m the spoiled one!), keep him feed, lavish attention on the animals, AND make my own meals! I’m......

Samantha got Best Newcomer award and Best Whoo Hoo-er Otherwise known as best sportmanship, but she clarified it for us. They are thrilled – me too. Went to Sonic to celebrate as all the best parents do. We leave for NY on Tuesday to go to Amy’s wedding. Can’t wait we are all wearing periwinkle. Have......

Well, last night’s class went very well. It was emotional and lessons learned were about how a child will feel when they are taken from their family. It was and will be tough, our prayer is that we can show these children who God is and that he is Love. I am updating some photos today. I would encourage you to check out Beth and Madison Muddy as well as Jayne’s new potty and Rob’s surgery. You can have a Tuesday chuckle. Love you all. 4 more weeks till summer. Tracey...

Hey everybody, yes, I know it has been a while since I have posted. But I have been busy so please forgive me. We are heading into week 3 of our foster parenting classes. We are prayerfully hopeful that by the end of summer we will have other children entrusted into our care to love. The girls are doing great. Rob had knee surgery a week and a half ago and is healing very well. He bought a cane, he was using a crutch, but a cane is MUCH more manly to......

Whooo! Baby Luke (and his momma) gets to come home today. Right now, we have Daniel visiting with us. Yesterday Jayne was able to play with him and today he can play with Sam, Beth and Bear. We are all excited Mary and Luke can come home and get started on being a new family together. When we saw Scott this morning, the stress was gone. God is Great! On another front – our house has the carpet in now. We are waiting on a phone call from the builder to see......

Well, in typical, efficient Mary Ann Style, Luke Emmett Hines is here. Born this morning at about 8:15. She went into labor last night about 1:00 am. Of course, neither Rob nor I had our phones on so we didn’t find out until about noon today. We will go visit later today after mom and dad have had a bit of a rest. Daniel is with Jayne and I may call her to see if she needs anything. I don’t know anything more about Luke than his name and that he is......
