Signs of summer

While the weather may still be fluctuating wildly here in NY state, we've had some good swimming days and Julia is a fish! The following pictures will give you some idea.

Here's Julia the rock star - she loves that Barney guitar...
On Memorial Day we even got the following family shot (minus Caleb the photographer).
Which brings us right up to the almost birthday of our almost sixteen year old.  Guess where he wanted to go?  You got it - a camera store and photo gallery.  ;-)

We're keeping busy and so looking forward to the Reece's Rainbow celebration over the 4th of July weekend.  Hope to see you there!


  1. Hi Patty :)

  2. Hello from Reece’s Rainbow!

    I have recently started serving Reece’s Rainbow as the Post-Adoption Care Coordinator. Some adopted children slide right into the family but most will have some struggles and some may have a very hard time. My role is to help keep families connected after they come home and to provide support, encouragement and a listening ear. You are not alone!

    If you are not already involved in the After the Rainbow yahoo group then please join us. It’s a great place to give and receive information and suppot! Also, if I can help you personally in any way, please feel free to contact me. My email address is
