My sister’s tennis tournament was held last weekend and it went so well! The weather cooperated and everyone pitched in to make the day fun and successful. Thanks so much to Jen for helping design the t-shirts, they turned out great 🙂
I was official photographer (self-volunteered ;)) and ended up taking more pics of the kids than of the tennis players! But with the weather so beautiful and the kids looking so darn cute, I couldn’t resist. We all had such a fun day, and I don’t even play tennis! To top it all off, my sister was able to raise enough money to pay for their orphanage donation for their adoption 🙂 Yeah God!!
We have so loved living so close to my family down here, I haven’t lived this close to home since I left home for college over 20 years ago! Needless to say, it’s going to be so hard leaving my family behind. Our kids have become so close too, but we’ll just have to do a lot of road trippin’…
Wonderful pictures!!! I didn’t know that your sister is adopting? Is she getting ready to travel soon? All the kids are so cute!!! I recognize your children in the pictures but were the other children your sisters? They are all very good looking!
Leaving family is hard. We left our family 10 years ago. We moved from CA to Chicago…and it was so hard. : (
Okay… Your sister is stunning too. What is up with you and your family.. leave some hotti-ness for others, woudlja please?
I am so stoked(yes stoked) to hear that she has enough to pay for the orphanage donation. GO GOD!!
Give her a big ol’ congratulations hug from me, woulddja?
Yep, you will just have to road trip. 🙂 I would find it really hard to move away from family. After all the talk about moving out of state, we’re settling back in right where we’re at!!
Glad the tourney was a success!! The pictures are great. What a good-looking bunch. 🙂

So cool, I dont know your sister but since you told me about her adoption I have been thinking about her! Glad to see she raised the SWI fee!
Glad to hear the event was successful, and the weather cooperated for you and your sis! Praise the Lord!
It must be hard getting ready to leave…I would LOVE to have family closer:-( too.
The pictures are beautiful as always…such a good looking group….thanks for sharing!
Yay for your sister raising her orphanage donation! When is she traveling? I hear ya on moving away from family, we have lived away from our families most of our married life. It is hard.
I’m glad it went so well and that your sister was able to raise the funds for the orphanage donation fee! These pics are incredible!

I’m so glad the tournament was such a success! Yay God!
What a beautiful family you have…extended family and all!
I’m with Amie…how can one family have such hottiness? That word is cracking me up…
Congrats on the success!
REALLY beautiful pictures of everyone. It must be hard leaving family again, but at least thanks to the internet it makes it so much easier to keep in touch daily. Good luck to you on your travels to Shepherd and your journey to your new home.
I’m so glad to hear the tournament was a success. It looks like great fun was had by all. You did a great job capturing the day.
Amazing thing your sister did!! What a good looking bunch in your family….extended AND immediate. I know you must be crazy busy with preparations. I am so excited for you that I have a bit of a stomach ache!!!! Is there anything I can possibly do to assist you from the other side of the States?????? So anxious to witness another miracle in the life of you and your family.
You go girl!!! God’s blessings with you too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like the event was very successful. Congratulations!
You did a great job with the photography…such a handsome family!!!
Fabulous photos & fantastic story!! SO glad it all went so well!
I just took a look at the “Countdown to Shephard” & couldn’t BELIEVE what I read….5 days until you hug that sweet precious boy!!! I am soooo EXCITED for you!!! I can’t wait to follow along!!!
Wishing you well & lifting you up in prayer always!!
I am glad that it went so well:) When do you leave?
