Tribe Leggio Happenings

The past few months have been full of soaking up our newest little Leggio, adjusting and golf tournaments. I've really had to find balance in this season. When we brought Mia home my boys were younger we could cocoon home because we weren't involved in any outside activities, and even just three years ago with Cora we were able to do this. In this season I found it a little harder being that my boys are all playing golf and have tournaments, church activities that they want to be involved in and so on. God in his goodness did give us a laid back baby boy. He for the most part is a smiley and happy kiddo. A go with the flow kinda guy. As long as I keep him in the Ergo at church or wherever we seem to be, he is good to go. We try to be home as much as we can and in a routine ( because I still think this is good for adoptive kiddos), but I'm learning to balance life with big's and little's. Trying to meet all my kids needs can sometimes get a little crazy around here. God is growing and teaching me new things about how to fill each of my kids love cups up. All six are so different. And I am learning to give myself Grace in this season. I also am trying to soak up my big boys as time with them seems to be flying by, so I want to support them in their endeavors and for them to know that we are there for them too. It's all about balance so I am finding out.

The kids are having too much fun having this little guy in the family. He gets dressed up by the girls and the boys are always doing something funny with him. He adores all his siblings. 

Where is Teagan?

He already loves books. It's one of his favorite things to do. And if you know me this makes my heart so happy, because you know I'm kinda a book nerd.

Happy 4th of July

I hope all of you had a lovely 4th of July. We loved celebrating with our newest little American. He is such a happy boy and brings so much joy and laughter to our home. All of us love him so much!!!!! We celebrated in Bentwater again this year. It's tradition!!!!! They put on a great fourth of July party and fireworks and its so much fun to hang out and play and watch the show. My parents have lived in Bentwater 19 years now, Joe and I were married at the yacht club and we lived there for a season too. So many great memories. Love making more with our children. We are soaking up this sweet little boy and are so thankful to call him son!!!!

Happy 4th!!!!!!

Golf Tournament Gary Player The Woodlands for Ethan and Austin

Two days after we got home from China the boys golf tournaments started. I missed sweet Corbin's because Mama and Teagan were wore out from the jet lag, and I had just fallen back asleep about the time we needed to be up to head to the golf tournament. He placed 2nd place at Pecan Hills in Navasota. I was so proud of my sweet boy. His brothers and daddy were there to cheer him on.

The next day we headed to Ethan and Austin's golf tournament in The Woodlands at the Gary Player Course. This was the older two's first tourney and the competition at this and it is harder. You have kids hitting in the 70's (which is Amazing!!!) at this age. 

Our boys love golf because we can do it as a family and if they win a tournament than that is a bonus to the joy of playing. I sure do love watching them play on the course. I was proud of my boys for doing their best in this Texas heat. :)

Guangzhou Days

We had medical exam early Saturday morning, he was all smiles until they took him away from us for his blood draw. Daddy got all choked up handing him off, while Teagan was screaming reaching for him. We ate some yummy Chinese food for lunch later that day.

Sunday Chen Academy which this was our third time going there, but when in China. :) after we took a taxi over to Shamian Island.

Monday was a free day so we swam and kept it low key, Tuesday was Consulate appointment, Wednesday was Safari Park and today we went to a mountain and took a Gondola up the mountain and hiked down, then headed to the medicinal market to look at all the strange things. LOL

We are back at hotel packing then we are going to have a pizza party with a few families at the hotel playground. 

Tomorrow we leave for home early. We can't wait to see our other kiddos. Please be praying for safe travels and a happy boy.
