Huntsville State Park October 2017

We ventured out for a picnic, nature sketching and bike riding day. It was just what our souls needed in the middle of the week, to breath in the fresh air and soak up the sunshine. We delighted in the day as a family, as we biked and looked at nature. We took some of our read aloud's and read while we sketched from a wooden playground that overlooked the lake. It was a day of discovery and it renewed our senses to look at God's beautiful creation in awe.

My littlest blessings

Houston Air Show 2017

Joe's Dad and Step Mom blessed us with a day at the air show in Houston. We had never been to an airshow so it was a fun experience for all of us. We especially liked all the WWI and WWII planes since that is what we are studying in History. A lot of the planes the boys knew all about. It was neat to go inside them and see really what life would have been like being a pilot back then. And they even had old music playing from the era. It was really an awesome experience all around. The Thunderbirds were pretty AMAZING to watch, and the speeds and tricks of the planes captivated us. It was a great day at the airshow. Thank you Grandpa and Grandma Leggio for the treat.

Pumpkin Patch October 2017

I honestly didn't take hardly any pics of this day and I am so sad, We met our friends from Austin in La Grange at a Dairy Farm with a Pumpkin Patch. We had a great day visiting and all our kids get along very well. We even went to Royers and the Pie Shack in Round Top and I don't have pics :( I guess we were having too much fun.

Mia and Maddie were so sweet to watch together

South Texas PGA Texas A&M golf tournament

In September all three boys played at the Texas A&M golf course. To say they were a little excited was an understatement. It was a great hot September Texas Day to play golf. LOL Since all three were playing and starting at different times and on different holes we had to recruit grandparents to help follow kids. Austin teed of first, then Ethan, then Corbin. Austin and Corbin got 4th place and were happy with their medals and the way they played. Austin got a birdie and 8 or 9 Pars. Ethan played well too and enjoyed the game. That's all we could ask for, them to enjoy playing with their dad. :)

Corbin was elated to place

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!!!!!!
