A trip to hubby's work and the Imagination Movers Concert!!


Last week Thursday, we went to the Imagination Movers Concert at Lisner Auditorium at George Washington University.  The week before the concert, K would ask every morning if this were the day we would go to the concert.  He was so happy to get a "yes!" on Thursday.

Because my hubby carpools to work and works in DC, we went to his work to pick him up and to see his office.  This was the first time we had visited his work since he got his new job.  It was beautiful!  The building was beautiful.  There was religious artwork everywhere.  There was a garden in the courtyard area of the building too.

 Then we grabbed a quick dinner and headed to the concert.  We got there with just minutes to spare.  If you remember, I got the tickets for writing this post.  Well, when we went to sit down, we were pleasantly surprised to find we were sitting in the second row!  The concert started with Choo Choo Soul, a group that is on the Disney Channel.  They were good.  But at this point, the boys seemed a bit overwhelmed.  They had never been to a concert before, so the noise, and lights, and activity were a little overwhelming.  Plus, J was a bit "old" for the music, so he did not seem too interested.


But then the Imagination Movers came out. And they got every kid in the auditorium on their feet.  I will admit, I think the concert was great.  From start to finish, it was fun, high energy, and entertaining.  The Movers would come off the stage and dance and sing among the kids in the aisles.  K and A even got to high five Collins.  K was dancing like I have never seen him dance! I laughed at how cute he was.  And even J danced.  which I loved, because he is typically shy and reserved and would normally not just get up and dance, but he did!

And my hubby and I enjoyed it too!  It was a great family night and I am so thankful that we got the opportunity to go.  The Movers still have a few shows left in the tour, so go here to see if they are coming near you!

  2. Your J sounds just like my John-Paul :)

    We really liked the concert too, but our seats were not so great. Thanks for doing that original blogpost so that I scored us some free tickets as well!

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

Two Years Ago . . .

Two years ago today, I was on the other side of the world.  I woke up too early.  Too excited and anxious to sleep.  My husband and I lay in bed, chatting about the day ahead of us.  After years of hoping and praying, the day that felt like it would only ever be in my dreams, was finally here.  It was really real.  And when a dream comes true, and you are in awe of God changing hearts and moving mountains to bring you to a moment, there is little more to do than to pray and praise.  And so, we moved our conversation from our hotel room to the Catholic Church across the street.  Yes, in a land where so few have ANY belief system, God saw it fitting to place us in a hotel that just happened to be across from a Catholic Church.  And so we knelt in the back, as the faithful in the front, finished what must have been the rosary, and prayed.  We prayed our own silent prayers as our ears were filled with the melodious sound of a rhythmic prayer in Mandarin.

As we crossed the street to head b…
