4th of July/Drama

We had a nice 4th of July. We went to a friends house where we ate lots of food and played with fire.  We got rained on a couple of times but we had some clear times.  I will let the pictures tell the story....

In true form, we did have some drama at our house as well.  You will notice that Kassi did not join us.  She decided that she was 18 and could do whatever she wanted.  We haven't seen or heard from her since she walked out the front door yesterday.  I am pretty sure that I know where she is but she is 18 so I am giving her space.  Really, not much else I can do.   Is she ready?  No.  I guess she needs to learn that more than I do at this time. 

All of this had really saddened me.  I had prayed that she would make better choices for herself.  At this point all we can do is wait and allow her to make her mistakes.  Some days it is really hard to be a parent!


  1. Sounds like a rerun for you! Ugh. Here you go again!

    1. In some ways yes. Turning 18 can be tricky I guess if you think that it suddenly gives you the freedom to do whatever you want. Joselin was much more complicated in that she struggled for years with accepting her adopted family. Kassi didn't necessarily reject adoption, she chose it. She rejects our lifestyle. Thankfully we have a great relationship with Joselin now. Time will tell what Kassi will chose.

  2. I am in a very similar situation with my's tough!
