There were 4 boys living there right now.
"G" is from Africa and is11 years old. He was brought over here by some "Family " members but when things got tough , they decided they could no longer care for him. He has had very bad experiences with the foster families that he has been with and after spending the 2 hours with us he asked if he could come home with me! Boy it sure breaks your heart!
Michael is 10 and has two older sisters in the older girl section. He is so smart and loves math. We did a ton of math problems!
JoJo is 5 and has three older sister and a big brother in the other facility. He had the kindest eyes and is so sweet. He loves to write his letters. He also loves to play outside and eat snacks!
And the last of the gang is 5 year old Dennis. He is Hispanic and is the cutest thing ever. We played hangman and basketball and he has the best smile ever.

permanent marker and all the other boy names in washable marker. She was suppose to wash it to find out who it was from but she cheated and dipped her finger in water and tested which one didn't smear!! So clever!!
She responded by purchasing a tie that would match her dress with a note attached that read...."Let's "TIE" up all the loose ends with no if's, but's or and's. Caleb, There's no need to guess cuz I totally say YES!
|Ashlee looked like a princess !|
he is taller than her!
It was a good night for all!
|Dakota asked Kaitlyn to homecoming by sprinkling chocolate kisses on the floor of her bedroom leading to her bathroom and placing Roses in the shower with a banner that read...Now that I have kissed the ground that you walk on and showered you with roses...will you go to Homecoming with me?|
Kaitlyn answered back with a plant that was sitting in a diaper with the note that read...
I would wet my "Plants" to go with you!
|She had decorated his car with Y E S balloons!|
They had a great time and looked smashing!
|He is all grown up but.....|
|He is still my little boy!!|

Jessica got to spend the weekend at Grandma Murdock and Grandpa Gibb's cabin. The first night wasn't so pleasant! Jessica has never spent a night away from home...Yes she is almost 10 but has "Mom Separation Issues" So Grandma Murdock took on the challenge. After No sleep the first night they came to some agreements and the second night went better.
Leave it to grandma to save the weekend! She went shopping for a new water bottle and played the wii. She now holds the record for high score in bowling. Not to mention, grandpa took her fishing!
They almost got one but it got away!!!
Jessica missed home and her mom but she made it through two nights away from home!
I am very proud of her! Now she is home and the house is no longer quiet but we are glad she's home!
