So we rode a little further and met some Canadian geese who live along the shore!
Now where we live Bald Eagles are not a common site. For the past few years there has been a pair nesting at the reservoir. Sometimes , if you are lucky you get to see them. One did fly by us but we weren't able to get a picture.. But on the ride back across one of the young Bald Eagles fly over us and landed in a dead tree. You'll have to take my word for it although they are still all brown at this age. You can tell its a large bird.
So as we pedaled along and we saw more and more of God's beautiful hand, I began to feel a little better. Yes there is evil in the world and yes there are people who make very poor decisions... But God has surrounded us with so much beauty and good!! Its right there in front of us always. It just takes a special husband who some how knew I needed to be taken on this little journey this evening and shown what I knew all along.

Today marks the 6 month mark of us meeting Sierra. On January 12th we met her for the first time. I can't believe how the time has flown. I can't believe she is the same solemn little girl we met that day. I can't believe how much our lives have changed and our hearts have grown. Not only for this child but for all orphans. This experience has changed how I think about everything. I want to help more orphans in more ways. I'd love to go back to China and give another child the opportunities that Sierra now has open to her. I don't know if that is possible but we have not completely shut the door on that idea. At the very least I think I would like to spend some time in China helping in a small way. Who knows what will happen but this precious girl has changed me in many ways!!!
Scott was taking some black and white photos and I especially liked this one!!!

And yes it did rain almost every day but only a short shower!
Playing in the lake
Frankenstein in Lake George. She wanted her picture taken with him. Now all 3 of my boys were petrified of him when they were little!!!
David caught a record(for him) 32 fish. He was thrilled and Sierra had to touch every one!!!!
Her famous, " I can do it" And she did!!!
My new favorite picture of Sierra and Daddy!!!!
This picture is priceless. I love pictures of them from the back. It really shows the difference in their sizes but also shows the sweetness David has in his heart for Sierra. Look how she is holding on to his hand!!! We were so happy that he was able to join us on this trip!!!!!
