Swingsets and bedrooms....DONE!

As of 8:30 tonight, the swingset is complete!!! Thank you Jesus! It was too dark to get a good picture of the finished product, but I will post it later I promise! We already had a pretty bad injury on it Sat. night. Katie Lyn, being the #1 helper that she is, was trying to help Rob and fell off the top of the platform that you see pictured below. She fell off backwards and fell right on her bottom. It knocked the breath from her and scared her, Rob, and Clay pretty badly. I was inside and Clay came running in crying hysterically that Katie Lyn was hurt. I ran outside and Rob was holding her and she could not speak and her face was white as a sheet. Her back is the main thing that is hurt, and we got her checked out at the doctor. It's just a muscular strain, praise God. The doctor said if she had put her arms down they would probably have both broken. Thank you God for protecting sweet Katie Lyn!!!!!! Later that night I was bathing Clay and he just started bawling again. I asked him what was wrong and he was remembering Katie Lyn's fall and said "All I could think is what if she doesn't get to see Kimmie and Quan?" That is so sweet and breaks my heart at the same time.Thank you David, Jake, and Jeremy for all your help!!!!!
Getting ready for our trip with hepatitis A shots!
Beautiful Ella Kate Clark! She told me I am her favorite. She is so smart!
Thank you Janet for the adorable bags! I can't believe it's almost time to use them!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ahoy mateys! Hopefully Quan will be "on board" in his new room!
Here you can see where Colby and Clay sleep..that is, when they sleep in their own beds! :)

Here's the girls' room...we are officially the Brady Bunch. Katie Lyn makes a great Marsha, and Carlie is a perfect Jan. I wonder what kind of Cindy Kimmie will be?
Sweet girly frame with sweet girly girls!

Thank You, Jesus, for protecting Katie Lyn. That was the sweetest thing that Clay said and it made me cry at work!
Ella is beautiful! She looks so much like her sisters! Congrats Shalita (and Bobby)!!!
I can't wait to see pictures of Kimmie and Quan IN their beds and not empty...that will mean that they are home where the Lord ordained them to be! Praise the Lord that we are close enough that there are beds set up in their rooms!!!

The rooms look great! How exciting to check off a few more items on your done list! What an awesome backyard playset-many hours of fun!
Praise to God for keeping Katie Lyn safe during her fall! I am so thankful she will not be wearing arm casts to China, especially in the summer time! God's hand is upon each of you "By this I know that the Lord is well pleased with me, because my enemy does not triumph over me." Ps 41:11
I keep getting those "stomach butterflies" thinking of you!
Love,
Cheri

Huh, that is so weird b/c Ella Kate told me I was her favorite. She's a pleaser!! I hate that for KL she has a good angel watching out for her. I can image that could have been worse.
Way to be strong on the shots - YUCK! They all look so proud of them too!
I LOVE the rooms! They look GREAT! It's going to be great! You Ferrills have been on my mind a lot lately! I'm praying for you!
MUCH LOVE!! Pg

Laine, I know that was so scary about Katie Lyn falling. I am so glad she is ok!
The rooms look GREAT! I never thought about you having the Brady Bunch, but you will! I loved watching that show! Now it will be fun to hear your stories about the Ferrill's bunch!
Great photo of all the kids with their shots. They are going to be great Jie Jie's and Ga Ga's.

Laine, isn't it just so real now, look at their sweet bedrooms all ready for their brother and sister to come home and the pictures are so precious. I am so glad to hear that Katie Lyn is ok and how precious to hear the story of her brother being so concerned about her. It's so refreshing to hear things like this, a family's love for each other, with everything going on in our world today. God has truly blessed your family in so many ways. I am so happy for you all and can't wait to hear your story when you get home with your babies!
Love,
Amanda

Oh Laine, I'm so glad that Katie Lyn is okay. Thank you dear Lord for protecting her. The swingset is GREAT! Tell your husband I am impressed!

It's getting close now...I can't wait! Are the days going by quickly because you are so busy?

We are still having a great time in Utah. I need to update the blog, hopefully I can do that this weekend.

Love,

Erica

Love the rooms...they're precious! Ya'll did a great job on them. You should thank Katie for breaking you in and trying to get you used to the mishaps that are bound to happen. Don't sweat it, praise God she's fine, and just know it won't be the last time that it happens! :)
Can't wait to hear how Kimmie and Quan like their new home!

I just can't believe it...Kimmie and Quan will be here soon! I just sat at the computer and got all misty just reading the post. I guess seeing the rooms all ready for those sweet babies just did me in.
I am so thankful that Katie Lyn is OK! She is such a doll baby...you know how much we love our Ferrill friends!
Love to all!

Sorry I'm so late looking. It's been a bit hectic here this past week, as you know. I love that swing set. I'm so proud y'all could get it. It looks wonderful. Hope Katie Lyn is feeling better. Do I need a Hepatitis A shot?
