Protecting Saturdays

When we moved back to China we decided to put a few Adams family rules in place; the first was to try and protect our Saturdays for each other and for Summer. It was our aim to take these 24 hours to slow down and catch up with each other as a family of three.

In China, this always meant Phil’s pancakes, cups of tea, a sermon and a walk up a mountain or a boat ride along our border, there usually was some sort of sushi in there too! And I kind of loved the spontaneity of those mornings. So this week we decided to take a drive in Ireland, the whole car thing is still a bit of novelty and to find wheaten bread and homemade soup along the way…welllllllll it was lovely.

These past few weeks have been difficult. Building upon the past, thinking of distant friends, praying for the future and trying to enjoy the present. We know God has us here for a purpose and we’re constantly seeking out what that is and what that looks like.

Of course little Miss Summer has been our constant smiler and reminder of how blessed we are…here she is, all 29 weeks in her first swing, having an absolute ball! Such a precious gift.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights… James 1:17

Little Squares of Lately Life

6 months. 6 of the best.

6morning 6monthtoesI can’t believe our little Miss Sunshine is already six months old! As much as it seems like the past 6 months have flown by, I can’t even remember what life was like without her. I know these are all the icky cliche things that all Mums say, but it’s genuinely how I feel so lets just roll with that! Summer is sitting up and starting solids and always finding a way to grab long hair when it’s in reach and pull it ever so hard (they really do start young at this, huh!!). She’s also travelled to 5 different countries, flown thousands of miles, met some wonderful people and always been such a trooper, my mama heart is so proud!

Filed under things I never want to forget:

your sloppy wet kisses all day, every day
early morning conversations in bed
the sparkle in your eyes when you see Sophie
your obsession with iPhones
the sound of that giggle
your curious and super sweet nature

She’s our little reminder to keep it positive around here and we love her for it. Summer baby you’re awesome. We love you.
