"To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3

Daddy's MSU Homecoming Parade Post.....
Daddy took the kids to the Minot State University Homecoming Parade. Here are his pictures from his phone and his take on the outing....
We went to the MSU parade.
The whole gang was excited beforehand!!
Grace was proud of her Jim Hill band!
Bella grabbed a lot of candy and attention with her cheerleader outfit!
But Nole' only liked the quiet things which meant he was tucked away in the safety of his big brother much of the time!
We had fun! Love, Daddy-O
And, on another Homecoming report, Sister came home from college last night. Oh, did we have a joyous reunion. After all of the hullaballoo, the three littles settled in with Sissy to watch a Little Bear episode. And, for this Mother Bear, all was right in the world....
Hello! My name is Paula Burckhard. I am married to Kevin and have five children: Elizabeth (18), Samuel (14), Grace (12 w/Down syndrome), Bella (7 w/Down syndrome adopted from Ukraine 2009); and Nole' (4 w/Down syndrome adopted from Serbia 2011) We are a family that loves God and desires to bring him Glory in all we do.
Nole' (listed as Nathan) Came Home on March 2, 2011 from Serbia!
Bella Bogdana Burckhard
This "beautiful gift from God" has been given to us through the miracle of adoption. She became part of our family in August 2009. We are excited to see how God will use this Ukrainian princess for his glory!
