Caroline, 4 years old

Every stage of a child’s life brings something new and exciting, but there’s just something about a 4-year old that, to me, is pretty-much perfect.  It was my favorite age with Ross and it’s probably why, out of ALL the ages, I enjoy teaching the 4-year olds on Sunday mornings at church.

Even though I’ve witnessed this […]

Solar Systems (vs. sloppy animal spit)

I had BIG plans for our short time in Huntsville, Alabama. Our hotel actually over-looked the U.S. Space and Rocket Center and, as I looked out our hotel window, I couldn’t help but envision us spending the next day there.  In my sometimes unrealistic ‘OPTIMISTIC’ mind, I would take pictures while Ross and Rayna’s little […]
