What We've Been Up To Lately

So very thankful for everyone's encouragement after the last post. Your comments and emails were so appreciated. Spent some time with girlfriends last night too and I'm reminded that all of us parents are in this together and we are sustained by the sufficient grace of God.

Warning: a majillion pics coming your way in a catch-up post of what we've been up to lately.
