We've been praying along with our  parents and grandparents for an amazing teacher, an amazing school year and amazing friends for our Peanut! May God be glorified in Her life and through her this 2014-2015 School Year!

Mama-Daughter Date

I'm loving the 1:1 time I'm getting with Bean that I once had with Peanut before Bean was born! We have so much fun together and I'm cherishing each and every moment with my sweetie before she's off to school herself!
