Follow the Leader

Follow the Leader

Yesterday I decided to play “Follow the Leader” with my children. It was fun (at first) as I led and they imitated me skipping, running backwards, twirling, and walking around our yard. Then my oldest jumped in front. I let him lead. He led me straight to the slide to...

As I was switching laundry, I looked at the bottom of the dryer and noticed two guitar picks. My first response was to yell, “Boys! Why are the guitar picks in my dryer?” But before a word could come out of my mouth, I knew why there were guitar picks in my dryer… my...

Family Vacation- Thank you, Jesus!

Family Vacation- Thank you, Jesus!

I just got back from our family vacation! Let me tell you- I needed it! 2020 has been quite a year for the record books, but not in a good way. I recently saw a post talking about all the bad things that have already happened in 2020… I honestly read it and thought,...
