This morning was one of those rough mornings... We quickly knelt down together for prayer before rushing off to school and Cache started to pray. Among other things these are the words he spoke, "please bless that mom can get her act together." When he uttered Amen there was an... Continue reading

Here I am playing Catch up again. It's so worth doing though, because there's much to document however lousy a job I do.
