TWO in One Day!!!!!

Can you believe it?  

These truly were “Kodak moments”!

I got not one, but TWO smiles from Ryan 🙂 !!!


All kidding aside, we have been learning a lot about the U.S. Civil War.  Today we made hard tack, which was a common type of “bread” that the soldiers would eat.  We found out they were called “teeth dullers” for a good reason.  They didn’t taste bad (just bland), but I can’t imagine how hard they got when they were old and stale!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all that you do!


The past few weeks have been super busy, but full of blessings..

Some days I feel like I can hardly keep up, but I cherish each and every day that I get to love on and serve my sweet family!
