I absolutely love watching you interact with our kids! You have always been such a "hands on" dad and I love that about you!!!
Our children are more blessed than they realize right now, but I know........

Day 159 - Monday

Well, today was crazy busy. I spent most of the afternoon going from the bank to the post office and back again (twice!) trying to get all the items together for Jared's visa to Brazil. My picture should have been one of those, but I was so flustered the whole time I didn't think about it. So here is a different picture.

This is my neighbors yard. Do you see the cat at the corner of the deck?
Do you see how high it is off the ground?
She is just hanging there sleeping!!!!
