The summer of her life

We celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary yesterday. In this previous post, you can see what was happening during the past 4 of those. But really here’s what I want to tell you about before my children wake up…hold on…one just woke up.

I’m back, but I’ll try to make this quick. First let me tell you why I don’t update much these days…hold again…

Day 2 of attempting a post.

Rejoice with us. 2 years ago today this happened:

Big Sister

We thank God for these awesome blessings. We thank you all for your continued prayers and support for Scout.

This is the first summer in her life that she isn’t in the hospital or recovering from a procedure or hospitalization. So we are taking that blessing and determined to give her the summer of her life (so far).

I started an Instagram account if you’d like to follow her adventures and day to day. It’s easier for me to post pics than to make a blog post these days.

Here’s the link:


It’s private, so you’ll have  to ask to follow her and then I’ll add you.


Now excuse us while we celebrate life, love, and a little boy’s first birthday.
