Tracy / October 2, 2012

Jonathan got sick at church last Sunday. I mean, REALLY sick. I think it was a combination of he just got too hot, he had just consumed a large amount of water, and he was running around with all the other kiddos having fun. As it would happen, this event occurred at just the spot where everyone gathers for fellowship…
