Jon, Emma, and the Culture of Littles

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.

My Big Girl…

To tell the truth, we’ve not felt so well the last week. I hate to see them not feeling well, but I think it’s just part of life this time of year. I’m always glad to see everyone on the mend, but this does give us a chance to pause and see them all back to health. Please keep my…
