holy experience


  1. I've never liked the word playdate either...but it really incapsulates exactly what's going on and I can never think of another word that fits. And I love the socializing I get out of the playdate!

  2. Lovely God's concern for the details of my life!

  3. Absoluty LOVE the things your kidos say on the sidebar. Adorable. I need a list too. It make a great scrapbook.

  4. Wonderful list, full of life with many children!


Thanks for the comments . . . they make my day!
