1103. a new week

Alrighty, that's it's for now. Tune in next Monday for the next installment.


  1. Our 11 year old boy is also growing out his hair. Yesterday it was so crazy that he wore a hat to church and decided he is ready to cut it off. (About 5 months since it has been cut :)

    Also, 1/4 of a year sounds significantly longer than 3 months!

  2. How sweet!!! She is a precious gift! :) Btw, please share which movie you enjoyed! My hubby is out of town almost all month, and I could use a light-hearted break. A movie sounds terrific to me.



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