Growing Up....

Callie is growing up so fast, I can't believe she will be 4 in September! She has been attending a Mommy's Day Out at the Church every Thursday for the past month now. It is from 9-3pm and she just LOVES it:) Her favorite part is all the crafts they do, Callie is very artsy. Everyday, all day, all she wants to do is draw, paint, etc!

We have been enjoying the nice weather here before it gets too hot and taking lots of trips to the park. Callie never wants to leave!

Callie has made a BIG accomplishment, that I am very happy about! She is now potty trained...hooray!!!!

We leave in 3 wks for California, so please continue to keep Callie in your prayers and that good news will come from this trip.

Also, please pray for this little boy, Caleb he is 4 and having open heart surgery next week.


  1. Congrats on potty training!! It's such an accomplishment for everyone! She looks so grown up in her new pictures, I can't wait to meet her!
