Thanks everyone for your support and prayers the last couple weeks. If you didn't already know... our friends had 2 girls in the nickel mines school shooting. The weekend following that my grandmother (dad's mom) passed away on saturday. It's been a crazy two weeks but God really does bless us with great memories and family in times like this!
