So much has changed in a year. My family added a little girl, Miss Jana Renee and a little boy, Mr. Titus River. 
A year ago Virginia wasn't walking yet, now she thinks she's the Queen of our house. 

Nehemiah seemed so big last year, but now he knows so much more. I've heard him counting higher, and singing his ABC's. In another year....he'll be starting pre-school. 
Some days it seems like nothing much happens here, but I've realized that each day we're all learning something new. 

I enjoy the little things in life, a clean load of laundry, a sleeping smiling baby, clean dishes, a freshly swept rug, a kiss from my kids, watching them help each other. 
I'm trying to learn not to rush things.
