Each year Braden's preschool has an Easter Parade and each of the classes wears some sort of hat or mask and walk in a parade and then meets up with their parents in the fellowship hall for cookies. Last year Braden refused to wear his mask and also refused to walk in the parade so I was a little nervous when I went to see him in the parade this year. However, he was such a big boy! He wore an Easter Bunny mask even though the class was wearing jungle masks (I like that he has his own ideas about things!) and he was walking with his class in the line. As soon as he spotted me he started saying , "Hey Mommy. I'm walking in the parade Mommy." It was so sweet and then we enjoyed cookies together after the parade. Braden was so excited about being a part of the parade this year and it made feel so happy to see him having a great time with his class.
Several weeks ago our church had a Sunday designated for baby and toddler dedications. It was a really special time for Brad and me to be able to dedicate both of our boys to God with our family watching. Our prayer is that we will be parents who will lovingly devote our lives to our children teaching them about God's unconditional love and grace.
I am a child of God, a wife to an incredible husband, mother to two of the most adorable children I have ever laid eyes on, a daughter to amazing parents, sister to an awesome brother, and a teacher to twenty of the silliest four year olds ever. I wear many hats and treasure each. My life is extremely full and I can't imagine it any other way!
