{when he came home from preschool, he is always excited to show me what he painted or crafted. he handed this one to me + he told me all about how white people use to be mean to black people and didn't let them do things. he talked about martin luther king, jr. and how he freed the black people. he then carried onto having me touch the paint of his hands and said we need to always be nice to the black people.}
so, i'm thinking he learned something new today! :)  

i love being a mom. these are such cute 
moments i never want to forget.

That's the cutest little prayer I've ever heard. We can learn so much from their heartfelt specific prayers. So SO CUTE!
