Her first year

How is it that the days can be so long and yet the years go by so fast?

the morning I went to be induced 

So much as happened since Catherine was born one year ago.

gotta love being induced, having an epidural,  and touching up your makeup  before you push:) 

I don't think that I remember the first four months.... really I don't.

Was it the lack of sleep?

The day we got home with Catherine

Or maybe it was wrangling this newly two little boy?

Catherine was born in Virginia, we now live in South Carolina.

Catherine's baptism 
Two sets of our parents have moved, and both of my brothers will too.

Our Christmas card from this year
But do you know what I am thankful for?
packing boxes to move to Clemson

That the years will pass,

First boat ride at 9 months
our families will change,
Catherine's first Easter 
our locations may be different,

but God will remain the same.

James 1:17 "Every good and perfect gift is from above,

coming down from the Father of heavenly lights,

who does not change like shifting shadows."

I so desperately want my kids to know this never changing, 

                                always loving,

                                      faithful God 

      who will be with them all the days of their life.
