"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2017."
Cruz: A quick walk in the woods did us well last week. And you were a big help at Mila's open house that followed, helping to finish the crafts in each room and taking a liking to Mrs. Peters' husband and that sweet new baby of theirs. There you were over in the corner of the room, chatting up a storm with this man you had never met. You liked him so much that you asked Jackie if you could steal an extra cookie to bring him. The whole thing was so sweet and I'm still trying to figure out what it was that made you feel a connection with him!
Mila: Speaking of daycare open house, we sure had a good time showing us your school. You gave your preschool teacher, who is at home on maternity leave right now, the biggest hug and it is easy to see she is wonderful. We also met Winnie, a graduate student here from Kenya who wanted to work with little kids like you to show you a bigger picture of our world and all the good people in it. She told me you are a very smart girl and even asked me about my recent trip to Texas. She said you told her your mommy was in Texas learning about Jesus so she could teach other people about Jesus. A good reminder that you are always listening and quite capable of your own discipling.
