i took my kids to iowa this past week-end to visit my parents. visiting iowa has become one of my little girls favorite things to do because of little Michaela who lives next door…she is the same age as grace and they really love each other. grace never stops talking about her when we return home and when i look at these photos i melt. they share a special little bond….even at age 3.5 they have found a real friendship. i hope they grow up together and know one another forever and ever.
