From Pre K to Three K

Recently, Anna, Mercy and Piper began kindergarten. Last year they did Pre K together and it was a little fuzzy as to whether we’d send Piper on this fall.  Piper is ten months younger, and at the young fringe for kindergarten while the twins are…

Remembering Mattie

This afternoon, I was honored to conduct a celebration of life service for Mattie Loux. I was also blown away by the strength and warmth of his parents, John and Tracie, as they meticulously went down the list to recognize caregivers who had served Mattie…
