Andrew made his communion this past Saturday. I can’t tell you how excited he has been the last few weeks coming up to the day. It was like waiting for Christmas! After church he tells daddy and me, “Finally, finally, I can receive Jesus with the rest of the church!” If only we all had

Even with holding on he had a

With the help of grandpa, Andrew was able to put together this 3D car puzzle. I wish I could get him to paint it, but he prefers the “natural” look!
Don't you love the silly look on his face?!
