the cicadas…

hearing the children pray
mashed potatoes + chicken fingers
connor learning to sing
swimming for hours each day
playing nerts
eating ice milk

engagement presents
tommy fike

leaning on others
being so loved (all 4 of us)
explaining the wedding plans
feeling like a family
knowing how close the Lord is, all the time

…the cicadas
