Today

Today the kids and I talked about Martin Luther King, Jr. We talked about what things were like then and how they're different now because of it.

We talked about different schools (Trysten listed the friends he would be missing), buses and water fountains.

Then we talked about our family. And how we wouldn't have been possible without him.

And tonight as I was double checking on the kids as they were falling asleep I heard Trysten praying.

"And thank you for Martin Luther King, Jr for giving me my brother."

Amen.

He is so stinking sweet! Maybe it's an oldest child thing. I feel like Conner will definitely be my most sensitive and in tune child. You should be proud Tesi :)
