As summer comes to an end we are trying to enjoy our last few weeks before we have to start sharing Big Brother with school again and let me tell ya, we aren't looking forward… Read more →

Goodbye Turtle legs… Hello shark legs! 

Today was a big day for us! We went and picked up Baby Bears second set of prosthetics! They are pretty awesome if I do say so myself!!!

He has been taking more and… Read more →

Let them be little…

Let them be little is a sentence that I say often. Often because so many people want their kids to hurry and grow up and do bigger things than what they are already doing.
