Jeremiah and Sierra: Play Date at Princess Anne Park & Z Pizza with M4C Playgroup / Our Last Day Together :(

Sadly, the Adventures of Jeremiah and Sierra have come to an end. :( It has been a huge blessing to be able to watch Sierra these past two and a half months while her mom, my good friend Karen, has been student teaching. I wish I could keep watching her until Karen finishes student teaching in December, but that is not possible, since we leave for San Diego next week. Today was a bittersweet day, as we were very sad to say goodbye to Sierra, Karen, and Brian, and also our Moms 4 Christ friends. But even through the sadness of saying goodbye to great friends, we take joy in knowing that soon we'll be in San Diego with "Daddy." We miss him so much! We will always treasure these precious friendships that we've been blessed with. As a tribute to the time we've had with Sierra, I'd like to share the short letter that I wrote to Karen and Brian, thanking them for the honor of caring for their precious little girl. (see below)

Dear Karen and Brian,
Thank you for giving me the wonderful opportunity and honor of watching your precious little girl! Sierra is so special to Jeremiah and I, and we are so thankful for the adventures we had together and the memories we made. It's been a blessing to hear all her words, see her many expressions, and watch her grow over time. I wish you all the very best and pray that God blesses you tremendously as you transition from a family of 3 to a family of 4!! Way to go with student teaching, Karen! You did it!
