Class program

Cole shared this with me the other day and I absolutely LOVE IT! The best thing is that Cole exemplifies this father. I love him and feel SO blessed to have him :)

Oh well lots of other exciting opportunities await :) I was just so sure he'd get the job,  they all were so excited with his experience and knowledge. ??? Must've not been the right fit for us.
