Destination: Gatlinburg, Tennessee

My husband scored four days off over Memorial Day weekend, so we took advantage of his vacation time and went on a mini road trip up to Gatlinburg, Tennessee.


Foster Parent Week

I had no idea there was such a week, but this week apparently is it. I would imagine that most foster parents overlook it because life is so hectic. For example, this is my calendar. Anything red, gray, or purple is foster care related. Green is related to the four of us. So you can […]
