why is it that swimsuit sizes are SOOO off? If anything the sizes should run big so we can feel a bit skinny but NO a size 2 person wears a size 8 swimsuit my brothers this should not be.

Something you all need to know about Angela Grace Boggs. She was named after John's mom who died in a car accident when he was only 2. She was born with a heart defect and had to have open heart sergery at 9 months of age. She is strong and courageous. You cannot ever tell her she can't do something, she will prove you wrong. At 4 years old she was making breakfast for her sisters and getting them dressed. she is responsible, She often reminds me of playdates or birthday parties I had forgotten. Angela is a SORE loser. She ALWAYS wins, or else. She has never met a stranger. She is a good judge of character, when she was just a few months old she would scream bloody murder when certain people would come around, ended up she was always right on with the CRAZIES. Angela was born an 'old soul' she would rather hang out with adults and talk, than play with a group of kids in the same room. She hates to be alone, she crawls in to bed with one of her sisters or with us every night. She loves high heel shoes, and walks like she was born in them. She was saved when she was 4, funny thing was she got up from naptime and told me she prayed to Jesus out the window and told him she believed in him. Angela has always been independent. Since she was able to walk she never looked back never needed affirmation she is confident. this is my firstborn, and I look up to her. She teaches me daily what trusting God looks like.

the questions of a parent

will they do good in school?
will they love jesus?
do they see jesus in me?
will they be friends when they grow up?
do they resent me or will they?
how much is too much of everything?
do we do things as a family enough?
should I pretend I didn't see the girls fight and let them work it out on their own?
do they feel free to be themselves?
knowing the impact my mom had on me as a child, will my kids want to be like me?
and woud I want my kids to be like me?(this one tugs at my heart daily)
