Cory and I took the girls to North Liberty Fun Days this past Sunday and they had a BLAST. Cory and I were both so happy watching our little girls play together. It is funny to me, because Thea is so brave, and Leila is such a caregiver. They went on every ride together, and Thea was the brave one, who needed her sister’s help to get along, and Leila was a bit more timid about the new adventures, but she put on her brave face so she could help Thea through. It was really amazing to watch, and I tried to capture it here in their walk through the fun maze.

"What I want to say to you is that sometimes life catches you by surprise and you feel unequipped to handle what it brings you, but every bit of life you've lived before that moment equips you to live through it. That's what I would give to you."
-Fanni Victoria Green-Lemons (talking to her daughter)
If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can, there is nothing more to it than that.
"The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one."
