This past week has been a tough one for the whole family! The two big girls got braces for the first time, and then two days later, two more girls got their tonsils removed. It’s been a week of pain at our house.

The neat thing is that it’s also been a week of love. Two little sisters who normally have a lot done for them have been running happily around doing everything they could for their big sisters who are recovering. The big girls, though sore themselves, are constantly reading to little ones and administering Popsicles.

The tough times just remind us of how remarkable love is and how blessed we truly are!
