Tutorial: Fall Painting 3 Ways

This is a hard post for me to write. I’ve been putting it off because it’s so hard. I’ve actually had this post open on my computer for over a week. This weekend marks 5 years since I lost my first pregnancy.

Well, today was Froot Loop's Preschool Evaluation. I want to write about it while I can still remember because I'm wiped out today and I'm going to pass out and take a nap after lunch.
