|We are ALWAYS grateful for Grace snuggles!|
That weekend, we celebrated Grace's preschool class with a program at our church. Once a year, the kids sing songs during the service, and it's always such a special time. Even though Grace can't sing any of the songs, her face still lights up in a smile when it comes time for some of her favorites, which just melts my heart. She also really enjoyed seeing some of the kids in the afternoon class, who were in her class last year. They all make a point to come and talk to her, and it's very special to us.

We also celebrated Grace's great-grandma Nancy with a special ceremony with the Daughters of the American Revolution. I became an official member this year in my grandma's honor, and they had a service at the cemetery to dedicate the DAR marker on her gravestone. I'm even hoping Grace can join the DAR with me some day.
