Charleston_2003-768x514This photo was taken in November of 2003 in Charleston, South Carolina. We had rented a house for only one day, but it was an amazing day. The weather was unusually warm, so we were able to take the kids to the beach. The blonde in the picture is Caroline’s friend, Amy Baltz, who is about to have her first child. She and Caroline are both pregnant at the same time.

It is so hard for me to look at this picture and see how much the children have grown. It pulls at my heart.
