Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.

Korri's last day

Today was Korri's last day of preschool for this year. She will be going again next fall, but will be in the "pre-K" class. She will go Mon, Wed and Fri afternoons, which will be a change for us, but also welcome. She went Tues and Thurs mornings this year. The days Korri had school were much tougher in the mornings, so we won't have to deal with that at all next year.

Korri went to school like normal but they had a little celebration at her school for moms and dads. Our friend Anna was kind enough to watch Mac, so it could just be about Korri when we were at school. I don't think that EVER happens.

We had root beer floats for a snack, the kids danced to the "Gummy Bear song" and Mrs. Pam read “I knew you could” by Craig Dorfman on the Smart Board. It was really cute and fun to see Korri in that environment. She is growing up so quickly. She challenges us on a daily (hourly? Minute?) basis but she has a kind heart and has lots of friends at school. None as special as Aubrey, though (bottom picture below). Korri cried at bed time last night because she missed Aubrey already! Um, you wouldn't have seen her yet even if you still had school, silly! But I totally get the sentiment. I think they will have some of the same activities this summer, so that will help.

I really can't wait to see the places you'll go and the things you'll do. You are special and if you just believe in yourself, there is nothing you can't accomplish, Baby Girl!! I love you to Pluto and back.
