And on to our featured bloggers

1.  Your Modern Family posted on how important it is to celebrate not only a child’s firsts but their lasts too.  She writes, “How many times do we do something with our children and not realize that it will be our “last” time doing it for them?”  The post was so beautiful I got all teary-eyed reading it.
