So my little boy has grown into a man. He has grown out of sitting on my lap, but he has not grown out of my heart. He is serving a mission for The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am going to miss him a ton. He will be gone for 2 years. I am very grateful for his example, and the things he has taught me, and will teach me. It was really hard to say goodbye. I am glad that is over. A new chapter of my life begins. This says my feelings well...
I made these yummy protein bites. They are loaded with yummy things for you. The cool thing is that it only takes one or two to be very satisfied. They are a great snack to have on hand.
