10 days

This summer has flown by. I can't believe my little baby will be in first grade in ten more days. It's so hard to believe he's growing up and then in other ways, I'm blown away that he's only six.

Today, when I took him to register for soccer, he also wanted to register for flag football.

Days like these are well worth the wait when I get a wonderful comment from a random stranger sent to me via Facebook or email:

Pj Blevins- I just finished your book and it is spectacular. I love books that make me cry! I can so emphasize with Chastity in losing her Mother as I lost mine a year ago. Can't wait to see what happens to her in your next book. Hope it comes out soon.

Thank you miss PJ - whoever you are...where ever you are. You and those like you, who take this book to heart, …
