  1. My biggest hope (and prayer) is that my children know God in a personal way.

  2. My big picture goal is to raise two children who are responsible, contributing members of society. My daily dream is just to get through the day without popping my cork.

  3. My dream for my daughter is I hope she will be a kind, contributing member of society. I hope she brings her Baba groceries when she is ill. I hope she keeps her (future) siblings in check. I hope she is a good friend and makes me a Baba!! ha ha ha!

  4. I just wanted to let you know that I think your site is really great! Good luck with all you two do!

  5. My dream is for my children to never fight....oh, wait a minute, I'm not sleeping :)

    My goal/dream for my family if for my children to remember all the happy times we've spent when they get older and to make many more happy, fun memories.

  6. forgot to add, I'm a follower too :) The ideas you have shared since Friday are awesome! There are so many talented people and it's so nice how everyone shares all their ideas and instructions.
