After an unpleasant (thanks to an unruly toddler) trip to the eye doctor in January, I was not looking forward to our most recent visit with Dr. Lawhon.

God has graced us with 2 amazing kiddos. I am overwhelmed by watching Jordan smother his little “Gabbi, Gi Gi” with hugs and kisses. There isn’t a day that goes by that he doesn’t ask to hold his sister. Then looking at little Gabriella gaze at her hero causes me to pray that these times only increase with age.
As March 3 quickly approached, I prepared my 1st grade classroom at Walker Elementary School in Canton for my long-term substitute. My husband, Aaron, a sergeant in the Ohio National Guard, prepared his tasks for the 2 weeks he’d be out. My 2-year-old son, Landon, and 8-year-old stepdaughter, Kaitlyn, ran around with excitement as the arrival of their little sister grew closer.
Our trip to Akron Children’s Hospital in January included more than just Bekah’s eye exam. After leaving Dr. Lawhon’s office, we ran (really ran, it was FREEZING out there) out to the top level of the Locust Street parking garage so we could take a look at the progress the construction crews have been making on the new tower.
