My little gap-toothed boy started a new journey today… kindergarten! He had a great first day, reported his favorite part was chocolate milk at lunch, and is most excited about learning the solar system this year. We love him so and pray we parent with the respect and kindness that he will demonstrate in his new school. #beckettjamesallen

This week has been full time me and him and full time working… and I’ve felt short on both. Realizing I can’t do it all and be it all is hard! Trying to soak it in and prioritize what matters. And a park date with this one, a race to the fire hydrant and back, a squeaky sway on the old porch swing, and a toothless smile – that’s what mattered in this moment even if he drove me crazy the rest of the moments today 😂#beckettjamesallen

Boy, I’m tired. Between these two littles, a nonprofit startup, a home to manage, and all the extras. I’ve felt worn — but then sawyer wanders in wearing “goggles” to go to the pool and Beckett holds up bunny ears for a picture and giggles ensue and I can’t help but drink it in and let it wash over me. This life sometimes feels crowded and hard, but I am blessed beyond measure and I can rest in good grace. #thetwobrothersallen

This man’s birthday today and so blessed to celebrate with him and our two little goobers. He’s kind, he’s steady, he’s my best friend. I’m thankful for him, our years spent together, and the many more to come. Happy birthday @wade419! From the #thetwobrothersallen and their mama! ❤️
