A New Phase: Dating

Posted by Hallee on Dec 1, 2012 in Parenting, Raising girls, Raising teens

A new phase in our life: dating is about to begin.

This is a picture Gregg took a couple of months ago from a hotel patio in Kuwait. A week ago, he received instructions to attend a week-long class there again. He said to me, “It would be cool if you could come.”
