Friday was Megan’s last day as Jase’s sitter. She decided to take a job in Iowa at her aunt and uncle’s bakery. We were so excited and happy for her to be taking this huge step in her life, but we are so sad to know that we are losing a great piece of our family. Jase will still be watched by her mom, but I know it will be different for him without her. To show her how much we love her and appreciate her I decided to make her a gift to take with her. They are Mennonite, so they don’t believe in keeping pictures, so I decided on the next best thing and did a project with Jase’s hand print. This is what we came up with:
I used Stickles to outline his print and write We love you…Jase got into my craft room and decided he would add his own personal touches to the writing before it was dry hence the messiness of it, but instead of “fixing” it I decided to leave it as his personal “touch” to the project. She would appreciate seeing his oneryness in it I know!

“You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.”
“When I miss you I don’t have to go far…I just have to look inside my heart because that’s where I’ll find you.”
We will miss her. I am so thankful for her and all of her love she has given to Jase. Thank you Megan for helping to raise my baby. I think we’ve done an excellent job, and I will always be in your debt.
