  1. I decided to sit out this year, letting Rosie and Jackie know that we need to hunker down as a family in our current season of life. We decided that before Robbie’s seizure and epilepsy diagnosis, but that certainly confirmed that this was the right choice! I’ll be praying for y’all, though!!!
