Leo <3 I fell in love with Leo instantly… but let me tell you about Leo’s Mom. She is BEAUTIFUL to start with, and just radiates from the inside out. She is an elementary school teacher and God put her in my life when our 3rd child was in 3rd grade. Illiza Mae thrived in Leo’s mom’s class. His mom loved on my sweet (and fiesty) girl and made her feel so very special every single day that year. It was truly a gift to us as we’d moved a couple of times before that and the stability she provided for Illiza was priceless. You’ve seen teachers who just do their job and then you’ve seen teachers who feel so incredibly called to love the kids and truly teach them more than just basic school stuff. Well, Leo’s mom ranks up there with the best of the best.
