heart-smlCooper, you are very interested in finding out about nature, especially bugs of any sort, things that explode and how things work and sensory play. You love to ask great questions.

heart-smlOur prayer for you is that you continue to grow and develop into the amazing young person God has made you to be. That your transition goes smoothly and you make some great new friends. We pray that you accomplish many great things as you develop your unique and God-given talents.
