It’s The Little Things

In life it is so often the little things that make a big difference and in this case that little thing was a tiny little dog bed.

They Can’t Say Yes if You Don’t Ask

Freshman With Attitude

Inches away from the girl’s face is where our freshman guard’s hand stayed while she was assigned to the task.

It was awesome to watch this freshman who a few … Continue reading Freshman With Attitude
