Michael, Sarah, Samuel, and Annalee Pope live in the growing town of Bentonville, Arkansas. Michael, who is originally from Zimbabwe, works as an intern architect for a local firm. Sarah is a former first grade teacher who taught for three years before unexpectedly delivering Samuel at 24 weeks gestation. She has chosen to stay at home with him in order to accommodate his busy therapy schedule and continued need to stay isolated from potentially harmful viruses such as RSV. With Samuel's unexpected arrival came the beginnings of this blog. He is a miracle baby who has a current love of tractors, dirt, and all things BOY! Annalee, is our sweet baby girl who is growing by leaps and bounds each day.
