    I added a photo to the MCP FB wall on May 13th. This is for Challenge #5. Jennifer Rosencrantz Madigan is the name that it was uploaded from. I’m not sure how to add a link to the photo specifically so I hope this counts.

    Challenge #5 – One Click (you only get one chance as the kids process past in church. I really love that I got her proud mama beaming in the background. Talk about happy accident.)
