Meet the Barrs
Hello, we're the Barrs! We're a family of 4 from rural mid-western Illinois.
Nathan is the big-daddy, and he works as a roofer and enjoys football, video games, card games, kayaking, camping, and spending time with family.
I'm Bethany (the momma), and I work in an office at WIU and enjoy all sorts of arts and crafts, screen printing, and spending time with family.
Daisy is our goofy, sweet, frozen-loving, bird-chasing, treat-eating 2 year old who can't resist a toot joke and is always looking out for her sister.
And, of course, Ramona is our sugar baby. Despite her broken heart, she is happy, bubbly, and loves to play with toys and be held by Momma. You'd never know from the outside how sick she is on the inside.
These girls have brought so much joy and laughter into our lives. We are blessed by every day that we have them. Thank you so much for checking in with us, and please remember our sweet Ramona in your prayers!
