The mote

The mote

“Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?”  (Matthew 7:4) Aaron started running a fever on Saturday, so he had a bit of a rough day.  During a bit of respite, when he was feeling a […]

Jonathan's FHE lesson

Jonathan’s FHE lesson

We have a Family Home Evening chart and trade off responsibilities.  For instance,  this week I have “song” (choosing and opening song), Jonathan has “scripture” (sharing a scripture – up to him whether it goes with the lesson or not), Emma has “lesson,” Kathryn has “activity,” and Abby has “treat.” Usually Bryan and I direct […]

April 2014

April 2014

April doesn’t have as many “slice of life” photos as Bryan was home nearly the whole month.  I wasn’t complaining.  :) We started the month off with spring break.  Bryan didn’t get back until Friday night that week.  Poor guy missed spring break altogether. I took advantage of the time off school to encourage Jonathan […]

July 2014 preview

July 2014 preview

So… yeah.  I got behind again.  I started working on the March post in early April – so timely!  And then it took me nearly 4 months to finish it.  Oops. July isn’t quite over yet and I still have some pictures to gather, but for now, here is a preview: Aaron hit the 7 […]

March 2014

March 2014

The month of March started with Aaron hitting the four month mark.  Here he is on March 2nd, looking as adorable as ever: I’ll be honest, March was a rough month.  Bryan ended up out of town or in meetings the majority of the time and parenting alone is hard!  On the picture side, that […]

Another 2014 snow storm?!?

Another 2014 snow storm?!?

Monday, February 10, brought another winter storm warning.  Yes, another Monday, just two weeks after the last one.  This time the schools decided to take the opposite tactic from a few weeks before.  The storm was supposed to start Monday night and we knew by early Monday morning that all after school activities were cancelled.  […]

The Snowpocalypse of 2014

The Snowpocalypse of 2014

Snow is pretty rare here in Georgia.  Some years we’re lucky if we even see a couple of flakes.  Because of this, we don’t have many city snowplows or sand/salt trucks available. Even a “minor” winter storm can cause the roads to get pretty sketchy, even for a native Utahn.  Out here, snow usually comes […]

February 2014

February 2014

First of all (literally, the first day of the month), this happened: Kathryn lost her first tooth. It was knocked out. Yep, knocked out.  Courtesy of Emma. In Emma’s defense, she was aiming for Jonathan.  Not that that makes it any better… Jonathan played tooth fairy for her.  :) Other than the fact that the […]

A brief overview of January. :)

The rest of December 2013

The rest of December 2013

Despite the thumbnail picture and the name of this post, it’s still mostly pictures of Aaron.  But I slipped in a few other things as well.  :) The last post left off on December 16th, when Aaron was exactly 2 weeks old.  Just because I really like that picture, I’ll start this post with it.  […]
