A taste of June (2015)

A taste of June (2015)

Summer! So – it’s hard to organize a family.  Especially a family with many little children.  I’m trying to figure out something that will actually work for us, but for now it definitely feels more like herding cats than the ideal picture of ducklings following their mother, all in a line.  Yeah, no line here.  […]

“About Mom” interveiws

I noticed “About Mom” interview questions going around Facebook.  It is so cute to read what my friends’ little children say about them!  So I decided to see what my own children would say.  I kept them separate (except for Abigail’s, when Kathryn was around) so they had no idea what their siblings had said.  […]

Aaron is a year old!

Aaron is a year old!

It’s been a full year now since Aaron joined our family. It’s amazing how fast it feels. And yet how long ago it seems at the same time.

Emma's 8th birthday

Emma’s 8th birthday

So, I was going to label this post as July 2014 and indicate it was the second half.  But then I realized the “second half” was basically all about Emma anyway. Emma turned 8.  Wow.  She is growing and maturing so quickly! She was so excited to turn 8!  These were taken the Sunday prior […]

July 2014 (the first half)

July 2014 (the first half)

Aaron at 7 months Aaron continued building on his skills from June and by July could freely scoot himself across the floor to play with his toys. He continued to enjoy eating … … his seat.And sometimes actual food as well.  Maybe.    A sweet moment We had just finished the little ones’ bath.  Aaron […]

June 2014

I’ve gotten behind.  Way behind.  This is about 6 months behind.  Yikes!  But I don’t want to just skip all the months I’ve missed.  So I have a goal to catch up this week, at least through October.  Here I go…  :) Aaron at 6 months old Aaron is a generally happy little one.  Sometimes […]

May 2014

Saturday, May 3rd Aaron at 5 months.  Not only could he lift his head well, he could now push his chest up! I think I’m better at taking “month day” pictures for him than I have been for any other child.  It helps that it’s practically the beginning of the month.  :)  (Though these were […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.  […]
