"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."

Iphone edition. We were at bible camp this week! I absolutely brought my big camera, but I hardly used it. Sometimes the Iphone is just more convenient, and I actually like how it challenges me!

Summer has hit and we've enjoyed being outside. Sienna got hit with a fever which cut one of our park trips short, but she bounced back quickly! We are going to soak in every bit of sun we can. Our time with it is short :)

How are we half way through already? These are perhaps some of my favorite portraits ever. Our first morning home on summer break. There is perfection found in the simplicity of just being together.

Slowing Down

These kids are all mine for the summer! We celebrated with slurpees and a nice slow walk. That is one thing I love about summer. Slow mornings, slow days, the fact that we can just take our time getting where we are headed. Of course there are days that is not possible still, but the summer lends to slow days far more often. Here's to a good change of pace!


Goodbye Kindergarten!

Well, I'm not sure how it has happened so quickly, but yesterday was Coen's last day of kindergarten. To be honest it wasn't the easiest year. There were tears in the mornings until the very end. There was lots of good too, however. Lots. He had the greatest teacher who was the perfect dose of sensitive to help Coen succeed this year. He was always fine once he got to school, and I know he was able to settle in everyday knowing she was there as a support for him. He made some really great friends. This boy is fiercely loyal so it was good for him to have to share his friends with others a little too. It is hard for me to send my babies to school. I really try and not let that rub off on them, but Coen gets me so well. I'm praying for more trust and grace in this season. For right now though, I'm so happy he's all mine for 2 months.. and his sister joins us after tomorrow!

P.S.. I've figured out that the only way I can get myself to blog more frequently is to settle for Iphone pictures.. importing, editing, exporting, uploading.. that's a lot of steps I can skip from my computer.. So, it may not always be picture perfect, but I'll take it!


My Backyard..

Oh, the wonders that take place in my backyard. It would be easy to look out and notice the lack of space, the ugly fence, the dead spots in the grass, and the deck that desperately needs paint.. Instead, I get to look out and see these lovely laughing faces with their dirty feet, messy hair, and missing clothes. It is good.

I miss giving my thoughts a space here on this little blog. It has been months since I've let my words pour out over the keys. I'm praying to find time for 'here' in my days. While there are many pictures of my kids, I want them to look back and be able to find a piece of me left here as well..
