my baby is 4

Lula4-4edit

Lula is 4. And that might not sound like such a big deal. But it’s been a long, loooooong time since my littlest has been 4. Like 15 years, y’all. When Zach was 4, I was pregnant with Asher. And ever since then, I’ve had at least one little one under 4. Technically, all my […]

Goodness gracious. Has it already been three weeks? Thanks to those who have checked in on us – I’ve missed you, too. We are good. Really good. Just finishing up a spring break stay-cation that included some Taco Bell waffle tacos, a few trips to the library, numerous showings of Frozen, lots of sleeping in […]

Sunday Snapshot: a picnic

picnic

We took some lunch across the creek the other day and had ourselves a little picnic. I don’t have any pictures of that because, well… I was eating. I purposefully didn’t bring my big camera for several reasons. 1. I wanted to enjoy my kids and not be completely focused on getting pictures. 2. I […]

Sunday Snapshot: into the frame

woods

Sooo, I mentioned having to get “into the frame” for my photography class. Not my favorite place to be. But once we were out there, with Poppy perched on my lap, it wasn’t so bad. Okay. It was a lot of fun. Especially laughing at all the silly things Sophie and Vivienne were doing to […]

a pleasant surprise

Woods-4Edit

I had a photography assignment to do. One I had kinda-sorta been putting off. Because the assignment was to get a picture of me. *yeah* So, since I don’t own a tripod nor a remote, I figured I’d have one of my kiddos snap the picture… you know, once I’d determined the location, chosen the […]

Sunday Snapshot: start to finish

set1

Ohmigoodness. We took the kids to the McWane Science Center. And we had so much fun. For over 5 hours, 2 adults and 9 kids ran around 4 floors, giggling and squealing with delight. Okay, only some of us were squealing. And every time the kids found something wonderful, I couldn’t help but snap a […]

a love letter

jeremiah31

I am trying to teach my boys how to love scripture. And to look and listen for God in His Word. Because He is there. We are reading through the Bible using the One Year Bible plan. Every day we read some Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs. And each day we write down […]

Sunday Snapshot: beauty

sunset

This last week has been an adventure in trying to look for the beauty around me for my photography class. And, most times, I only have my iPhone in hand when I’ve been struck by something beautiful. So it’s been a real challenge. Not on the beauty part, because God is an exquisite Creator. But […]

Sunday Snapshot: 8

jude1

Today Jude turned 8. Already. We headed out after church to buy supplies for the big celebration. Because what the birthday boy wants, the birthday boy gets. As long as this mama can buy it at Target. His choice for dinner was bratwurst and homemade french fries. Dessert was yellow cake with red icing and […]
