This is Stella's Halloween costume this year. She loves Nahco Libre. She has the whole movie memorized. I think she pulls it off rather nicely don't you? Hug hug, kiss kiss, hug hug, big kiss, little hug, kiss kiss, little kiss.
This year Tucker is in 6th grade! I can't believe he is a middle schooler. Hannah is in 3rd grade, and Hallie is in Kindergarten!! Hallie seems much to small to me to start kindergarten. Every time she gets on the bus I think to myself, "she should stay home with me, she's too little to go to school". But of course, Hallie thinks otherwise. She is so "big"! And Stella is a busy woman. She goes to a preschool co-op two days a week and then to Grandma's preschool for an afternoon. I miss her when she's not around. Zoe misses her too, she walks around like a lost puppy looking for a friend. Everyone but mom is excited for this school year. I really like when my kids are at home. I miss them all day long.
In August, my husband and kids participated in a triathlon. I was so proud of all of them. It was my husband's first one. He was amazing, finishing in just under 3 hours. It was Stella's first one also. She was so cute. I ran with her and she ran most of the way. Tucker, Hannah, and Hallie are old pros. This was their 2nd year participating. It was on Tucker's birthday and he still wanted to do it. I was so proud of them. I am thankful for my family's good health, that they can do things like this. Staying fit and active is important to me, and I feel so blessed that my family agrees!
Due to the constant "encouraging" of family and friends, I have decided to start a blog. I think it will be a good way to share pictures of our family and journal our life's happenings. So be patient and forgive me if I take awhile to figure this whole thing out. Feel free to give me some tips and pointers too. Like, how do all you guys have such cute pages?
I am a mom of 5 trying to juggle the everyday demands of life, children, husband, business, and laundry. Creating something everyday feeds my soul. I have decided to tackle my goal of learning photography on my own, by taking pictures every single day of the things I perceive as interesting, unique, crazy, funny, sad, or just plain mundane. I am hoping by doing this, I will be able to see the lessons I learn, the mistakes I make, and the progress I achieve throughout the year with my photographs. As my reader, I hope you will be able to give me pointers, constructive criticism, and some good ol' cheerleading along the way. Here we go!!
