They're growing up too fast

My little scientist, as usual... exploring. I used this picture instead of one of Samuel inspecting the the dead quail a couple of days ago (although you may just get that later). Sometimes, at six, he is still such a little boy and I need to remember and cherish that. Other times he just seems so old and I don't know where the time has gone.
Someday, many, MANY years from now, some man will marry her... but he will never have known the little mermaid who wears her goggles at the park and who wants to grow up to be a flower in the daytime and a fire breathing dragon in the night time. Stop growing and just stay here for a while longer. I love these of Liam. It's unusual to actually get serious pictures of Liam where he's not laughing his little red head off... these are really neat because they really show another side of him. He looks so much older than four to me in that last picture - of course the food (or dirt) around his mouth brings him back down a bit!

Oh Karyn- these are precious photos as usual. The one Teigan is unbelievably cute. I love how she wants to be a flower during the day and a dragon at night. Now, if she still has the same goals when she is 16, then you may have to worry. Just kidding.

We'd love to have you guys over soon. Aidan had a playdate today that got cancelled so he is bummed. We can get the kids into the pool and sit watching and have a non alcoholic Margarita :)

Have a great day and happy schooling. I think 3-4 more weeks for us.

Such cuties! I know what you mean about Samuel seeming so young, yet other times, so not 6! Ben is like that too. He always seems so young on the phone and in videos. But there are times where you wonder if he's actually going to sprout a mustache anytime soon!

Great photos! I love your descriptions of your kids, especially your daughter. The goggle picture is hilarious and sweet.
