Back to life in pictures

Everything has been SO insane between my Grandma (she's not doing well), wrapping up the final reporting stuff for homeschooling, having an extra kid.... and then of course my cousin Lisa got me onto Facebook - like I needed something else! But I've managed to do some of my favourite things (take pictures, play with my kids and honey), so here's a bit as of late...

I LOVE this picture of Liam - so completely him! The giggle, the smoosh, the squish... Liam. We've had Jesse visiting with us from Guatamala for the past week, so these three have been quite the team. Again - LOVE this picture! My gorgeous honey, and my squishy son.

The guys heading out on a hike. Samuel of course has everything that he may possibly need. Including his lantern... it's about 2 in the afternoon. He's got about six books in that pack too... Samuel and my Dad never leave home without at least one book, and usually more!


I love this part of our day... just laying around reading to the kids. "Hey Mom, can you read to us now?" How do you say no to that? Samuel said the other day, "we're still going to read every day all throught the summer, right Mom?"




Some beach shots taken today of the cutest little mermaid that ever lived...




I love where we live! the beach again... Great weather, great day, and about 5pm the waves picked up and the lake started to feel a bit like an ocean.

Oh, I'm so happy to see your pictures again! I've missed your stuff. Your story about Samuel was beautiful - it actually brought tears to my eyes. I love the pictures of Teigan at the beach and the one of your husband and Liam - so cute. Keep them coming! I'm sorry to hear about your grandma. I do hope that she'll be alright.

I think I have been going through withdrawal from not seeing your photos for a while, so thanks!


I have wondered how they are doing in Guatemala the past year. It must have been an interesting transition for them. Nice that Jesse to be here with your boys.

I totally agree about the "ocean-y" feel of the lake after it gets a bit choppy. I have always wanted to be on the Atlantic coast for that reason, but not too keen on their climate, so I get the best of both worlds here.

Your pictures as always have such a great mood to them. How do you capture that? I can almost hear the waves.

See you this week-
