Remember Us???

Wow it has been awhile since we've been around this blog!  So, so much has happened I'm a little overwhelmed in thinking about catching you all up so I probably will just have to skip that and do my best to take baby steps in keeping this blog up and hopefully somewhat current.

Lightning fast update?

We have a 5 year old about to start kindergarten after Labor Day, a 3 year old a week away from beginning preschool, a unemployed educator still hoping for a miracle to be rehired in the next few weeks, a part-time photographer momma contemplating the life of becoming a full-time business woman again and hearts full of thankfulness and joy at the fun (and fast) summer we've been enjoying as a family!

Today we enjoyed our church's annual baptism potluck and thanks to rough waters our normal river baptism was held at a local pool and park and I think the kids had even more fun because they were able to enjoy the pool too!  Here are a few pics from our day:

McGee was having a blast being a "hero" - something he learned all about at Summer Blast (Vacation Bible School)!

The kids loved hanging out in the beach entry pool and we couldn't have asked for better weather!

I love this shot of them together

The pool wore Miss Em out!  Daddy had to hold her while we waited in line for food.

It feels great being back here on our blog - I hope you've all had a wonderful summer too!


  1. Yay! I've missed ya :) The kids look a foot taller :)

  2. So glad to see you again!! Love the pictures!

  3. Great to see you again! It's sad that I won't be seeing everyone at drop off this year. I'm hoping you'll be at MC?!

    Sorry to hear about the job situation but I'll continue to be in prayer.
