Just Because,

Sometimes they run and scream and cry, and the tension mounts

I stop to enjoy the things they are

The things they do

Working on drawing Bible stories as we go

Big sister picks up fork to help the smallest eat

Open poem book we read and work on while we sit and run.

Math especially for the kindergartener was Chutes n Ladders

Bella and I were on 96, ahead of the gang. I went to roll the dice and the anticipation in the room was on full alert!

We won :)

Hannah in her senior year, was home sick for the day. She put on her scarf, poured a cuppa tea, and studied for her SAT anyway. I thought she looked adorable and snuck in a non Facebook pose to show the world what I see everyday. I still see her as the spunky young heart that flashed its happiness and trust daily in our home with her rough play with brothers, mischievous but innocent laughter, devoted loyalty to her family, love of animals, beanie babies, climbing trees, drawing deer, constant smiles. Happy Hannah has not suited her more.



  1. I love seeing all the happy faces of your household! Love you all!

  2. What a great view of your day! Of course I love the pictures! The kids are getting sooo big!

  3. I love that photo of Hannah... and what great moments you captured!!
