a day in the life...august sprinkler edition


summer is almost over and school is right around the corner...literally, we live thisclose to their school.

my kids have been hanging out at the pool and (occasionally) running through the sprinkler. i'm pretty sure though that this will be the last summer of sprinkler for the boy, because he's "getting too old for this ma".  :(

anyway, here's my kids playing around in the sprinkler.

thanks for stopping by!! please head on over to denise at denise cowan photography to see what she's been up to!!  if you get a chance, be sure to visit her facebook page too!!


this past week (or week 5,678,872 of summer vacation)

ok, so i have not been on here in a really really REALLY long time huh?

like, months right??


well, for those three people who follow my daily exploits (shout out to my husband who is one of them...thanks honey!!) i am going to try (emphasis on the word try) to start posting at least weekly here.


as long as my kids will give me five minutes before one of them tries to kick the other.

what was that you said??

oh, i'm so very sorry...i forgot to tell you!!

my daughter has taken to kicking her brother when she's ticked off at him, or even just randomly. apparently her 5 year old brain will shout "kick him right this minute for absolutely, positively, no real reason!! do it NOW!!!"

so she kicks him.


not. kidding.

nothing says "i love you" than a swift kick to the shin, am i right??!!

when does school start again??

all stories of our summertime kicking extravaganza aside, let me just tell you, it has been a struggle for me to keep up with my daily shooting and editing with the kids home this summer.

i so do NOT want to be a quitty mcquittington this go round, so i am hoping the amazing ladies that i have teamed up with, will help drag me to the finish line next january.

so without further ado, here is my week.  i cannot for the life of me remember what exactly number week i am in right now (hey, i have a kid who is KICKING. HER. BROTHER. people) so, let's just say it's 30 something or other.


thanks for dropping by and please complete the circle and head on over to my fabulous friend mary, of mary slone photography and see how her week shaped up!!! hopefully kicking was NOT involved.
