Every Day Life - Spring Pictures

 So, you can tell it's been busy here since I go into blogging hibernation.  :)  Honestly, after Luke 14 is over, I end up in this overwhelmed funk and it takes my brain a few weeks to recover and feel like I have anything creative to give.  This year was better than before, except that I committed to teach at a Disability Ministry Conference a month later.  I know a month is a long time in between, but add a few things out of my control in there and it's just been crazy for too long!  So anyway, here are two posts with some pictures of this spring.


 My boy turned 9!!  It's so hard to believe.  Some days he just still seems like he still needs so much direction, and then on other days I send him to ride his bike or walk the dog around the block alone and he seems so big! 

He is teaching me so much... about myself, about my relationship with the Lord, about life.  He is so much like I was as a kid, like I am now.  He helps me understand myself, really.  But that helps me understand him too.  For that I'm thankful!
My parents came down for Luke 14 and Jacob's birthday.  I am trying really hard to take pictures of every day things so I don't find out I've missed my chance.  I don't have enough pictures of my kids with their grandparents.
 
Mattie and our neighbor getting a few quiet minutes without the older boys in the mix.

Mattie moving her stumps (home of several imaginary friends) to a safer place in the yard) with Daddy's help.  (I could watch my man work on big boy toys all day long!) 

These precious feet I struggle to keep clean in the warmer months.  My barefoot girl who loves to wear dresses and dig for worms...

Enjoying a good read like Mommy... 

 Chatting on her phone like Mommy...
 
Dancing... totally not like Mommy!
