I love to grab the camera when my kids aren't looking and capture life as it is happening. Below are two of my favorite shots from the summer.
While our school year started off with a bang, it had a shorter life than a firecracker on the 4th of July. We had a come-to-jesus-meeting today concerning poor attitudes, sibling rivalry, and complaining spirits. One of my children, who shall remain nameless dug in his heels which may or may not have ended with a nice little car ride to the local public school parking lot for a taste of reality. Upon our return, I had 3 little angels ready to love and appreciate the education they are receiving. I don't like playing bad cop, but sometimes that's what it takes. I'm just glad we got it settled now, rather than allowing myself to wear thin and give up. And do the ugly cry.
In other news...
I saw an albino buck while running yesterday. Now my hubby wants me to carry a rifle while I exercise. Apparently an albino buck is the golden challis of the league of hunters, worldwide.
I spent 30 minutes on the phone with the tailor today. Our seamstress has the cutest asian accent with a deep south twang. She was calling to tell me that she was going on vacation but the dresses would be ready and since I was so sweet and "hab saweet bebes" she'd give me a good "pwice". See, it pays to be saweet. :) Which is a good thing, since I have 3 bridesmaid dresses to have altered.
We moved all of the kids' beds around last night. Family fun, I tell ya. Today I was faced with 17 mountains of bed linen laundry. Sigh. But everybody feels like they've had a room makeover, so I'll get over it.
I moved my front porch furniture to the back porch and love it. A little change in the heat of summer is nice. Now I know where my kids get it from.
Enjoy your day!!!
