19 Month Photos

Considering how I am botching/missing/ all of our poor little fifth child's milestones, I thought I should step out of my JC*Pennys rut and give the beautiful girl a proper photo shoot. At least!

And what a great shoot it was, with a wonderful friend to capture her curious ways at a nearby beautiful farm property! Thanks to Sally Belle Photography!

One short update from HA

Just wanted to pop in to update this lonely place with a few of our current photos. It's all I can manage at this point in my life! I do so miss the blogosphere. I am hoping that this may be the start of more posts, but I wouldn't bet on it.

We are 11 (*gasp!!*) weeks into this school year already & I am prime for a break of some sort (perhaps sewing or crafting or reading or just lots & lots of sleep?). Jefferson is in 6th grade (11yo), Reagan is in 4th grade (9.5 yo) and both are really progressing nicely & adjusting to this year's structure. I am so blessed by them and am still as excited as ever to be able to take part in their growing & learning. Adam is in 1st grade (6yo) and just now starting to read. Lincoln is technically in Kindergarden even though he is young for it (4.5yo) because he is simply ready to learn - he is reading with Adam also. It is nice to teach them together but even nicer when they play together for hours at their Leg*os!

And finally, our little Baby Boo (aka Baby Bear, Boo Bear, or Mr. Alien Bear) is already 20 months old! She is the sweetest angel we have had so far and loves to try to keep up with her siblings by trying to talk, run, 'read' books and color. What a little JOY she is to us all! She can now say"Mommy's coffee!" so the next step is to teach her "Half-caf creamnosugar!", right?

No time for more as life is in constant motion around here and I'd like to try to learn to crochet rather than sit at my slow computer. Enjoy!
