Catching Up

Whew! Life has really been flying on by. I need to post some pictures! Here’s some from the last couple months or so. Many of them are from my iPhone because I just haven’t been carting my camera around with me very often. I have been staying busy with the kids, as usual. I’ve also been working on a website/project which is built around storytelling. If that interests you, please check Library of Impressions out.

Ok. I’ll start from oldest to most recent. There’s a lot of pictures…

There’s nothing in this world that Micah seems to love more than dogs and puppies. He picked out “buddy” and LOVES him.

Early in the summer we found a dove who made a nest and laid eggs in our plant. They later would hatch and eventually leave the nest. It was fun to see the progress throughout the summer.

No more $20 haircuts – we decided to start giving haircuts to the boys ourselves.

  1. As always, your photos are fantastic and your family is beautiful. If you’re ever in Northern Indiana, please let me know. Whether I’m there or not, our farm has puppies 75% of the time, and grown dogs %100 of the time. I’m pretty sure the boys would have a blast, and you can get the scoop on my family’s experience living with a mutual friend of ours.

    1. Thanks for the kind words. We’d definitely try to stop by if we ever find ourselves in Northern Indiana. I’m very sure the kids would LOVE it there. Thanks!
