Raising my kids, moment by moment,
is the hardest thing I have ever done.
because I know it matters.
because I want to do it right.
because I know I won't.
because I still must try.
And mostly because there is no way I can do it alone.
I made this blog as a place to gather the inspiration as well as somewhere to put the ridiculous amount of photos I take, trying desperately to see this crazy time in our lives for what it really is--soul stretching wonderfulness, I won't want to forget.

Our Week in Photos: Glenwood Days, Wally's Beach and a little Reunion
challenging to keep up with my challenge (ha ha) over the summer.For the most part taking photos helps me
appreciate and enjoy what we're doing, but there's been a few times now that I
go home from something with a LOT of pictures but feeling like I
didn't get to chat with the people we went with. A few times, lately I've
had to deliberately decided to leave my camera at home (which
has been hard when I inevitably see little interactions knew
just wouldn't be the same on my iPhone.
So I have a few shots
fromGlenwood Days, but I only got it out at the end of the day
after I'd enjoyed lots of chatting with lots of wonderful Glenwoodites (finally
it was my dad with Enoch being buddies that I couldn't resist).
I did take it down toWally's beachwhere I'd planned one
last hangout before my friendMegan had her baby. I did get near enough
chatting in, but it was still a lovely, memorable day. Megan is one of
those terrific friends, who though we don't get together near enough, every time
we do, you feel determined to hang out more because it's
so comfortable and fun. Ben will always take credit for our life long
friendship, seeing as he was the one to suggest we room together up in Edmonton
during school. He was soooo right (as usual). She is as always the hostest with
the mostest and I feel extremely grateful to have her as a friend I
count as near and dear no matter what.
They took the kids out on their sea-doo and
Aaron was in heaven. He kept his life jacket on the whole time, hoping for more
turns and squeals happily the whole ride. He even tried very hard to verbalize
I make Jaci stand places to get my exposure right...she loves it:)
The next night we enjoyed another little get
together with old high school buddies. It's starting to be a long time ago.
It's fun watching our kids run around together.
Borrowed some suits to enjoy the hot tub:)
And of course we brought our giant ball.
Had to get a photo of all the boys
together...who complained about it...but do you think they actually
all looked at the camera at the same time??? (worse then kids, seriously).
