Each month every one in our family takes a picture of their ordinary life on an ordinary day. It helps us to stay connected as a family and watch each other grow and change. It's a wonderful little tradition. I'm grateful for my family.
|Abe: Tomorrow is Grace's birthday but she has a meeting so we|
celebrated tonight. Henry helped her blow out the candles.
|Afton: our next door neighbor's dad made him a pedal bike airplane,|
and I got to test-drive it.
|Ty: Afton gave me this picture of Little Critter's family.|
|Atlas: Our new bike trail has lots of cool stuff on it.|
|Levin: riding on the bike trail by our house.|
|Calvin: Scooping manure out of the steer pen.|
|Eliza: our family is working on being more grateful. |
Today I drew some pictures of things I'm grateful for,
and tried to remember to say thank you a lot.
|Grace: tomorrow is my 30th birthday and I'm feeling old. |
I am far from ever being as flexible as Hazel.
|Hazel: loves saying "cheese" for the camera and giving a big toothy grin.|
|Henry: counts the days down to family night. |
Here he's showing off his trick jumping as
far as he can to dad.
|Jane: After a very fun and fulfilling Easter weekend with Ray, Cali, Levin, Atlas, Abe, Grace,|
Henry, and Hazel, this was the only sign they'd been here -- a very saggy, baggy Pooh tossed
on top of the piano. He seemed to miss them as badly as I did.
|Kathryn: Mrs. Potato Head|
|Cali: Slowly but surely we're getting settled in our new home.|
|Michelle: My incredible husband gave me some delightful |
kid-free time today so I could go on a refreshing run
down by the airfield this morning.
|Ray: Lifting Levin up to retrieve someone's birthday balloons out of a |
tree at the park. We didn't have them more than a minute before he lost
them. Easy come, easy go.
|Winnie: How I do the pool -- in the stroller sucking on a pineapple spear.|
|Ande: Zeph and Ezra trying to encourage Winnie to crawl.|
