A month? It's been over a month since I last logged in to this little blog-o-mine. Can't say I have too many excuses . . . just work and kids and meetings and laundry. . . . lots and lots of laundry.
Well, to get this little site up to speed, here's what needs to be said (written?).
We were a little goofy last month. I found my shutter remote, and I was determined to get a few pics of us all together. Tough thing is that the focus when using one of those remotes is tricky - and hard - and perhaps meant for someone with greater skill than I, but I'll keep trying.
We were rockstars for an evening. . .
My boy started playing soccer. This is his first organized sport, and I'm not sure that he really loves it. The first few games/practices were tricky - he was frustrated and cried a lot because he didn't get a chance to kick the ball. He didn't understand that everyone would try to kick the ball and not wait their "turn" to get some action. He's doing better now that he's starting to understand the concept. His last game of the season is this weekend.
I'm trying hard to take more photos of my kiddos, "just as they are." Being a self-proclaimed lover of photoshop, it's hard for me to not fully edit every image and try my best to get the most perfect shot. I'm LEARNING to let go of this, and I gotta say, I like the results. These kids are amazing - they don't need me to doctor-up their pictures to be remembered that way.
We're desperately hanging on to the daylight of our shortened days. We start our mornings early on the weekends and try to spend as much time outside as we can while we can. We've been having a wonderful fall around here. These first two images were taken early morning in a park close to our home, and the last one there is how we ended our day in our own yard.
Love these moments.
Love this family.
Miss this blog.
I'll try to do better, but sometimes life happens, and I'm learning to embrace that, so pardon me if I'm a little absent around here.
