The 9 Minute Photo Shoot
Sometimes I get that panicked feeling and I rush the girls in the car to get to "that tree" because the leaves are perfect right now. And I don't want to miss them. The two most beautiful trees in the fall I've ever seen are at the girls school.
So yesterday we headed there for a few pictures. It amazes me every single year how beautiful God has made our world.
Anna was given this sweater as a hand me down. And as we were going through the bag she quickly gave it the "thumbs down". I understood of course but told her that we were going to hold on to it for a fall leave photo shoot and that she only had to wear it for 9 minutes (her age). I just knew that the colors and the texture would look perfect for in these pictures. She was happy to wear it knowing that it was only for a few minutes!
My days have filled up more than I could have possibly imagined. I LOVE being a volunteer in Kindergarten. I love my afternoons with my girls (as busy as they sometimes are). I love family dinner time, viola practice, reading logs, word rings, all of it. I have just enough time to grocery shop, clean what needs to be cleaned for the day, cook, and that's just about it. And I am happy. Still a Mom... just the way I want to be!
Tomorrow I'm off on another field trip! It's Abigail's first.. yahoo! We'll be visiting an apple orchard; and this will be her first ever bus ride. I can hardly wait!
