|It is a challenge to get a good family photo. When we were done with the formal the fun shots are playing in the water. I can still hear their laughter that night and just the thrill of soaking their clothes!|
|I haven't even looked at our formal shot yet because these are the ones I love!|
|I will move on to fall now, but I will remember these days! |
There is big news in our life right now. I will post more about that soon!

|We spent most of our days on the beach without any other destinations. Of course they had to stop at one gift shop and only the one with the big shark mouth would do. |
I have spent a great part of my adult life scrapbooking. I sold Creative Memories for a long time and have books filled with lots of detail and design. This summer I spent a week not sleeping trying to figure out how to get my photos, that I so love, into books. I decided some of my photos I will continue to do in a more fancy way but some are going to be done with "Project Life". It has been so much fun and simple. Simple to get my photos where they need to be in books with stories. Always good to change things up a bit...but then again that is what life is about!

|Mr. Andrew is in third grade this year. He was excited to be back with friends and for the first time spent a lot of time picking out his outfit today.|
|Riley is in eighth grade this year. He went back as a leader to help the sixth graders learn the ropes.|
|Miss Katie is a third grader this year. She loves everything about school and new books to read and take home will be her favorite.|
|Sweet Brianna is a fifth grader this year. She is so very social and dreams of being a teacher one day.|
These last seventeen years have been filled with roads that run straight and roads that curve in the most unexpected places. We were just 22 and 24 when we got married. We had no idea at that time just how hard it really would be, how we really did have to compromise, and how it really feels to have unconditional love. We didn't know what is really means to be a parent and at the same time try to continue to make our marriage work. I think we were blessed to not really "know" how hard it would be.
I am looking forward to where this marriage is headed. My heart is telling me changes are coming. Adding (oh hopefully please) another child to love to the mix and other changes on the horizon. I hope one day Brian and I are old together at the beach the place we love the most!

|We just got back from a wonderful vacation at the beach. They were less than excited that they would have to be in the car for their birthday. Lucky for them we could not find a room anywhere last night and ended up driving until early this morning.|
