my kids

We had some family pictures taken last weekend.  I love getting new family pictures.  It's fun to see how much the kids have grown and changed over the years.  (not quite as fun to see my changes...but oh well.  I need to learn to grow old gracefully :)  I'm not even old.  Josh is the old one.  He is going to be 35 on Memorial Day!   I have some cute kids, if I do say so myself...

I was really happy to see that all of the children were looking at the camera and smiling.  I have to have a photographer do this for me.  I can NEVER get a picture of my kids together and smiling.  A certain little one is always trying to run away- another one is trying to catch him, etc... It just turns into mayhem. 

I am so blessed.  These are 5 of the best kids you'll ever meet, I love them so much. 

A good citizen, and an official 2nd grader as of May 24th

Somebody is turning into a big boy.  Look at him on the big boy swing!

She likes to hang upside down on a regular basis.  I don't understand. 

Doing some before bed studying.  I really don't know what he was doing, but when I walked into his room he was studying the map, perhaps planning his world takeover. 

Enjoying his smoothie.  It's really pureed vegetables and fruit, but smoothies to us. 


  1. Those are nice family pictures.

    BTW, Nick has a world map (that he bought with his own money) on his wall, too.
