I sat in the car on a cold day watching back-to-back soccer games. During a break between, Shaun and the kids played boys against girls. He'd worked hard that day and had a lot on his mind, but somehow he always makes time for them, for us.
Aiden was compelled to get out and work after school. He wasn't asked and he didn't expect anything in return, its just what he does. I tell him I like a man who is a hard worker. Also, I could just eat him up with his shorts on backwards and his shoes on the wrong feet. :)
Speaking of wardrobe issues, last year these PJ's fit just fine.
Continuing with the wardrobe thing....it was school picture day so that meant dress down day, which is always very exciting. They were proud to have coordinated their outfits...the sibling picture should be interesting....the photographer was probably like what? ;)
Back to work.
I had the privilege of doing pictures for this senior, Jared my oldest nephew. In his earlier years we were neighbors and he and Shaun and I logged many hours together and formed a very special relationship. He made me laugh when he was two and now at almost seventeen he still makes me laugh. He is so gifted...I can't wait to see what God has for him!
These cousins had a blast playing together but in this picture they look like they're in a western movie, headed to a shoot out.
I feel a little rusty, but its been nice to have my camera out a bit....I miss creating beautiful things for people. With a crew this young there is a very short timeline, but we got it done. This is my newest niece, three months.
The kids had a half day and it was warm so we went to visit cousins. Amy and I had a few hours to sit outside and talk. We thought we'd also be supervising kids, but they were pretty much on their own, happy to be together for the first time in a long time. So good!
This is my view in the mornings, when the sun comes up and kisses the trees. Takes my breath away every time.
Chilly start to soccer!
