Blogging

I thought I had moved on from blogging, but this is a really important medium for me to keep things organized and remember the sequence and narrative of things.  I take a lot of iPhone pictures, but the ones from my camera often have no home...

Family Pictures









We traded family pictures this year with another family - we took their's and they took ours.  We had a good time and I really like how they turned out.  The kids are at a such a cute stage but it is also a very busy season of life.  I hope I emerge from the chaos of toddler years with a clear memory of how fun it was too.  At this moment in life 
Mike {is loved at his job and offered new positions regularly * serves with the teachers quorum and has found that his sarcastic and yet quiet humor has connected with several boys * is a softy and lets the kids sleep in our bed more often than not}
Lucy {is learning a lot about and becoming passionate about helping others less fortunate * is beautifully articulate and so adept at negotiating with logic that his hard to argue with * doesn't feel cold, ever * loves my little ponies, her scooter, her big stuffed dog, and puppets * likes to help with everything}
Reid {climbs on everything * jumps off of everything * is just starting to mimic words * seems to only eat applesauce and milk * cuddles with Mike for a long time a night * wakes up early}

Mornings

The kids cling to Mike while he walks out the door each morning and then run to a window to wave goodbye.  It feels like full on trauma for these two each morning, having to say goodbye.
