Catch-up Day! Days 19-23

Well, I've already fallen behind and it's only January- yikes! Actually, I've shot everyday, it's the editing and posting that take the time.


Josie had her first haircut at the age of 39 months! She smiled, grin and giggled the whole time. She was so excited to get a haircut, just like her big sister.




3 of our kids are in the homeschool band program. It's a huge program with 4 bands, 4 orchestras, 4 choirs, ensembles, marching band, etc. Tahlia is in Intermediate Orchestra, Fiddle Class and Middle Color Guard. (I just got a picture this week of her in color guard.) Heath is in Intermediate Band and Boys Choir. Clayton is in Advanced Band, Big Band (Jazz), Boys Choir and Drumline. Next Wednesday, I'll grab more pictures of them in their different groups.

I did shoot on this day, but it was a client, not around our house or our family.

Tahlia is back in ballet this semester and she is loving it! She makes a beautiful ballerina. I need to convince her to let me photograph her in her lovely leotard, tights, leg warmers and skirt.

Day 22 was also my birthday. 39 years old! (For real.) I had tons of wishes on my facebook page. Thanks, friends!


Some dear friends have invited us down to Florida for a free vacation- they will host us, feed us and find cheap things for us to do. We, at first, turned them down because with Greg off work, we didn't feel right about even paying for the gas and food for the ride down. A few weeks later, a check came in the mail for more than enough money to get us down there and back! What a blessing! We are staying with them for most of a week and then with my in-laws for a couple days. We'll go in mid February. It is nice to have something to look forward to, after a couple years of being so financially tight, with nothing "fun" or "special" to do. It will also be nice to get out of the Michigan winter and into some warmer weather.

  1. Woohoo- it sounds like this trip is meant to be! Florida will be a wonderful break from the cold of the north!
