The Days Are Long, But The Years Are Short.

I love this quote. It sums up life in general. Thanks to Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project for this memorable quote. :)

This Is Why I Haven’t Updated

Halfway through January we decided to pull our 10 year old son out of public school.  He’s now being homeschooled again and we will continue that until he’s ready to go back to public school if at all.  Some quick history… he’s been homeschooled since his 2nd semester of kindergarten. At the beginning of 4th grade he had to enroll in public school in order to continue playing football.  Unfortunately the  state of KY decided against the “Tim Tebow” bill which would have allowed homeschooled kids to play on local public school sports teams. Apparently everyone really doesn’t want what is best for the kids. 

365 Day #32: The Rules Don’t Apply To Me

I didn’t pick up my camera on day 32 so I’m sharing another from our recent Valentine session. I love this shirt because it kind of sums up how we live our life.

*If you are wanting to take some awesome photos of your kiddos with a Valentine’s theme check out this post, DIY Mini Valentine Photo Session, that I wrote for the Family Buzz.

365 Day #31: These Boots Are Made For Splashing!

My boys are deeply attracted to the creek that runs in front of our house. I’m a bit concerned with what is floating in it. Yeah, it looks pretty in this picture when the water is flowing freely but sometimes it’s not so pretty. 

Lifesaver = long rubber boots. This was taken yesterday. In January. It almost felt like Spring! And, yes, you are finally seeing a portrait of my camera shy 10 year old ( he will be 11 in a couple of weeks) sporting his mohawk.

365 Day #30: Be Unpredictable

I had a few awesome shots from today. This is one of them.

My little guy and I were rocking our Valentine session until we almost stepped on a big black snake. After that I did what anyone terrified of snakes would do, I ran.  Yes I ran and acted all kinds of crazy even though the snake was non-poisonous. Of course my craziness didn’t phase my child because he had to go back and take a peek at the snake. Then we left. The end.

365 Day #29: Cupcakes

I made 24 of these cupcakes less than 24 hours ago. There are only 3 left. We have a serious cupcake problem.

P.S. I skipped Day #28.

365 Day #27: Saving The Day As Usual


365 Day #26: Learning Can Be Fun!

“Too often we give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.” ~Roger Lewin

365 Day #23: At The Hospital

Our 7 year old has  eosinophilic esophagitis. He has to endure endoscopies quite often.  This was surgery 7 or 8. It could be number 9. At this point I’ve lost count.

This past Monday at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital taken with the iPhone.  It was our terrible horrible no good very bad day!

If you’ve read my blog in the past or know me personally then you already know all about our boy. If you are new here, you may want to read Eosinophilic Esophagitis and Eating, The Ice Cream Truck Crisis, On E.E. , and Living With Eosinophilic Esophagitis to learn more about our son and eosinophilic disorders.
