My attempt to get the kids to sit for a picture. I think I better leave it to the professionals. They wouldn't cooperate as to where to sit, or move, or smile and look like they were having fun...which I was not after about 2 sec.

Today is blank. That's kinda how I'm feeling today. Nothing looked picture interesting today. And really I just didn't want to take pictures today. Tomorrow...

At the end of the evening, everyone scatters and mommy does dishes. Not my ideal, but it is. I have a friend that can not leave dirty dishes in her kitchen. She will not go to bed until her kitchen is beautiful. What a wonderful thing to wake up to! And yet, for some reason I can't get that same uneasiness about leaving a dirty kitchen. It is more of a "have to" chore. I know that means I should train my children to clean the kitchen, but even that sounds like a big chore...another chore for the mommy. It really is a never ending chore list, isn't it!

August 25, 2009 ish

Yesterday was a full day...the kids got to meet their teachers and we had to get last minute supplies...organize clothes...and lunches...and special dinner and dessert...and baths and showers...well needless to say, I missed taking a picture. I can't believe that after this long I missed a day! So this is first thing this morning instead.

This is what Jeffrey does right now when we try to take pictures...its real life.

Mike took his CWI test this morning, then we spent the rest of the day visiting people. First, Davey & Ashley (Mike's second cousins once removed) and their daughter, Dawson. She is such a cutie and Davey & Ashley are awesome parents!
Then we visited with our college friend, Ron Bansil. Great time catching-up!

No people in today's pic, but had to share where we ate dinner. Why?
Because we missed GOOD Mexican food! This place was amazing! They make their enchiladas with Chihuahua cheese!!! (not cheddar like most of Billings' restaurants)

Fifteen years of adventure together! And its still an adventure!
Hairpin turns of the Beartooth Pass. But no more pictures because the rest of the day was spent with thunderstorms. Thank you, Lord, for rain gear!

My son (far left, in the red shorts) playing basketball in the rain tonight. And me taking pictures from the front porch...see I'm a supportive mother! He had such a blast, despite the fact that half the team didn't show.
