7 years already

At the end of a long day, neither of us looking our best, we pause for a quick smile to set as a remembrance of the day.

Braska is 7.  It seems unreal.

I wish I had time to type through some of the ponderings and thoughts that have been swimming around in my head during the busyness of the last week.  How much has changed in 7 years for both of us…

But I don’t have the luxury of that time.  Maybe by next year.

Now to figure out what to do with the 20 kids (and their parents) who are coming to B’s party on Saturday at the cheer gym. It’ll be a blast.  Do I go last-minute cookies? Cupcakes? Little D*bbie something or other?  To say I don’t have 10 minutes to devote to getting ready is an understatement. 

But what else is new, right? 

The girl will have fun, so all shall be right.

Happy Birthday, Beauty. Onward and upward.

Photography: Fall. Attempt.

This afternoon I tried to get some fun fall photos of the girls. But they were not all that… ahem… cooperative.  Well, Braska wasn’t.  Kinlee threw some leaves and called it done.  I did get a few that I liked alright.

Big ole' bon fire

Enjoying a cool evening by a huge bonfire with friends... Props to Hillsboro, MO!  That's M and his two tiny helpers stoking the monster.
