photo booth phun

My girls with Ella P.

Molly, right after her first self-inflicted hair cut in the spring of 2010

this is presh
I love binky babies.
there, i said it.
don't judge.


1.) My hair was SO short here but I loved it
2.) this pic reminds me of my mom

i like this pic because jack was in my tummy here. (I look horrible)
I don't like it because E, David and Moo are missing.

But Moo ends up in pleeeeenty of photo booth fun. Here she is with Miss P.

Most of my goofy sons

We even have some Ellie N. fun in our photo booth

and a boy with a panda on his noggin
Not that I am suffering from a shortage of pics, by any means...because I know I post plenty on Facebook and Instagram...but these will have to do for this evening.

Can I just say that I'm overwhelmed?

ok. thanks for letting me get that off of my chest. admitting something is half the trip to getting better, right?

As if homeschooling wasn't an undertaking in and of itself...having a self employed husband, who does a good portion of his work from home or on his phone (in our home or in our presence), and two sons and one daughter who work for him a couple times a week, and a wife (that's me) that helps out to pay for her cell phone, and classes the kids take and yada yada yada....We have just switched payroll companies this week. A very cool new program but still so intimidating for me. I'll be fine and I'm already figuring it all out (and it's kinda fuuuuun) but it just seems like a lot and I feel like I'm zoned out half of the time, trying to remember every dang thing I GET to do. not have to. get to.

if I can just look at it that way, it makes it seem a little bit more bearable.

All is well...dealing with stress does not agree with me. choose joy.

just go ahead and choose it. no one can do it for ya.
and we have so much to be thankful for. well, except this oppressive heat...and lack of rain but otherwise, we have sooo much to be thankful for. Fresh garden tomatoes, cool kids, a swimming pool, sunflowers,  clean clothes, food in our tum tums, Mary Poppins playing downstairs before we have to take it back to the library, a hard working and helpful hubby, a God who supplies all of our needs.

I could go on but I'm going to bed early tonight. I've GOT to get these younger kiddos on a better schedule. gotta.

gotta run...hope you are well. stay cool. happy 50 years ago that MLK made his I have a Dream speech.
