Just thought I'd drop a little line to all of you. I know I haven't been around very much the past couple of months. The fantastic weather has kept me pretty busy with the boys...and my photography. I've had 4 sessions and more on the way. My Pastor still wants me to do the church directory, though I kind of just want to take the pictures and have someone else deal with the scheduling. I don't really have time for that, as I keep myself busy with editing and with the kids. My boys NEED outdoor time in order to keep them from killing each other. After school, we typically spend about 3 hours at the park or at a playdate with his school friends. It's been an amazing mood booster for me. But I'm thinking I need to start bringing the laptop with me so I can edit I'm really trying to enjoy the good weather before it gets too hot to even go outside anymore. We moved here in August, and I swear we didn't get to play outside until October! It was 115 degrees the day we moved in. Not fun.
Anyway, I didn't want to leave you guys hanging. I'm sure you'll see more of me as the weather gets hotter. I'm going to try to keep the kids busy with VBS at various churches so they keep from fighting too much. The trick is finding programs for Jackson. He's pretty mature for his age, so it's hard for me when I see they all start at age 4, because I know he's ready. Swimming lessons are already booked, and we have a vacation to plan for July. School will be here before I know it (at least I keep telling myself that so I don't go crazy thinking about the summer ). Jackson will be going to school 3 days a week, so I will have a little more time on my hands until November. Then things will get crazy again! But at least I'll be able to practice my newborn skills lol!
As far as that goes, the pregnancy is going by great! Our parents still don't know, and my parents even made a visit last weekend lol! I should share a couple of belly progressions for you. I take the photos, but rarely have time to process them. My last appointment was on Wednesday, and Jackson was with me. He knew exactly what was going on, and even came home and spilled the beans to Carson at dinner that night. I just played dumb, and brushed it off. He hasn't brought it up since, so he must have forgotten. Our big u/s is on June 10th!!! I seriously can't wait! I'm bursting at the seams wanting to shout it out to everyone. I have told a few close friends, but that's it!
I will try to pop in a little more often. I feel like I'm only ever on my phone anymore, and rarely on the computer/laptop. So that makes CCing difficult. Not to mention, I hardly ever get a chance to process my own photos at the moment. I hope to get some on here to share soon. Maybe I'll make a point of that during naptime today.
In the mean time, I did manage to get my Mother's Day photos uploaded to Flickr. Jackson wasn't too cooperative. Carson was all about getting his picture taken, but Jackson kept running away. And we were about to head out for our dinner reservations, so we weren't able to take our time with him. But I am impressed with what we did get! And that Drew used BBF, and there are useable photos! LOL!!
