Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Sign of Spring {RP Post}

It looks like Spring is finally arriving! We have been waiting for this for sooooo has been a long winter and it is good to be able to get outside and enjoy some warm sunny days.

Another sign that it is Spring is our calendar. My how it is filling up very fast, and our kids aren't even that "over scheduled". It looks like we will only have 1 or 2 afternoons a week that are free. The boys get home from school at about 4:00, and then one evening they have TaeKwonDo, another day it is gymnastics for M (thankfully in the morning) and then baseball practice for J immediately followed by a quick jaunt across town for N's baseball practice, yet another evening is another baseball practice for N, and N will have 2 baseball games every weekend while J will have one game every weekend. Good thing we are taking a break from swim classes! Throw in the numerous spring b-day parties they've been invited to, a cub scout activity here and there, and oh yea some house/yard work and there isn't much time to do anything else! Looks like that spring daze is going to last a bit longer.
