{Sunday Photograph - 136}


These three got older this week.  Have you ever just looked at your kids one day and realized they look and seem older?  Well when it usually happens around these parts it only happens one at a time, but this time...it was all three and it about gave my mother heart a heart attack. 

Birthday-fest is coming up this week.  Three birthdays all within 2 weeks of each other.  That's a lot of cake, presents and celebrating. 

This past week we spent some time with friends at a local splash pad and the pool.  It was nice not having to worry about a little baby at either of those places.  Though I am sad my kids are growing up, I am, at the same time, loving this new freedom I have.  They look after each other and I can sit in the sun, wade in the pool and talk with friends.  I think it's safe to say I am in a new chapter of life.

This week more pool visits, hikes up the canyon, visiting with friends a back to school open house (already?!) and some needed me time.

We have officially been here a month. The kids are adjusting quite nicely.  We've all missed the beaches and our friends in California at different times.  Jonas hasn't asked for a few days now if this is our new home or when we will be going back to California so it's starting to stick that we are here for the long haul I think.

Happy Sunday!

*The empty picture frame and the shelf behind the kids is still a work in progress...slowly but surely the house is coming together.
