The past two weeks have been quite the blur. My days seem to be consisted of drying pool towels and bathing suits and making a continuous flow of snacks and meals. It seems that as soon as they are done with one snack they are asking for another. I feel like a full blown cafeteria. I stay in bed late at night planning out snacks and coming up with new food for the kids to eat. Some days we are at the pool for 3.5 hours...they literally graze the whole time I am there and then want to eat as soon as we get home. The grocery list is having to be adjusted just a bit.
I thought I would post a goofy picture of Esther from this morning...she came out wearing this hat after we got home from swim team. I love these light hearted moments...and hope to keep them close to my heart.

Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
