Well, I was so touched by the story Wren and her family that I sent a note.
to them . You can read about it here.
It was a not an easy note to write. Actually I wrote it out twice.
Because what do you say to someone who has stage 4 cancer and is
in a battle for her life....
with 3 small babies?
I felt like such a complainer after I read her story...
I also, sent a little package to someone.
I hope it brings a smile to her face and some joy to her heart.
i also , took my kids out and shot some photos of them... yesterday.
being that Maddie was not at all cooperating and Emily was complaining
about the bugs and deer poop...
I was yelling , " How hard is it to cooperate for some photos"
(not my proudest Mom moment)
seriously, I always feel the best when I am photographing other people's families
when I let it just happen.
Like 3 year olds, not looking into the camera...
or teenagers complaining...
but when it is my kids...
well, I just want them to listen and do what I tell them.
I am a horrible mother... they are going to look back at all the
photo shoots I have put them thru and they will grimace at how awful their momma is....
hopefully, they will be in awe of the beautiful art she was creating
(just kidding, people)
anyway, I love my kids and I love that they are just being themselves.... in these photos.
(I came to this conclusion right now...)
this one is soooo my girls.
The next three may be my favorite from the whole lot of them.
I photographed them at the farm house in the town I live in
that my Great Great Grandfather built and owned.
They sold it in the late 1800's and built a home across the street. Part
of that property is where we live now.
Pretty cool.. I LOVE genealogy.
So these photos to me are pretty neat.
My kids are standing on the porch of their Great Great Grandparents home.
Peeking in the windows...
I love my kids. They make me happy. Even when I would like to wring their necks...
I need to pray for more patience.
